By Larry Fine CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - Thunderous roars cut through the chilly morning mist at a packed Hazeltine National layout and a touching talisman at the first tee seemed to inspire the U.S. Ryder Cup team to a brilliant start on Friday. Tens of thousands of fans were in place by the 7:30 a.m. start to the 41st Ryder Cup to cheer an American side intent on beating Europe, winners of three in a row in the biennial match play event and eight of the last 10 competitions. In contrast to the wild splash of colors in the stands, Arnold Palmer's white U.S. Ryder Cup captain's golf bag from the 1975 matches at Laurel Valley Golf Club in Ligonier, Pennsylvania stood in the corner of the first tee box.

By Tony Jimenez CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - American fans made Danny Willett pay for his brother's midweek rant when they booed the Masters champion on to the first tee on his Ryder Cup debut on Friday, paving the way for a stream of taunts later on. The Englishman and his fourballs partner Martin Kaymer also had to contend with an inspired performance from their opponents as big-hitting rookie Brooks Koepka and hot-putting Brandt Snedeker charged to a 5&4 victory. Willett was forced to apologize after his journalist sibling Pete hit out at the Hazeltine National crowd, saying Europe needed "to silence the pudgy, basement-dwelling, irritants, stuffed on cookie dough and pissy beer".
