ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (Steve Douglas/AP) — Forget the majors, forget an Olympic gold medal: Jordan Spieth’s big goal in 2016 is winning the Ryder Cup with the United States.

“We’re tired of hearing about changes that need to be made. We’re tired of hearing about the past,” the top-ranked Spieth said Wednesday, adopting a fierce tone. “And we’re ready to believe in a younger, more hungry team going forward.”

The European team has won eight of the past 10 editions of the Ryder Cup, and will defend the cup at Hazeltine in September for a third straight time after winning 16½-11½ at Gleneagles in 2014.

Since then, the Americans have appointed Davis Love III for a second stint as captain and created a so-called “task force” to take a closer look at where the team has been going wrong.

SHANGHAI, China (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Russell Knox was the center of attention after winning the HSBC Champions, and not just with the sponsors.

After his press conference, he posed with four flight attendants from Emirates Airlines. Next up was a photo with the owner and executive staff of Casillero del Diablo, which supplied the wine for the week.

When he sat back down to sign flags and caps for HSBC, another man approached whom Knox did not recognize.

“Hello, Russell. I’m Keith Waters with the European Tour.”

Waters is the chief operating officer, and he was equipped with all the answers Knox did not know and was too overwhelmed to ask at the moment — mainly, the process of becoming a European Tour member and how that relates to the Ryder Cup.
