The biggest problem when the U.S. Ryder Cup team captains convened in a room each day to discuss the next round of action?

There wasn’t a weak link.

In a decisive victory, the U.S. topped Europe at Whistling Straits, 19-9, that’s the largest margin of victory since all of Europe joined the Ryder Cup in 1979. After two decades of being pummeled by Europe, the U.S. has now won two of the last three matches.

Golfweek’s Adam Schupak chatted with U.S. Ryder Cup vice captain Jim Furyk about the team’s recent victory at Whistling Straits.

“It was hard to figure out how we were going to sit four guys,” Furyk said. “It was just a super-talented team and we had a bunch of guys playing well. Not one vice captain ever walked in that room and said, you know what, I think we need to rest this guy because he’s struggling.

“Those are champagne problems, right? When you have those problems, it makes for a great team.”
