If age and experience mean anything at the Solheim Cup, the U.S. could be in trouble. Each team has four rookies, but the European squad is older and has played in more games (see chart). Other than Juli Inkster (age 49 years, two months), no U.S. player is older than 32, and nine are under 30. Take out Inkster, and the team's already youthful average age drops to an astounding 25 years, eight months.

Greg Bisconti (right), a 36-year-old from The St. Andrews Golf Club in Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y., shot a 13-over 301 to finish 76th and take low-club-pro honors at the PGA Championship. Only one other teaching pro made the cut at Hazeltine, Grant Sturgeon (15-over 303), but 15 of the 20 "sweater salesmen" in the field bested former world No. 2 Adam Scott, who shot an 82--79 and finished last among the touring set.
