Ryder Cup arrives back home
In the headquarters at Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., chief executive Joe Steranka officially took possession of the trophy today.
U.S captain Paul Azinger wasn’t on hand, but Steranka thanked him anyway for the 16 ½ - 11 ½ victory over Europe on Sunday at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.
"There was nobody more integral and central to the U.S. victory than our Ryder Cup Captain, Paul Azinger," said Steranka, who led a toast to the team.
The U.S. last won the Ryder Cup in 1999.
