Jim Furyk, Rory McIlroy see bright spot in American spat over Ryder Cup

Jim Furyk says it's time for the Americans to look at the long term when it comes to the Ryder Cup and try to regain their previous dominance.

Furyk and Rory McIlroy both said Monday at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf that the public fallout from another American loss in the Ryder Cup last month could be helpful. Europe now has won eight of the last 10 times.

In the weeks since the loss, various reports have painted an ugly picture of U.S. captain Tom Watson's heavy-handed style.

The PGA of America is responsible for choosing the captain. It is putting together a task force to look at how America approaches the matches.
