The relationship between Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy has changed off the course and in the Ryder Cup.

When Jordan Spieth helped the United States win the Junior Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in 2010, he knew he'd have little chance to play in the real thing on the same course four years later.

Paul McGinley is not trying to reinvent the wheel at the Ryder Cup. He just wants to keep Europe rolling.

Ryder Cup was not held in 2001 due to the tragedies of September 11.

Top Contenders

NOTES: All eyes will be on Scotland this week, as the 40th Ryder Cup matches will be staged at the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles Resort. Team USA will be led by captain Tom Watson, while the Europeans have Paul McGinley at the helm. The European team currently owns the Cup thanks to a 14 1/2 - 13 1/2 win at Medinah Country Club in Illinois in 2012. The European team has dominated this event in recent years, winning seven of the last nine Ryder Cups.

All Times EDT

Two years after the "Miracle of Medinah," it's not just the Americans seeking redemption at the Ryder Cup.

Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk are the veterans on the U.S. Ryder Cup team, having played 19 Cups combined. A key to their success this week at Gleneagles will be their playing partners.

Jim Furyk is the only player in the last 25 years to experience both ends of emotion in that moment the Ryder Cup is over. He knows how empty it feels to lose the decisive game. And he has been soaked in a celebration of champagne.

The secret is out — Alex Ferguson will deliver a motivational speech to the Europe team ahead of the Ryder Cup in his native Scotland.

Thomas Bjorn has been a strong presence for Europe in the Ryder Cup, part of five winning teams. So it was not unusual to see him at Gleneagles dressed in uniform.

Plucking two scarcely believable shots from the cactus for par saves in the Match Play Championship final in February thrust Victor Dubuisson into golf's global consciousness.

The induction ceremony for the World Golf Hall of Fame will rotate to new places for two of the next three ceremonies the hall announced on Monday.

Mi Jung Hur set a 72-hole scoring record at last week's Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic to earn a 4-shot victory, and that win propelled her up 29 spots to No. 65 in this week's world rankings.

The Europeans had a flare for the dramatic last year as they stormed back from four points deficit on the final day to win 14 1/2 - 13 1/2. Europe won 8 1/2 out of the 12 possible points on Sunday to complete an incredible comeback.

Ryder Cup was not held in 2001 due to the tragedies of September 11.

Top Contenders

NOTES: All eyes will be on Scotland next week, as the 40th Ryder Cup matches will be staged at the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles Resort. Team USA will be led by captain Tom Watson, while the Europeans have Paul McGinley at the helm. The European team currently owns the Cup thanks to a 14 1/2 - 13 1/2 win at Medinah Country Club in Illinois in 2012. The European team has dominated this event in recent years, winning seven of the last nine Ryder Cups.

European captain Paul McGinley is having second thoughts about a Rory McIlroy-Graeme McDowell partnership in the Ryder Cup.

Guys like Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter are virtually unstoppable every two years when the Ryder Cup rolls around. Those two have a combined record of 28-11-4 in their 10 Ryder Cups.
