• Palmer ‘watching over’ US team in Ryder Cup triumph


    CHASKA, United States: Arnold Palmer did not live to see the 41st Ryder Cup, but US captain Davis Love said he was still looking out for the Americans in Sunday’s 17-11 victory over Europe. “Arnold was watching over us this week,” Love said. The golf icon, who played on six triumphant US Ryder Cup teams and twice captained Cup winners, died last Sunday at age 87 as players prepared to gather at Hazeltine. US players won seven of 12 singles matches Sunday to complete the victory and snap a three-Cup losing streak. “This week has been played under the shadow of Mr. Palmer’s passing,” Europe captain Darren Clarke said in the closing ceremony. “But I’m sure he is up there looking down on us all with a smile on his face.”
