Kuchar says he's moved on from Ryder Cup



Matt Kuchar insisted on Tuesday that he has moved on from the United States' devastating Ryder Cup defeat, as he strives to banish the painful memories of Medinah with victory in Hong Kong.

Kuchar went down to Lee Westwood 3 and 2 in their Ryder Cup singles match, a loss which contributed to the hosts' last-day capitulation as Europe roared back on the final day to retain the trophy in September.

The 34-year-old American is ranked 17th in the world and won The Players Championship in May. "Every week you start off from scratch," he said. "No matter what you do the week before, the week before doesn't matter.

"The Ryder Cup was six weeks ago or thereabouts, and I've played a number of events since and I've been able to move on.

"It was an amazing event. The Ryder Cup was, and seems to be every year, just a fantastic event. This year was again just amazing.

"The US team was on the losing side but if you look at it from a greater perspective, it's one of those things that continues to attract fans to the game of golf. The nature of the sport and of us is such that you learn to move on." The UBS Hong Kong open begins on Thursday.
