Another chance for USA to turn tide in Ryder Cup

Steve Stricker never felt more alone in front of so many people. All he could do was watch on the 18th green at Medinah two years ago when Martin Kaymer made the best 6-foot putt of his life that won the Ryder Cup for Europe.

What you should take away from 2013

With the new year just a week away, I spent some time thinking about my year in golf.
