Forget the majors, forget an Olympic gold medal: Jordan Spieth's big goal in 2016 is winning the Ryder Cup with the United States.

The top-ranked Spieth says "we're tired of hearing about changes that need to be made. We're tired of hearing about the past. And we're ready to believe in a younger, more hungry team going forward."

The European team has won eight of the past 10 editions of the Ryder Cup.

Since losing 16½-11½ at Gleneagles in 2014, the Americans have appointed Davis Love III for a second stint as captain and created a so-called "task force" to take a closer look at where the team has been going wrong.

Spieth says "when we get there this year, it starts over."
