Chris Wood has warned Team USA that the Ryder Cup is only on loan to them until Paris in 2018 -- when some of the players facing Europe wont know what has hit them. Chuck Bednarik Jersey .Wood, who won a point on debut in the Saturday foursomes with Justin Rose, said he enjoyed the event despite his sides 17-11 defeat at Hazeltine and is hungry for more.The cup is only on loan. When they come to Paris, the course will be set up very differently, Wood said. It was a soft setup there, made for the Americans, and they get that choice. But when they come to Paris, a lot of them wont know whats hit them. Its one of the most demanding courses we play [on the European Tour], for the French Open, and thats not been set up for the Ryder Cup, so bring it on!We will undoubtedly be stronger as a team as a result of the defeat. Youd like to think 6-10 of those players would be on the next team and I want to be one of them. My mind has already gone to Paris and what I need to do to make sure Im there.I have got over that hurdle of the first appearance at the Ryder Cup, and playing it in America was being thrown in at the deep end. I loved every minute of it -- and we lost. Now I want to be in that team room on a Sunday night having won. I dont just want to play in one edition, I want to play in five or six and win as many as I can.Wood indicated it was hard for Darren Clarke to keep all of his 12-man team happy because settling on a strategy with six rookies among them was difficult. But the captain was still firing up his players for the next edition as they prepared to leave Minnesota.The BMW PGA champion said: As soon as we finished and were getting ourselves ready for the presentation in our locker room, Clarkey was saying: Right lads, Paris 2018, well get it back. Even though he is not going to be captain then, and it was probably one of the hardest times for him in the week, the passion in Europe for the Ryder Cup is so strong.The week of the biennial event is as intense for the players, and Wood has felt a bit of relief returning to preparations for the familiar situation of a European Tour competition.Hes playing in the British Masters, which starts at The Grove in Hertfordshire on Thursday, and is hosted by Luke Donald, who narrowly missed out on a place on the team for Hazeltine.Everything after the PGA Championship was about making the European Ryder Cup team and the buildup to the competition, Wood said. My mind was so in cup mode that it took over my life: I moved house and wouldnt lift a box because I didnt want to risk any sort of injury.Life has moved on now and were back in normal tournament mode, ready to get back in my own bubble and carry on playing. I have five events now until the end of the year -- the beginning of the end of the season. I want to finish strongly and have a nice break over the winter. Jay Ajayi Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Lane Johnson Jersey . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. http:///...y-graham-jersey.html . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead.In a very unexpected title race, we look at five former Tottenham stars who can do their former club a huge favour. League leaders Leicester are on the verge of making history, but they are anything but over the line yet, as Manchester United fans will testify, having seen their side incredibly chased down by Manchester City in 2012.Spurs lead the chasing pack, and with a seven-point gap to make up, theyll need all the help they can get in their quest for a first Premier League crown themselves. We look at five former Spurs stars who can lend a helping hand and help ruin the Foxes fairy tale.Gylfi Sigurdsson Gylfi Sigurdsson could be most influential in helping Spurs title bid After impressing on-loan with Swansea in 2011/12, Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson looked set to make his stay in south Wales permanent, before Spurs swooped in with a last-gasp bid of around £9m to secure his services.The move didnt really pay off, and the attacking midfielder was soon back where his Premier League story started, and is arguably the Swans most pivotal component in their fight for survival.And, in helping his current side stay afloat, Sigurdsson could make his biggest contribution to Spurs - attempting to beat Leicester when Swansea travel to the King Power Stadium on April 24, live on Sky Sports. Will Bendtner ever learn? Nicklas Bendtners Wolfsburg issues The match is most likely one of Leicesters more winnable games, but until safety is mathematically certain, the Swans will not be pushovers, especially with Sigurdsson in their arsenal.Jermain Defoe Jermain Defoe scored 48 league goals for Tottenham Sunderlands hopes of survival rest with Jermain Defoe. He has scored four times as many goals as anyone else in the Black Cats squad, but the former Spurs striker can do serious damage to his former sides rivals simultaneously.Sam Allardyces side host Leicester on Super Sunday, where even a point will do Sunderland the world of good, and give the chasing pack hope that all is not lost. Then, with Arsenal needing to earn maximum points to close the imposing gap at the top, Sunderland could effectively end Arsene Wengers hopes of a late title tilt - pleasing Spurs fans in more ways than one - when the Black Cats welcome the Gunners to the Stadium of Light on April 24.Michael Carrick Michael Carrick could help his former club out It is easy to forget that Michael Carrick played for two other top flight clubs before Manchester United, having plied his trade at Old Trafford for so long, but Carrick made the jump from promising youngster to potential Roy Keane successor while at White Hart Lane. Chris Maragos Jersey. With Bastian Schweinsteiger injured, the United veteran is likely to be Louis van Gaals midfield anchor as United toil for a top four spot.And, in a strange turn of events, rather than being the team chasing the title, United welcome Leicester to Old Trafford on May 1, live on Sky Sports, with the visitors the ones gunning for the Premier League crown.The Foxes have thrived through playing counter-attacking football, and Carricks main task will be to dictate tempo so that Claudio Ranieris side are stifled, thus opening the door for Spurs, should they still be in the race at that point.Emmanuel Adebayor Emmanuel Adebayor taunted Arsenal fans when at Man City In a colourful career, Emmanuel Adebayor enjoyed some of his most fruitful years at White Hart Lane, before falling out of favour and being released in September.Adebayor is now with struggling Crystal Palace, looking to resurrect his career, and having a notoriously fractious relationship with Arsenal fans since his departure in 2009, the enigmatic striker would love nothing more than to end the Gunners title hopes.He will get an opportunity to do just that when Palace travel to Arsenal on May 17, live on Sky Sports, helping the Eagles steer clear of the bottom three in the process.Aaron Lennon Aaron Lennon has enjoyed a revival at Everton Having spent ten years in north London, falling out of favour at Spurs must have knocked Aaron Lennons confidence a great deal, but he has done a fine job of rejuvenating himself at Everton.With some talented attacking players at his disposal, Roberto Martinezs persistence with Lennon is testament to the England internationals ability, and such quality could have a big say in the title race.Leicester host the Toffees on May 7, live on Sky Sports, and with only two games to go after the King Power encounter, the fixture could well be make or break for the Foxes.Everton have previous in this scenario, coming back from the dead to draw 4-4 at Old Trafford, paving the way for City to overtake their rivals, and Lennons pace on the counter could help instigate a similar late revival for his former club.
