  • Memories of Seve behind Olazabal’s competitive spirit Sep 26, 2012 8:17 PM
    Though Jose Maria Olazabal won two Masters titles, his career worldwide is best defined by the things he did with Seve Ballesteros at his side. They formed the most successful partnership in Ryder Cup history, going 11-2-2 in matches they played together. It's the competitive spirit they had together that Olazabal hopes to create as captain at this 39th Ryder Cup, and the team's golf bag tribute to Ballesteros underscores that. "He was a great figure, not just for myself but for the whole European squad every year that he played," said Olazabal. "We are going to miss him a lot. He was a special man."

  • Rory McIlroy a marked man at Ryder Cup Sep 26, 2012 8:29 PM
    There's a new sheriff in town this week at Medinah Country Club and he goes by the name of Rory McIlroy. Four victories in 2012, including the PGA Championship and a pair of wins during the FedEx Cup playoffs, plus coming into the week as the world's No. 1 ranked golfer will do that to a guy. "This week I'm not the No. 1 player in the world; I'm one person on a 12-man team, and that's it," McIlroy said Wednesday morning.

  • US Ryder Cup rookies have a wealth of experience Sep 26, 2012 7:25 PM
    U.S. captain Davis Love considers Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner, Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker Ryder Cup rookies in name only. "They may be rookies here at the Ryder Cup, but they're major championship winners, they're FedExCup winners," Love said. "They're veterans that are playing in their first Ryder Cup. "They've done a lot and played a lot of great golf. They're really comfortable, confident guys."

  • Chicago’s golf history runs long and deep Sep 26, 2012 1:03 PM
    Given their global impact, this week's 39th Ryder Cup matches at Medinah Country Club may be the biggest sports event ever in the Chicago area. Without question it'll be the biggest golf event — and that's saying a lot. Chicago, and its suburbs, may well have the richest golf history of any city in the country. Len Ziehm, who has covered golf here for more than 40 years, looks back on Chicago's rich history with the game.

  • Love’s nature perfect to be U.S. captain Sep 26, 2012 8:28 PM
    The more you listen to, talk with and watch Davis Love III in action, the more you come to one conclusion: the guy was born to be a Ryder Cup captain. From his background, literally born into golf as the son of the late club pro Davis Love Jr., to his love of the history of the game. And who better to pass that along than his late friend, Harvey Penick, the man whom his father learned the game from?

  • Big hitters might back off on Medinah’s 15th hole Sep 26, 2012 7:32 PM
    Much of the talk concerning the recent renovation at Medinah centered around the redesigned, now-driveable Par 4 15th hole, which, it was hoped, would lure players into pulling out their drivers and going for it. Doesn't sound like that's going to happen too often, at least in the opinion of Phil Mickelson.

  • Quick start crucial to winning Ryder Cup Sep 28, 2012 7:42 AM
    The Super Bowl of golf is nearly here, the first practice only hours away and Team USA is looking at a significant home-course advantage. The U.S. is favored to win even though Europe has taken nine of the last 13 Ryder Cups after winning in Wales by a point in 2010. So does Medinah offer the U.S. a 1-point advantage? Definitely. But will it be enough to overcome Team USA's competitive issues? Maybe.

  • Tiger feels at home with Ryder Cup in Chicago Sep 28, 2012 7:41 AM
    With five wins at Cog Hill and a pair of PGA Championships at Medinah, Chicago has been a special place for Tiger Woods the last 15 years. Maybe that will turn Woods’ fortunes in the Ryder Cup. To this point, the U.S. has gone 2-5 vs. Europe during the Woods era — and he missed the victory in 2008 at Valhalla after knee surgery. Wood’s only experience with a Team USA win was in the “Battle at Brookline,’’ where the U.S. mounted a miraculous Sunday rally.

  • Medinah chef eager to feed golf’s elite during Ryder Cup week Sep 25, 2012 3:53 PM
    Medinah Country Club Executive Chef Bryan Panico has been planning for a year to feed the U.S. and European teams and their families, PGA officials and guests and high-end corporate sponsors during the Ryder Cup. Here's how he'll do it -- and some of the recipes he created.

  • European team paying tribute to Ballesteros Sep 25, 2012 7:06 PM
    To say it’s been a crazy month for Sweden’s Peter Hanson doesn’t do justice to the word crazy. It began at the KLM Open in Holland when Hanson found out that his 1-year-old son Tim had been hospitalized with a respiratory virus back in Florida. Hanson was all ready to fly home, but his wife convinced him to stay, and as luck would have it, the 34-year-old ended up winning the tournament, his first victory in two years.

  • Europe’s Donald feels quite at home in Chicago Sep 25, 2012 7:06 PM
    It’s difficult to imagine Luke Donald drawing hecklers when the 39th Ryder Cup matches tee off on Friday at Medinah Country Club. But it could happen. A former NCAA champion for Northwestern, Donald has been a class act since establishing residence in Chicago 15 years ago. This week, though, U.S. golf fans will view Donald as part of the enemy. He’s a key member of the 12-man European team that will try to beat the U.S. in the biennial competition for the fifth time in six tries.

  • Medinah offers Team USA big Ryder Cup edge Sep 25, 2012 7:07 PM
    Players on both teams are aware of how loud Medinah will be over the weekend if Team USA starts making putts. “This is a great sporting town to begin with, and they obviously have supported the Cubs, White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks, you name it,” Tiger Woods said.“They just love sport, period.

  • Ex-Europe player Feherty will root for US at Ryder Cup Sep 25, 2012 3:15 PM
    The Americans wasted no time taking one from Europeans. Golf funny man David Feherty said he’ll be rooting for the U.S. when the Ryder Cup tees off Friday morning. Never mind that Feherty is from Northern Ireland, played for Europe at the 1991 Ryder Cup and still counts Sam Torrance as his “BFF.” “To be honest, I’ve been leaning in that direction for quite a while now,” Feherty said Tuesday during a conference call.

  • Tents of the rich and famous line Ryder Cup course Sep 25, 2012 2:58 PM
    Bleachers are available throughout the Medinah Country Club grounds for this week's Ryder Cup action, but your best chance to get a great view is to be a member of the 1 percent or be someone who is really appreciated by the boss. The elite of the elite will be watching the action, drink and food in hand, from any of the record 76 sold-out luxury chalets strategically placed on the course.

  • Our Ryder Cup team breaks down the challenge Sep 24, 2012 12:51 PM
    From the course to the teams to who will ultimately be crowned 39th Ryder Cup champion, four of the Daily Herald's golf writers break it down as golf's biggest even nears.

  • Ryder Cup prep turned into battle against nature Sep 24, 2012 5:10 PM
    The Ryder Cup at Medinah has been nearly five years in the making for course officials. With years of preparation in the bank, one of the hottest, driest summers in memory in the final months turned the creation of a championship course into a battle against Mother Nature.

  • Ryder Cup gate and shuttle hours Sep 24, 2012 6:33 PM
    Here are opening and closing times for the 39th Ryder Cup, as well as shuttle transportation times for spectators:

  • Medinah’s storied past adds to allure Sep 23, 2012 8:00 AM
    Calvin Koeppel says he's been fortunate to witness golfing history unfold as a longtime member of Medinah Country Club. The 54-hole complex in northern DuPage County has been the site of national tournaments and major championships through the years. This week, the best professional golfers from Europe and the United States square off in the 2012 Ryder Cup. "When you join here, you don't just join a country club," Koeppel said. "You join a historic country club."

  • Shoppers score Ryder Cup gear, glimpse of course at Medinah pre-sale Sep 22, 2012 4:23 PM
    For those who don't have a ticket to next week's Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club, the public pre-sale Saturday offered a way in. Volunteers working the course throughout the week got a chance to grab gear like polo shirts, sweatshirts, umbrellas, hats and towels before all the prime picks are sold out. "I know a lot of the good stuff sells out early," Pam Hynes of Naperville said. "I learned if you see it, buy it."

  • As a sports draw, Ryder Cup a major factor Sep 22, 2012 4:53 PM
    The Ryder Cup is often called the Super Bowl of golf, but don't go comparing it to the NFL championship game, at least as far as Las Vegas experts are concerned. Nothing tops the Super Bowl, but the Ryder Cup compares favorable other golf majors, NBA Finals, and the Stanley Cup Finals. And the Ryder Cup also does quite well with other factors such as star attractions, entertainment events, box office power, television pull and more.
