What's next, faulty shoelaces?

NEWPORT, Wales -- We are approaching a point where any U.S. team-issued items that manages to remain in one piece at week's end can be deemed a success.

The latest in an almost comical string of malfunctions is a strap breaking on the Belding bag of Hunter Mahan. Mahan's caddie, John Wood, now has to carry the bag by the handle.

Well, at least it's not raining on him. Oh, never mind. It has resumed raining.
