Banter early, pressure late in Ryder Cup

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) The Ryder Cup begins with banter and laughs. The pressure comes later.

The Europeans haven't lost on home soil in 25 years. Half of their team was in America on Sunday for the Tour Championship won by Tiger Woods. They got together for the first time Monday night and laughed through a 10-minute video of Irish impressionist Conor Moore.

Francesco Molinari won the British Open while playing alongside Woods. The Italian says the pressure of trying to win his first major is nowhere near what he feels during a Ryder Cup.
