Sure, great talent, serious preparation and good old-fashioned luck are all factors in winning the Ryder Cup, but victorious captain Colin Montgomerie also knows that the little things can make a big difference. As Monty revealed to the U.K.'s Mirror, the European team's superior sleeping arrangements might have been the factor that put them over the top in Wales.

"There are a lot of things behind the scenes you might not be aware of," said Montgomerie today at the launch of next May's 'Golf Live' event at the London Club in Kent.

"I looked at the rooms and thought they weren't big enough, so we all got connecting rooms.

"Then on the Saturday morning we got a removal company in and they brought six-foot beds and took the five-foot beds out.

"We were on the ninth floor and the Americans were on the eighth floor, but they didn't know about it." Corey Pavin and his side arrived two days later.

"You have one hit at this and I wanted to get it right."

This is, conceivably, the most irrelevant, senseless and perfectly worthless non-story I have ever seen on any subject...........not just golf. I'm personally assuming that Montgomerie had a bet with someone that he could get the Mirror to publish this drivel. I think what put the European team over the top was that they played better golf.

I bet Monty made sure they got the pick of the hookers too.

Like Hyenas over the lions discarded kill, SI seems to be the "carcass" of websites.

Absolutely right. Their threads are usually spam trash, no one gives a solitary **** and the "management" of this site could be better handled by a group of Indians off-site in Mumbai. No criticism of Indians intended At least they might care.

Sadly, most people seem to agree that SI is now a journalistic joke. If the print version is run anything like the web version then "out of business" can"t be far behind. Sorry guys, you used to be good!
