The Americans would seem to have a lot in their favor at the Ryder Cup.
They are on home soil at Whistling Straits along the Wisconsin shores of Lake Michigan. A full house is expected, along with louder than usual cheering for the Stars & Stripes because of COVID-19 travel restrictions for European-based fans.
As for the players? Younger than ever, to be sure, but no less stacked. The Americans have eight of the top 10 in the world ranking - Europe only has Jon Rahm at No. 1 - on a team that has won twice as many majors.
