LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Whoever put together the U.S. team's locker room lounge has attempted to get the underdog Americans in a winning state of mind. Mounted on the walls around the plush leather sofas are 12 huge photos, each of a U.S. Ryder Cup player hoisting one of his PGA Tour trophies and grinning triumphantly. There's Chad Campbell at the Viking Classic, J.B. Holmes at the FBR, and so on. It's obviously a ploy to psyche these guys up: you're good enough, you shoot low enough, and gosh darn it, people like you don't lose Ryder Cups by 9 points!
