The Americans have a 7-1-1 record in the Presidents Cup, and it looks even more lopsided on paper.
The field for the 142nd British Open golf championship, which starts Thursday at Muirfield. Players listed in only the first category for which they qualified:
Brett Rumford of Australia shot a 3-under 69 Saturday to lead by one stroke after the third round of the China Open.
The youngest player to compete on the European Tour missed the cut, while Mikko Ilonen of Finland tied the course record with a 9-under 63 Friday for a three-shot lead at the China Open.
Scotland's Paul Lawrie marked the official confirmation of his return to the European Ryder Cup team after 13 years with a resounding four-shot victory in the Johnnie Walker Championship on Sunday.
"Branden just played too good right from the word go," Rumford said. "I started to play well in the middle of the round but just couldn't hole any putts and put pressure back on Branden, so he's seemingly had a nice leisurely walk this morning."
Rumford says "it was a really tough day and a very tiring day, and I really started to feel it on the back nine."
