By Mark Lamport-Stokes CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) – Neutral observers are rare when it comes to the Ryder Cup, one of the most highly charged occasions in sport, but most would agree Sunday’s win by the United States gave the team competition a timely jolt. Under considerable pressure to avoid a fourth successive loss to Europe, a much more team-oriented American lineup displayed brilliant golf over the three days at Hazeltine, with a fired-up Patrick Reed their very visible on-course heartbeat. U.S. captain Davis Love III took a leaf or two out of triumphant 2008 skipper Paul Azinger’s play book with great success as the team also benefited from a complete overhaul, from top to bottom, of their entire Ryder Cup system.
