NAPA, Calif. (AP) -- The Presidents Cup followed the end of a long season for Patrick Reed, and he still has a long way to go.

Those traveling, song-loving ''Fanatics'' at the Presidents Cup had no trouble finding the right tune for Branden Grace, with a slight change of lyrics. The 27-year-old spark plug from South Africa was at his best for the International team all week at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea. Not only did he become only the second International player to go 5-0 for the week - Shigeki Maruyama was the other in 1998 - only one of those matches reached the 18th hole.

Miller says he was thrilled that NBC Sports Group has the U.S. television rights for the British Open starting in 2017. NBC agreed to a 12-year deal with the R&A.

British Open broadcasts on NBC will start a year early, debuting in 2016. In June, NBC Sports Group announced a 12-year deal with the R&A for U.S. television coverage starting in 2017. ESPN was scheduled to air the tournament next July to complete an eight-year contract, but NBC said Monday it had negotiated with the R&A and ESPN to take over in '16.

The best Presidents Cup in 10 years revealed exactly what the Americans need to do if they want to win the Ryder Cup. The International team long believed that playing more matches gave the Americans an advantage because of their depth, and the fact this Presidents Cup wasn't decided until the final match suggests some truth to that. The International team was disappointed the matches were not reduced from 34 to 28, and the Americans were irritated by a compromise that reduced them to 30.

By Tony Jimenez WOBURN, England (Reuters) - The European Tour can proudly boast the arrival of a highly promising new young kid on the block following Matt Fitzpatrick's stunning two-shot win at the $4.55 million British Masters. Clearly the event is not of the same stature as the U.S. Masters but the 21-year-old Englishman was happy to draw comparisons between his victory on Sunday and American Jordan Spieth's triumph in the year's opening major in April. "Winning wire-to-wire is something I think most players dream of and it's not often it gets done," Fitzpatrick told reporters with a beaming smile.

Jay Haas took a deep breath, trying to calm nerves he had only ever felt on the golf course while playing. American victory depended on Bill Haas, who was much more than a captain's pick. ''I was much more emotional, I think, than if it would have been anyone else on the team,'' Jay Haas said.

Jackie Stoelting won the IOA Golf Classic on Sunday for her second straight Symetra Tour title, shooting her third 4-under 67 for a two-stroke victory. Finishing the season as a non-member on the Symetra Tour after struggling on the LPGA Tour, Stoelting won the El Dorado Shootout two weeks ago in Arkansas for her first tour title. ''It was a huge monkey off my back to win two weeks ago and now to win two in a row after six professional seasons is everything I could have asked for,'' Stoelting said.
