Both captains front loading certainly gives Europe their best chance of success, but I don't see a Rory win as a given. I've not seen any stats, but it feels like Reed had scored just as well as Mcilroy.

I'm not really sure what your big hangup with this is.  The Ryder Cup is a team event (and an exhibition with no money on the line mind you).  Do you not cheer when your favorite football/soccer team'

On another note, when is the PGA going to wake up to picking US venues that may favor the American squad a little more from a weather standpoint? Basically the entire team lives in South Florida and v

Patrick Reed can say this much for sure without sounding arrogant in the slightest bit - this was the top 5 greatest performance in the history of RC.. Anything one can say about him taking down

How is who plays who decided? Do the captains know the team pairings and tee times of the other team? Do they talk about it and work out the matches? Or, say for the singles matches today, does Love "secretly" put his 12 in a time slot with Clarke doing the same, and only then do the matches get decided....???

I have searched a LOT of articles for this answer and can't find one. Any help will be greatly appreciated! 

Oh, and go USA! Let's also stop the damn heckling! All it's doing is firing up the European players and also setting a nasty stage for the US at the next one.

WHow are the pairings made?  Does home team set their lineup first and the visiting team sets the pairing or is it reverse?  

Each team "orders" their pairings from 1-12, without knowing the order of the other team. #1 is then matched against #1, etc.

So, you can't blame the captain too much. It's not like he picked Reed against Rory.

Also, just because Reed is hot right now, it doesn't mean he's the best US player. Let's not turn him into 2005 Tiger just based on two days of play.

I'm rooting for Rory in the first match over 6-year old Patrick Reed. I'll root for USA in the other 11.

One final note...it's fine to get fired up and excited after a putt or shot, but it's another thing to act like Patrick Reed has. I can't stand it.

I think the Reed hate is excessive. Rory has been acting like the six year old this week IMO.

Yeah, I really don't understand the comment about Reed.  How is anything that he has done different than what Rory (or many others) has done?  I don't think either party has acted like 6 year old, I think they're playing with more passion than they do at any other golf event and it's great to watch IMO.  And this is coming from a guy who can only stand Patrick Reed for three days every two years....

 

 

Also Pieters is finding out that the Ryder Cup is a lot more difficult when you don't get to ride Rory's shoulders the whole time...  It's one on one now and he looks overmatched.

Reeds excitement is fake. Rorys comes right out at moment it happens. Reed just does it to get crowd going.

Rory hasnt been as bad as Reed. Plus I think Rory's stems from anger at the crowd. Reeds celebrations look too fake to me. It just looks bad.

I see it the exact opposite. Rory's come across as reactionary and petulant to me.

Whatever.  When you see Rory say cmon with his yell , that comes from within.Pure emotion. Reed has to act like hes having a seizure and over do it which looks fake to me. Watch my two favorites Phil and Sergio play. You wont see all that stuff. Sergio gives lil fist pump like phil does, no yelling.

Disagree. I am not a Reed fan, and this weekend is making me hate him more. He needs to stop acting like a friggin 3-year old. And like it's been mentioned, he's not the only one.

This discussion reminds me of my grumpy old grandfather complaining about touchdown celebrations in the NFL.

No it's dumber than that, it's your Grandpa complaining about Antonio Brown's dancing while lauding Victor Cruz's salsa...

Rory staring down fans every time he makes a putt. What a joke. Something must have made the guy forget that he's a 5'7 leprechaun.
