GOLF: Europe's record victory over the U.S. team in the Ryder Cup helped produce the lowest final-day large-market ratings on NBC in the past three editions of the team event. Sunday's singles matches was watched in 3.4 percent of the homes in the top 56 U.S. media markets, according to Nielsen Media Research Inc, down 13 percent from major-market ratings for Europe's victory in 2002. Colin Montgomerie might try to become captain of the European team in 2006 if he doesn't qualify to play, his business manager said. Bernhard Langer said he likely will step down after his one-time stint as captain.
