SOUTHAMPTON, Bermuda (Josh Ball/AP) — Jim Furyk thinks it's time for the Americans to think long term about the Ryder Cup.

Furyk and Rory McIlroy both said Monday at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf that the public fallout from another American loss in the Ryder Cup last month at Gleneagles could be helpful. Europe now has won eight of the last 10 times.

The next Ryder Cup is at Hazeltine in 2016, though Furyk said the Americans need to look beyond that.

NAPA, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Lee Westwood was disappointed to see stories from the American team room at the Ryder Cup complaining about Tom Watson as the captain, saying Wednesday those matters should be kept private and "nothing good can come of all this."

Westwood has played in nine Ryder Cups, winning for the seventh time when Europe beat the Americans at Gleneagles two weeks ago.

NAPA, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — For the first two days of the Ryder Cup, only 16 players were on the golf course at the same time.

And they had plenty of company.

The greatest growth in golf might be the number of guests allowed inside the ropes at the Ryder Cup.
