Mickelson promises prepared US team at Ryder Cup

Cabrera Bello isn't expecting to be paired with compatriot Sergio Garcia all the time

Mickelson does have enormous confidence in 23-year-old Jordan Spieth as that leadership role on the Ryder Cup team is passed down. I don't know if you can imagine how frustrating it would be to care so much about something like I do about the Ryder Cup and be accountable for numerous decisions that have taken place when you're not a part of those decisions, and that's what I'm talking about, ownership. Yet within days of the start of the 41st Ryder Cup, Willett has stirred controversy with an article saying that Europe "need to silence the pudgy, basement-dwelling, irritants, stuffed on cookie dough and pissy beer, pausing between mouthfuls of hot dog so they can scream "Baba booey" until their jelly faces turn red". I felt like the world of golf would be better off if Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson became friends, and I felt like if they played together, had fun and beat somebody, they would end up being friends. "I have full belief in all those rookies".

"Played a number of practice rounds and enjoyed the time where I get to pick his brain".

The duo, who have appeared in six Ryder Cups between them, will take on Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed in what is sure to be an extremely competitive affair. "Seve with his charisma, his game, his playing partner Ollie, hey, it's definitely very inspiring", Bello said.

What Mickelson failed to mention this week, though, was that he had just switched equipment companies right before the Ryder Cup, something that may have been as much to blame for his bad play as having to play an unfamiliar ball.

"Every time I looked at this line-up, I just got more and more excited about all four matches".

There's no lack of drama in a Ryder Cup. "This has always been part of what I've been thinking". "This is my 11th season as a pro", he said. I don't feel so inexperienced. I made him feel unfortunately awkward and I'm really, really sorry about that.

"Instead, I'm taking four or five hours and I'm out trying to learn another ball to allow us to play our best. I'm glad those memories and experiences are helping me to stay calm and relaxed this week".

"It's a big golf course, everything about it is big", the 72-year-old Englishman told Reuters in an interview on the practice range as he prepared to play in the eve-of-competition Past Captains Challenge. Mickelson says he was in the wrong and shouldn't have brought that up.

"If these things happen, Europe will win, and I'll try to support gracefully by embracing the same sense of fair-mindedness that has permeated this unbiased article".

Quoteworthy: "I'm expecting it to be loud". "It would be an honor to play with Sergio". I probably shouldn't tell Davis that, but he will be playing tomorrow afternoon, and he will be rested come Sunday for the singles.

"You may have your pairings, but you also have a few different ones in the back of your mind as well", Clarke said. "I handled the pressure pretty good in delivering in those three weeks, and that only gives me confidence going forward".

"This is. one of the first years [the players have been given a say]".

"Phil is, I think, kind of the backbone of the team", Love said. Wins at the 2015 British Masters and last June's Nordea Masters put Fitzpatrick at Hazeltine with his idols.

Henrik Stenson, the Swede who now calls Florida home, said the weather has reminded him of the 2014 tournament in Gleneagles, Scotland. "Now I'm playing in the same team with them".
