ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Eight years ago as the Ryder Cup qualifying was ending, 10 of the top 20 players in the U.S. standings were either in the same group or in a group with captain Tom Lehman. It looked as if it was rigged, though the PGA Tour promised it was done by computer and merely a coincidence.
"The computer doesn't know the difference between the Ryder Cup and a coffee cup," top rules official Slugger White said then.
That isn't the case in Europe.
