Confident US learns from past Ryder Cup stumbles
A US Ryder Cup team more relaxed and better prepared than past losing versions takes a confident attitude into this week's showdown against holders Europe, which happily accepts its routine underdog role. "We're just tired of being told we haven't won one in a while," two-time major winner Jordan Spieth said. Spieth recalled the tension of the US losing his 2014 debut at Gleneagles.
USA's last-man Moore endures crazy days before Ryder Cup
No Ryder Cup player has ever faced the challenge that final US captain's pick Ryan Moore has this week, joining his team five days before the start of competition. The 33-year-old American was notified Sunday by US captain Davis Love that he was the last man picked for the 12-man Ryder Cup squad, nearly an hour after losing to Rory McIlroy on the fourth playoff hole for the US PGA Tour Championship title. "I was in the parking lot loading everything up," Moore said.
Moore finally gets the right Ryder Cup fit
By Mark Lamport-Stokes CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - Ryan Moore was fitted out for team uniforms as a possible Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup selection for the United States for nearly a decade, only to miss out when the final lineup was announced. Midway through this year, he was so far back in the U.S. Ryder Cup standings that he never even received the tailor's call, but he then produced a sizzling run of form on the PGA Tour to earn the last wildcard spot on Davis Love III's team. "So apparently I'm not going to do it (the fitting) from now on, ever," a smiling Moore told reporters at Hazeltine on Tuesday after a practice round with team mates JB Holmes, Brandt Snedeker and Brooks Koepka.
