It has been since 1994 that the United States has won the Ryder Cup on European soil. I heard on the Golf Channel last night Davis Love III was using a wooden driver at that time.
With the United States enlisting the most rookies in US Ryder Cup history, a so-so 2010 Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, and of course playing on the Europeans home turf…the odds (figuratively and betting wise) are against the Americans.
