Reliance on rookies pays off for U.S. in Ryder Cup blowout
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — The United States laid waste to the notion that experience is essential to thriving in the Ryder Cup’s glaring spotlight.
The U.S. rolled to a 19-9 victory over Europe with a roster that featured six Ryder Cup rookies. Daniel Berger, Patrick Cantlay, Harris English, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele and Scottie Scheffler posted a combined 14-4-3 record in their Ryder Cup debuts. Cantlay, Morikawa and Scheffler were undefeated.
Scheffler capped his rookie debut with a convincing singles victory over Jon Rahm, the world’s top-ranked player.
