Back then, and in the late 1980s when Europe finally began to chalk up some Ryder Cup wins after decades of total U.S. domination, it still felt like something of a surprise to see the slick product of the PGA of America brought down by their country cousins.The U.S. had the best of the fourballs but were crushed by an aggregate 7-1 in foursomes and were also beaten in the singles.However, when nine-time Ryder Cup veteran Jim Furyk was asked if he could explain the losing streak, he maybe unwittingly revealed the individualism that generally characterizes the most successful golfers is still too prevalent in the U.S. team.The last time the U.S. won the Ryder Cup, under Paul Azinger in 2008, they employed a "pod" system where three groups of four players spent a lot of time together on and off the course and it certainly seemed to develop good spirit.
