    Like any Ryder Cup captain, Davis Love III has endured his share of second guessing, but the results speak for themselves. His rookies, led by Keegan Bradley, have combined to go 8-3, and Tiger Woods responded to his first Cup benching by cranking it up on the back nine Saturday afternoon in one of the most exciting matches of the weekend in front of 40,000 festive fans at Medinah Country Club . But most important for Love, the U.S squad followed up a great start on Friday with another dominant performance Saturday to take an overwhelming 10-6 lead over the Team Europe heading into today’s singles matches.

    Davis Love III sent out his hottest player. Jose Maria Olazabal went with his strongest teams. The Ryder Cup captains had the same objectives Thursday when they announced their teams for the opening sessions at Medinah. Win points, the sooner the better. "We have to go for it," Olazabal said. "I know we are playing away. The crowds are going to be on their side. They set up the course to their liking. At the end of the day, you have to make a bunch of birdies out there to win points."

And who better to pass that along than his late friend, Harvey Penick, the man whom his father learned the game from?
