Jennerich, 30, and Patricia Obee, 20, finished in second place to advance to the
semi-finals. They needed to place in the top three.ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – U.S.
captain Davis Love III wanted Medinah set up to favour the Americans next week
in the Ryder Cup, and he kept to a simple philosophy. The rough is down. The
speed of the greens is up. “Its going to look like a major championship because
Medinah is a big old golf course, with big trees and obviously big tents,” Love
said Monday at Sea Island Golf Club. “Its going to look like a major, but its
going to play probably easier than a major. That benefits our team. Were a
long-hitting, freewheeling, fun-to-watch team. And I think its going to be fun
to watch.” Love returned from another scouting trip at Medinah, the course in
the Chicago suburbs that has hosted the PGA Championship twice and the U.S. Open
three times. He played Sunday with his son Dru, a freshman at Alabama, and
Steve Stricker. Keegan Bradley, one of four Ryder Cup rookies for the United
States, played Medinah a week ago. Europe has dominated the Ryder Cup over the
last two decades, going home with the gold trophy six out of the last eight
times. The Americans have lost only once at home dating to 1999, in 2004 at
Oakland Hills, which was set up like a major with thick rough and narrow
fairways. They had eight players among the top 20 in the world, but Europe
trounced them, 18 1/2-9 1/2. Love said limited rough and quick greens should
benefit the U.S. team, and made it more enjoyable for spectators. “Weve set it
up the way we think fans will like it,” Love said. “People probably dont believe
that, but we set it up so that its fun to watch. You dont want to see players
chipping out and putting for par at the Ryder Cup. You want to see birdies. You
want to see excitement. TV is going to like it. We had four players up there in
the last week, and they loved it.” Europe, however, has its share of big hitters
in Rory McIlroy, Nicolas Colsaerts, Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood. There were
reports that the first cut, typically a yard wide, had been extended as many as
seven paces, and Westwood only shrugged when told about that. “Ive yet to see a
setup that favours one team or the other,” Westwood said two weeks ago at
Crooked Stick. “You can play on a field thats 200 yards wide. Its who holes the
most putts.” The PGA Tour typically plays on faster greens than in Europe, which
would seeem to favour the Americans. Junior Seau Jersey. Then again, Europe has
eight players on its 12-man team who have some form of PGA Tour membership this
year. “They putt better than us, it seems like, in the Ryder Cup,” Love said.
“Thats why Im excited going in this year that our guys seem to be putting well,
playing well. Theres a reason we picked guys that were hot with the putter.” He
used two of his four captains picks on Stricker and Brandt Snedeker. Love spent
Monday promoting the McGladrey Classic at Sea Island, where he is the tournament
host. He did a series of television interviews leading up to the Ryder Cup, and
then said he would spend the rest of the week working on his pairings. He said
he planned a dinner Saturday night in Atlanta during the Tour Championship in
which his 12 players would have a good idea who their partners were going to be.
He again mentioned likely pairings of Stricker and Tiger Woods, Bradley and
Phil Mickelson, and Masters champion Bubba Watson with U.S. Open champion
Webb Simpson, and that his plan going into the week would not change unless the
partnerships werent working. His biggest issue was figuring out which four
players would sit out in the four sessions leading to Sunday singles matches.
There have been more big tournaments leading up to the Ryder Cup than ever
before, which caused two players — Jason Dufner and Sergio Garcia — to skip
FedEx Cup playoff events leading to the Sept. 28-30 matches. Love said no one
should be surprised if some of the biggest stars dont play all five matches.
“Weve got some guys who early in their career — Tiger and Phil — started out in
their first Ryder Cup needing and wanting to play five,” Love said. “Now that
theyve played a few, they understand that four matches in two days will wear you
out for singles, and Sunday singles has 12 points. Everybody needs to have a
winning record, and its whatever works best. “What we normally do is play once a
day,” he said. “With the intensity and pressure of the Ryder Cup, you go in for
your first one begging for five (matches), and you go into your third or fourth
one begging for four or three. What Im seeing from a lot of our guys is, Play me
in the right situations. Let me go out and rest and support the team at least
once.” ’ ’ ’
