Dustin Johnson the key to US' hopes in Ryder Cup

He was on the verge of a loss to Stewart Cink at Celtic Manor that might have cost Europe the Ryder Cup.

Ryan Moore was fitted out for team uniforms as a possible Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup selection for the United States for almost a decade, only to miss out when the final lineup was announced.

Eugene Hong, of Orlando, clinched the winning point on No. 18, as he sunk a five-foot par putt, to halve the hole, and a 1-up win over Matias Honkala, of Finland. Li won the Junior PGA this year at Wannamoisett.

Davis Love has ramped up the pressure on his own team by saying the popularity of the Ryder Cup in the United States is at stake at Hazeltine this weekend. Or maybe he thought he was still playing.

While Love won't hark back to previous failures - "this team hasn't played before" - he did draw some comparisons between now and 2012. Woods exited stage right, laughing at his own gaffe.

"You asked me to paint a picture (of his Ryder Cup experience) - I asked the same thing and I try and look at it every day".

"Probably the most nervous I've ever been", Phelps laughed Tuesday afternoon, just hours before teeing off in another celebrity event ahead this weekend's matches. We want this one; we're over here. I've wanted to be a part of one of these events, was beginning to think it might not happen.

The 33-year-old has finished the season strong.

The lessons proved worthwhile.

Trump then noted that the ruling in the case came from a "very against police judge" who later had the case taken away from her. Clinton: "The only years that anybody's ever seen" of Trump's tax returns " showed he didn't pay any federal income tax".

On Thursday, the tribe took its fight to Capitol Hill, where members urged House Democrats to reconsider the pipeline. Paradigm has said delays jeopardize the project and the future of the Irving, Texas-based company.

But Love has learned and a task force instituted after the dysfunctional 2014 failure has led to meticulous planning.

Tiger Woods returns to competitive golf next month, but for now, at least, he'll need to settle for vice captain duties with the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

Watson was among the final selections for the last USA captain's selection that was given Sunday to first-time Cup starter Ryan Moore hours after he finished second in a playoff to Rory McIlroy at the Tour Championship.

The Americans are back to their "pod" system that Paul Azinger used in a rare victory in 2008 and Love modified in 2012.

The Americans have four of the world's top 10 in Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Rickie Fowler and all 12 players are ranked in the world's top 31. Spieth and Reed were partners in 2014 at Gleneagles, while Johnson and Spieth were together at the Presidents Cup previous year.

He admits because of his relative youth it is sometimes hard to know when to speak up in a team room featuring the likes of veterans Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson. That certainly perked up the ears of the Europeans, who have won eight of the last 10 Ryder Cups despite being decided underdogs in majority. Matt Kuchar has a +240 payout, with J.B. Holmes and Ryan Moore each listed at +300.

"The course is set up for scoring", Clarke said.

McIlroy struck the ball so purely at the Deutsche Bank Championship that a good week of putting - finally - allowed him to rally for a 65 to win by two shots. He said he forgot that Chicago was on Central Daylight Time, and he required a police escort.

"We have been given, the first time in 20 years that I've been involved in the Ryder Cup, actual input, actual say, kind of ownership, if you will, of the Ryder Cup".
