SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) The buzz around Whistling Straits is about big drives, huge throngs of people and a U.S. team so talented it will have to search for ways to throw away this Ryder Cup.

But the Americans' chances of reclaiming the Cup will likely revolve around a pair of young stars who became fast friends long before they became household names.

Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas almost surely will be paired together in both foursomes and fourballs beginning Friday on the shore of Lake Michigan. What they deliver will go a long way toward deciding the Americans' chances of reversing their fortunes in a team event that has not gone their way in recent years.

Poulter delivers come Ryder Cup time

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) The stubble on his beard matches the color of that small shock of hair near Lee Westwood's temple - gray. Instead of calling him old, Westwood suggests "mature" might be a better way of putting it.

Or, you could put it like this: The 48-year-old Englishman is heading into his record-tying 11th Ryder Cup this week. At his first one, in 1997, he partnered with Nick Faldo, who is now 64 and doing TV work. In the leadup to this one, which begins Friday at Whistling Straits, Westwood is mentoring, among others, Viktor Hovland.
