And there’s no bigger pressure situation than the Ryder Cup. And that’s when he’s at his best.”

  • Snedeker to get early baptism in Ryder Cup Sep 27, 2012 7:05 PM

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."
