Surpresing the Yanks, but how?

For the second straight season a young European has claimed the money title on both the european tour and the PGA tour. A feat that has become a notable historic moment. This recent European success has not only shown up throughout the year but also when it comEs to the rider cup time.  With Europe dominating the results even with as it seems lack luster rosters.

However,
This year Brandt Snedeker won the Fed-ex cup witch shows te golfing population that the system maybe flawed. He may be the best putter of the golf ball in the world but it showed in the Ryder cup money performances throughout a long season does not accumulate to a stress free golfer capable of taking on and completing any challenge as previous winners like Tiger has shown in past seasons.

As a European you would imagine I would be chuffed with these results however I want to see the young American golfers come up and compete against the best of the euros.
Alas, to my lack of involvement in national golfing circles I don't understand how the, for example, GUI keep spurring out well developed golfers capable of competing at the top level.

 It seems to me that a huge flaw in the system is the people recruiting the young boys and girls who will be trained and nutured by the best of coaches are too focused on results of the young too early and don't look into the potential of the golfers who may not understand just yet how to score in defining moments. 1 answer. Funding.
