ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Georgia (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Chris Kirk had a five-week break that featured no Ryder Cup and no complaints. Considering the Americans’ ugly loss at Gleneagles and the resulting fallout, it was probably a good one to miss.

“It didn’t look like a whole lot of fun over there, did it?” Kirk said with a smile.

Kirk was left off the Ryder Cup team despite two victories, including a win at the Deutsche Bank Championship a day before U.S. captain Tom Watson announced his three picks. Kirk didn’t argue with Watson’s choices in the weeks that followed. He figured it was his own fault for not qualifying.

Dru Love was still able to do one drill while his broken right wrist was healing earlier this year. It was passed down through the generations, from his late grandfather, the famed instructor, to his dad, the major champion and future World Golf Hall of Famer.

Dru hit balls with only his left hand, a drill that ingrains the proper impact position. His father, Davis Love III, used to hit buckets of balls a day this way while watching his father, Davis Love Jr., give lessons.
