    Johnny Miller didn’t mince words on Saturday in describing what he thought of the Darren Clarke’s European Ryder Cup team.

    “I do believe the Euros have got, at least on paper, the worst team they’ve had in many years,” Miller said Saturday at the Tour Championship.

    Europe is looking for a fourth consecutive win and its ninth win in 11 tries in the biennial series. However, they’ve fielded a team with six rookies, five that qualified, including Masters champion Danny Willett, and the sixth being Belgian Thomas Pieters, added with one of Clarke’s three wild-card picks. The other rookies are Andy Sullivan, Matt Fitzpatrick, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Chris Wood.

    Miller seems to believe all that fresh blood, particularly on a road game in the United States at Hazeltine National, will work against the Europeans.

    “I just think with all those rookies … when you lose (Ian) Poulter, it’s like tearing your heart out,” Miller said. “I think this is the year not only could the U.S. win, they could win by like five points.”
