American Mahan seeking Ryder Cup redemption for 2010 - Yahoo Sports 1 hour ago

    The three American Ryder Cup wildcard picks will all be seeking redemption when they travel to Scotland later this month, and none more so than Hunter Mahan. The 32-year-old lost the singles match to Graeme McDowell that clinched the Ryder Cup for Europe in Wales in 2010 - a loss made more painful because Mahan duffed a chip shot at the 17th hole that effectively sealed his fate. "I remember walking off that green and all the fans rushing on to Europe and Graeme and having a big party," Mahan said after being announced by captain Tom Watson as a wildcard selection on Tuesday. I want to get rid of that." Mahan has already been on a winning Ryder Cup team, in 2008, but remembers the 2010 experience more vividly.
