KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. -- Fasten your seat belt for the 1991 Ryder Cup. If only Steve Pate had followed that sage bit of advice, he would have been draped in red, white and blue this morning for the start of this biennial taffy pull against Europe's best golfers.Instead, Pate will wear a girdle and be reduced to the role of cheerleader as his fellow Americans hit the shores of Kiawah Island's Ocean Course -- it is hoped with a softer landing than our heroes experienced en route to a gala banquet in downtown Charleston on Wednesday evening.
