2012 Ryder Cup will be no 'War by the Shore'

The Ryder Cup isn't a war or a grudge match and has become more kind and gentle over the years. Ian Poulter, however, is shaking things up again.


Davis Love III selects makes Ryder Cup selections

2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III has added four players to the Team USA roster. Dustin Johnson, Jim Furyk, Brandt Snedeker, and Steve Stricker will be representing their country against golfers from Europe on Sept. 28-30 at Medinah Country Club.

The new members will join Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, and Phil Mickelson on the American squad.

Team Europe, captained by Jose Maria Olazabal, will feature Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Paul Lawrie, Graeme McDowell, Francesco Molinari, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia, Peter Hanson, Martin Kaymer, Nicolas Colsaerts, and Ian Poulter.

The Europeans are the defending champions in the event, after taking the title in 2010 at Celtic Manor Resort in Wales. That year, they had to fend off a comeback from the Americans to come out on top.

The U.S. last won in 2008. Europe has won four of the last five Ryder Cups.
