GUIDONIA MONTECELIO, Italy (AP) What must have seemed like a long time to the Americans back then surely doesn't now. They beat Europe on its home turf at The Belfry in 1993, winning the Ryder Cup back to back for the first time in a whopping 10 years.

Turns out that wasn't the end of Europe's run. It was only the start.

The Americans now have gone 30 years without winning the Ryder Cup away from home, a losing streak the entire team knows all too well. Never mind that five players on the U.S. team that arrived Monday in Italy were not even born when Team USA last won in Europe.
