USA wins Junior Ryder Cup


GLENEAGLES, United Kingdom: The United States defeated Europe 16-8 on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in the Junior Ryder Cup, three days ahead of the senior version of the tournament getting started. Victory for the Americans at Blairgowrie Golf Club was sealed when Amy Lee secured a 6 and 5 win over Germany’s Alex Forsterling. Brian Whitcomb’s American charges entered the final day with a 7 1/2 to 4 1/2 lead, and while there was an early move by the European team, it was quickly snuffed out and the US team ran out as comfortable winners. It was a fourth straight win for the Americans in the mixed-sex contest.
