Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy fired up European passions Tuesday at the Ryder Cup, taking exception to US captain Davis Love's contention that his Americans might be the best team ever. "At the end of the day, you don't win Ryder Cups with your mouth," Garcia said. European teams have won three consecutive Ryder Cups, seeking an unprecedented fourth in a row this week at Hazeltine, while the Americans have lost six of the past seven and eight of 10.
Still-mourning US and European Ryder Cup teams began planning Tuesday to attend Arnold Palmer's memorial service while Sergio Garcia pondered Palmer spiritually joining Seve Ballesteros to watch over them. "I'm sure he will be out there looking down, probably talking to Seve a little bit and seeing who is going to win it," Garcia said, recalling his Spanish compatriot and friend who died in 2011 of brain cancer. Palmer also served as a US captain in 1975.
