And in only 3 years time, he took a US program that hadn’t won in 10 years, to be back to back champions over an impressive European squad.
Just think about how much time he spent away from his family to scout and coach and play psychiatrist to US players in order to get them to believe in a winning mindset.
They never even used to win lags, and here they are 3 years later.
I hope he writes a book about it all. I really do.

But don't forget that Team USA won in 2009 (the rookie Hatch MVP year). So Team USA lost only 8 years in a row (7 without Johan) before the recent 2 wins. Team Europe's longest losing streak was 6, a streak that was part of losing 10 of the first 12. And then Johan appeared.
