SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A look at Saturday's matches from the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits:
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Nobody has collected more wins at the Ryder Cup than Sergio Garcia.
Not in history. And, when it comes to his underperforming European teammates, certainly not this week.
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Sergio Garcia blew a kiss to the crowd. Jon Rahm couldn't stop smiling. It was all part of a high-fiving, back-slapping, magic-filled morning for the Ryder Cup's latest iteration of the Spanish Armada.
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — The stubble on his beard matches the color of that small shock of hair near Lee Westwood's temple — gray. Instead of calling him old, Westwood suggests “mature” might be a better way of putting it.
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Friction within the team is nothing new at the Ryder Cup.
Except for the Americans.
Europe has been dealing with it for decades, whether it was the enmity between Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia, the grievances Darren Clarke and Thomas Bjorn had with Colin Montgomerie or the general dislike between Ian Woosnam and Nick Faldo.
Sergio Garcia didn't waste much time making a point on how he values the Ryder Cup.
He was a teenager — at 19, still the youngest player in Ryder Cup history — and just over five months removed from being the low amateur at the Masters, when Garcia and Jesper Parnevik took down Tiger Woods and Tom Lehman in foursomes at Brookline.

Brooks Koepka says in an interview with Golf Digest that Ryder Cup week is hectic and “a bit odd” because it takes him from his individual routine and leaves him no time to decompress.
It was enough to make Paul Azinger wonder if Koepka should even play next week.
