  • Rose, Stenson will be valuable players for young Europe team

    Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson are just the type of tandem for the team to turn to. "We hit the ball a very similar distance, so we can work off one another from that point of view," Rose said. It's a team of four that feel comfortable together," said Rose, who played with Stenson at the last Ryder Cup for two four-ball matches and one foursome match in Gleneagles, Scotland. More »
