Well played team Europe, and well done Bjorn who obviously knows his stuff better than most of us give him credit for. Great tournament 👍

There is a classic management mistake known as "hoping for A while rewarding for B." As you note, we hope that our players will perform well on one type of course, while we select them based on their

I think the posts about it being an exhibition and players not caring is sour grapes.  The players care (especially the younger guys)  they just lost.  No excuses about it they just need to play bette

The afternoon pairings need to be a bit more creative now. A big hole we are in. Reed has to sit he is off. 

Pairings have been out DJ/Koepka, Simpson/bubba, Tiger/Bryson, spieth/Thomas.  I would have swapped finau/fowler for one of the middle two

A 2-4 point lead for Euro after today would be cool. USA is statistically better at singles, but the way they are playing out there it might end on a different note tomorrow.

I really want it to come down to the last two matches tomorrow.

@eich41 thanks. I must have dosed off during the morning wave. Based off what you posted they did switch it up. I would have liked to see Fowler as his game and demeanor work well in this setting. I do not like the DJ/Brooks match or Bubba/Webb one. I would have liked Finau/Simpson and Richie/Brooks group. Oh well hopefully we get some points in the afternoon. Tiger pairings is curious as he looked annoyed at times so far.

Bubba and Webb might be a good match if they get eachother going. The Jesus pairing.

Bubba and Noren hit a wedge each into the drink on the second. Not very impressive.

Wtf is Simpson doing? 

What is that entire flight doing? Three wedges in the water. Very nearly four! 

Then Noren duffs the chip. The 134 yard hole halved with a pair of triple bogies. Don't see that every day.

USA needs at least 2 1/2 this afternoon. Although the way the USA is playing I’m not sure how much of an advantage we have in the singles tomorrow 

Maybe we should have used a couple captains picks for a couple guys who hit it straight?

Man I dunno. I think we need 3+.

We are all over the course. Tiger/Bryson looks out of sorts. They need to make a run. Enough of going down 2 or 3 and playing catchup 

Yup and Koepka just missed fairway with long iron

USA always has advantage in singles. It's been the Doubles that has given the Americans fits over the years. I think Bjorn is definitely been out-captaining Furyk. He's smart continually putting Molinari/Fleetwood against Tiger. He set this course up with long rough for a reason. Also, his captain's picks are definitely outshining Furyk's. I haven't liked some of the pairings Furyk has used, but I'm not sure any others would have mattered. Many of the guys are playing like crap.

How are we missing the fairway so much. 

Because US has longer hitters, but worse ballstrikers.
