The European Ryder Cup team is remembering slain Iowa State golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena. The 22-year-old from Spain was killed last week while golfing in Ames. The European team that includes Spaniards Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm will wear yellow ribbons this week in honor of Arozamena's favorite color. European captain Thomas Bjorn said the killing ''hit everybody in the golf family, and obviously our two Spanish players very much.'' He describes Barquin Arozamena as ''a great prospect for the game of golf'' and ''a wonderful person.'' The team consulted with Barquin Arozamena's mother before deciding to honor her. The Ryder Cup begins Friday in France.
