ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III feels so good about the American team that he said Friday it might be the best ever.
Love was speaking on Sirius/XM’s “Fairways of Life” when he said the Americans at times try too hard to win the Ryder Cup. Love said they don’t have to do anything “superhuman.”
He said: “We’re a great team. This is the best golf team maybe ever.”
The 1981 Ryder Cup team that beat Europe, 18 1/2 to 9 1/2 is regarded as the best in U.S. history. It featured Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Ray Floyd, Hale Irwin and Johnny Miller. Only one of the 12 players — Bruce Lietkze — never won a major.
Europe goes for its fourth straight victory next week at Hazeltine in Chaska.
