By Larry Fine CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - British Open champion Henrik Stenson, bothered late in a brilliant season by a balky right knee, said on Wednesday that he felt fresh after a break from golf and eager to play in this week's Ryder Cup. Asked if he thought he would be able to contest all five sessions at Hazeltine in Europe's quest for a fourth successive Ryder Cup win if needed, Stenson said: "I'd say yes at this stage. "As of now, I feel like I'm up for a lot of golf and unless the knee tells me otherwise, that's the way I approach it." Stenson had a sensational summer run that brought him his first major after a remarkable final-round Open duel with Phil Mickelson at Royal Troon, a seventh-place finish at the PGA Championship, and a silver medal at the Rio Olympics.

Same goes for (vice-captain) Ian Poulter," said Fitzpatrick.

PGA: Ryder Cup Captain's Press Conferences-Europe at USABy Mark Lamport-Stokes CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - Phil Mickelson is known for having a theory about almost anything and he says that the United States have been handicapped at the Ryder Cup over the last two decades by poor preparation. This week at Hazeltine the U.S. will bid to end a run of eight losses to Europe in the past 10 editions and Mickelson is excited about the prospect of a new chapter being established under captain Davis Love III with the players fully engaged. "This is the foundation week for us," Mickelson, who has competed in 10 Ryder Cups, told reporters on Wednesday before heading off for team practice with Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka and Jimmy Walker.
