ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) Chris Kirk had a five-week break that featured no Ryder Cup and no complaints. Considering the Americans' ugly loss at Gleneagles and the resulting fallout, it was probably a good one to miss.
"It didn't look like a whole lot of fun over there, did it?" Kirk said with a smile.
Kirk was left off the Ryder Cup team despite two victories, including a win at the Deutsche Bank Championship a day before U.S. captain Tom Watson announced his three picks. Kirk didn't argue with Watson's choices in the weeks that followed. He figured it was his own fault for not qualifying.
