The last two players named to the U.S. Ryder Cup team rank 52d and 66th on the PGA money list this year. Together, they've missed the cut in eight of 14 tournaments since May. Both 39, they're considered to be on the downsides of their careers. But Ray Floyd, the team captain, who announced their additions yesterday, feels there is no substitute for experience in the emotional international matches - especially on foreign soil. And that is why he chose Tom Watson and Lanny Wadkins to complete the team that will try to wrest the Ryder Cup away from Europe next month in England.

The Ryder Cup used to be a small, quiet garden party that gave the United States an excuse to beat up on a team of golf professionals from Britain every two years while American fans yawned. Now, however, the Ryder Cup, which has been in existence since 1927, has grown in stature to become the major international team golf competition. Golfers throughout Europe became eligible to join the British delegation in 1979, and the Europeans won the Ryder Cup in 1985 and retained it in 1987 and 1989.

When the PGA Championship began, 14 golfers still had a mathematical chance to qualify for the final four automatic berths on the 12-man U.S. Ryder Cup team. But in the jockeying for position at Crooked Stick Golf Club, only one spot wound up changing hands. Steve Pate, by virtue of getting into a five-way tie for sixth place (he shot 69 yesterday, for a 4-under-par total of 284), moved up one notch to edge out Tim Simpson, who missed the 36-hole cut, and claim the final position in the points standings, which have been accumulating since January 1990.

Jeff Maggert had the right idea. Though he knew he needed to finish eighth in the PGA Championship to make the U.S. Ryder Cup team, he drove all Ryder Cup thoughts out of his head yesterday and just played. Did he ever. He equaled the one-day-old competitive course record at Winged Foot Golf Club with a 5-under-par 65, jumped to third place in the final PGA standings, and earned a Ryder Cup berth for the second straight time. "It's been a tough week," Maggert said. "I was pretty mad at myself about the way I finished [Saturday]

The U.S. Ryder Cup team took the hardware, but the three days of golf matches played over the Ocean Course transcended winning and losing. Consider that U.S. team captain Dave Stockton worked more diligently than any of his predecessors in getting 12 millionaires to think together as a team. And he saw his selection of wild-card picks Raymond Floyd and Chip Beck justified. Paul Azinger and Fred Couples, the U.S. answer to fire and ice, showed rather definitively that they are the next legitimate superstars on the PGA tour.

The United States and Europe tied at 14-14 in the Ryder Cup matches yesterday, enabling Europe to retain the trophy and leaving both captains and both teams with feelings of relief. Each team had a chance to win outright at The Belfry. Four Americans lost matches at the final hole, where the golfers had to clear water on their tee shots and approach shots. However, after Jose-Maria Canizares of Spain secured at least a draw for the Europeans with a 1-up victory over Ken Green, the American side won the last four matches, with the victories by Mark McCumber, Tom Watson, Lanny Wadkins and Curtis Strange preventing Europe from winning the competition for the third straight time.

An outstanding performance by the team of Nick Faldo and Ian Woosnam helped Europe expand its lead to five points over a struggling United States team yesterday going into the final round of the Ryder Cup Matches at Dublin, Ohio. The Europeans, seeking their first victory on American soil in the biennial matches that began in 1927, took their largest lead ever, 10 1/2-5 1/ 2, in the matches held at Muirfield Village Golf Club. They now need only four points from today's 12 singles matches, each worth one point, to make a successful defense of the Cup they won in 1985 in Britain.

MEDINAH, Ill. - The question used to come up every other year when the Americans began looking ahead to the Ryder Cup. "Who's their Peter Baker?" Europe always had at least one player the Americans didn't know anything about until losing to him. Baker played in only one Ryder Cup, going 3-1 in 1993 and winning a singles match against Corey Pavin, one of the toughest golfers to beat in match play. Those days are gone. As golf has expanded its borders, the Ryder Cup no longer has any mystery guests.

Curtis Strange had come to the point as captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team that he dreaded - notifying those he had not selected for the final two slots on the team. He thought, however, that he would have a little fun with one of those he did pick, Paul Azinger, before announcing yesterday that Azinger and Scott Verplank would fill out the 12-man team that will compete against Europe next month. "When the [PGA Championship] tournament was over [Sunday], I knew exactly what I was going to do," Strange said yesterday during a news conference at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

THE INTERNATIONAL golf insanity begins Friday, known as the Ryder Cup, despite its lack of affiliation with any truck rental company. Its namesake, who began as a discount seed distributor, would be delighted to see that the competition has outgrown its charter; that is, to promote golf intercontinentally. He also likely would be alarmed to see how little the essence of the competition has changed since its charter was fulfilled. Samuel Ryder got his name on the Cup because he was a major sponsor of the competitions, which, generally, were money-losers in the "BT" (Before Tiger)

U.S. captain Tom Watson said he would be foolish not to consider Tiger Woods as one of his three wild-card selections for the Ryder Cup, a decision that ultimately would be based on Woods' words instead of his actions. Watson has said all year he wanted Woods on his team if he was healthy and playing well. Even though Woods is injured and not playing for the next month, Watson wouldn't rule him out Monday. "I can't assess his medical condition and I honestly can't assess how he's playing," Watson said.

AKRON, Ohio - Tiger Woods showed signs of a positive recovery Thursday at the Bridgestone Invitational. Not just from back surgery, but from making bogeys. Woods bounced back with birdies all three times that he made mistakes, opening with a 2-under 68 on a soft, gentle day for scoring at Firestone. It left him 4 shots behind Marc Leishman of Australia and hopeful that this time he can build on a solid start. Woods opened with a 69 at the British Open two weeks ago, only to plunge down the leader board the rest of the week at Royal Liverpool.

THE PGA Championship counts the same as the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open. It just doesn't seem that way. Because, well, it's generally viewed as being fourth in the grand-slam pecking order. Just don't try selling that to five-time champion Jack Nicklaus, who I'm sure treasures those Wanamaker Trophies every bit as much as his other 13 major titles. Still . . . The Masters has the green jacket, and returns to the same TV-friendly venue every April. The U.S. Open is the national championship, and is the toughest tournament to win. The British Open is the oldest championship, and the one the rest of the world reveres most.

SIMON KHAN bounced back from losing the BMW PGA Championship in a playoff to qualify for the U.S. Open. The Englishman, who lost a four-hole playoff to Matteo Manassero at Wentworth on Sunday, qualified in first place yesterday by shooting a 5-under 67 on the Old Course and 2-under 70 on the New Course in Walton Heath, England. "[Sunday] I did everything I could to try and win. I don't think I could have done anything differently," said Khan, who has reached the U.S. Open three times in 8 straight years of qualifying.

Ken Venturi, who overcame dehydration to win the 1964 U.S. Open and spent 35 years in the booth for CBS Sports, died Friday afternoon. He was 82. His son, Matt Venturi, said he died in a hospital in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mr. Venturi had been hospitalized the last two months for a spinal infection, pneumonia, and then an intestinal infection that he could no longer fight.

IRVING, Texas - Keegan Bradley shot a 10-under-par 60 to lead the field in the opening round of the Byron Nelson Championship on Thursday. Bradley broke the TPC Four Seasons course record and matched the best round ever in the Nelson. He equaled Phil Mickelson's opening 60 at Phoenix as the best round on the tour this season. Charl Schwartzel was 3 strokes back, Robert Karlsson, Harris English and Ted Potter Jr. shot 64, and two-time major champion Angel Cabrera, Ryan Palmer, and Camilo Villegas were at 65. Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old amateur from China, shot 70 in his second tournament since making the cut at the Masters.

Every new year in golf is shrouded in mystery like the clouds over Molokai across the channel from Kapalua, Hawaii, where the PGA Tour gets under way with the Tournament of Champions on Friday. Here's what to look for in the new season: European captain. The Americans went back in time by picking Tom Watson as Ryder Cup captain. Does that mean Europe needs to answer with a larger-than-life figure for its captain? There have been suggestions that Colin Montgomerie would return over Darren Clarke or Paul McGinley.

Tiger Woods will consider the possibility of joining the European Tour after changes are made to membership qualification. The European Tour is expected to announce soon that participation in the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, and Seve Trophy will count toward the 13 events needed for tour membership. Woods said he last looked into joining the European Tour in 2000, when the requirement was 11 events. Woods would be only two or three events short of the 13 if the list includes the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, four majors, four World Golf Championship events, and appearances in either Abu Dhabi or Dubai.

ROGER FEDERER ignored recent death threats from a Chinese blogger and won his opening match at the Shanghai Masters on Wednesday, beating qualifier Lu Yen-Hsun , 6-3, 7-5, in the second round. Federer said he was aware that the blogger recently had issued an apology. The 17-time Grand Slam champion has had heavy security surrounding him at all times since arriving in Shanghai. "I felt fine," Federer said. "There was maybe one quick thought. I saw one of the bodyguards outside of the court.
