Ryder Cup captains Corey Pavin and Colin Montgomerie are having none of this Tweeter/Spacebook stuff the kids are all into. They've banned the use of Twitter and other social networks by golfers during the three-day competition that begins Friday in Cardiff, Wales.

"We have decided as a whole to not tweet this week," said Pavin, whose U.S. team will play Montgomerie's European team this weekend. "It can be a little bit distracting sometimes. I think it's important to focus on the Ryder Cup and playing the matches and just enjoying camaraderie with the team itself.

"But first thing a week from today, I'm sure tweeting will be all over the place."

Yeah, it does tend to back up.
