ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III feels so good about the American team that he said Friday it might be the best ever.
Love was speaking on Sirius/XM's ''Fairways of Life'' when he said the Americans at times try too hard to win the Ryder Cup. Love said they don't have to do anything ''superhuman.''
He said: ''We're a great team. This is the best golf team maybe ever.''
The 1981 Ryder Cup team that beat Europe, 18 1/2 to 9 1/2 is regarded as the best in U.S. history. It featured Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Ray Floyd, Hale Irwin and Johnny Miller. Only one of the 12 players - Bruce Lietkze - never won a major.
Europe goes for its fourth straight victory next week at Hazeltine in Minnesota.
