Bottom games are massive with the US finally making something happen. If they can get out of these with 1.5 or even a couple of points that’ll be huge going into this afternoon.

That was Spieth magic!

Man, the U.S. team just plays some shitty golf.

You want to see “chemistry?” Play better golf. Win matches.

Spieth and Thomas is a good pairing. They look the best of the US team so far. 

With Tiger and Reed not at their best and Moliwood fired up, it's a tough pair to beat. 

Kopeka and Finau has been hitting a bit too much from the rough today.

García seemed like a strange pick, but he's done his job so far. He's one of the guys in this era closer towards the top of the lists of most wins. Just a great RC player.

Reed drops the "motherf***er" after a missed shot. I don't mind passion and some expletives, but that just sounds out of place.

Good observation. I mean, who else could have possibly come to that conclusion?

Also, if you don't mind "passion" and some "expletives," how is that "out of place?"

I'm not sure PReed would break 85 today. He hit it RIGHT of the water hazard on the hole he just played.

Not out of place. Just a little unusual they left the mic open. PGA Tour players swear as much as anyone else.

Today it's the U.S. fans that should be saying that to him, though. Again, probably not breaking 85.

I don't think I can explain it any better. "f***", "shit", "dammit" etc. I'd not mind. I know we don't hear most of it on TV, but that's my opinion, microphones or not.

Finau and Koepka is making it interesting after all.

US keeping heat on in the top game. Half would feel like a loss in that game. We need to do the same in the bottom game. These last few holes are incredible!

Did Koepka just drive it 375 yards?

"Lot of golf left to go here," the NBC/GolfChannel crews remind us. And sure, I'm not giving up on watching. But please with you trying to secure your ratings. We all know how this is likely to end.

Ugly ugly morning matches.  Wtf has Reed been doing.  Any thoughts on him playing with his hero (TW) putting to much pressure on him?  Would seem like Tiger Koepka could be a good pairing.

Rose/Stenson, Noren/ Hatton, Fleetwood/ Molinari, Garcia/ Casey my team for this afternoon.

But I imagine Mcilroy will play, maybe with Poulter in the last match.

Molinari hadn't won anything on his two previous RC appearances. Good to see him get it done this time.

Good thing we’ve been so far up in most of these because we’ve played 15 horribly.

Great Golf from the Euro team .. Not so much U S A > U S A !!  

Mollywood about to wipe the floor with Tiger/scientist  ?? least no more Capt America (completely out of form for this comp)

I can't see EURO losing from here ... the bulk of the team playing out of their skins -

I think there will be a lot of Questions on USA selections ..esp around Bubba/Phil ...Coming in far too cocky on the back of Tigers win

Unfortunately bubba earned his way on, he never plays well overseas though. Phil On the other hand...

At the end of the day the pairings have been bad more than the talent on the team. It’s like the US tries to get too cute with pairings and Democratic about playing everyone and not riding their best players. Europe in the other hand always does a good job of riding their strongest players and hiding their weakest.

    • Today I started using mine to practice on the carpet at home.
      Primarily for chipping and checking impact and flight direction. That helps me adjust my grip/clubhead angle. Their weight and material will obviously result in a different distance when hit in comparison to a regular golf ball. Therefore I would only use it for occasional practice at home.
    • So a local cadie who cadies the course whole year round, knows less about the course then a pro caddie who visits the course once a year (for a week). Or even less because the pro’s don’t play the course every year.                                     And about not speaking English, what do we know for sure? Even caddies in Marroko at mediocre courses speak enough English, at least enough to caddie. And Matt doesn’t speak a word Mexican/Spanish too? People find ways to communicate.                                             One way or an other, Kuchar was at the top of his form. The way the caddie acted could be more important then is given credit for.
    • 72 last week at TPC Summerlin from the TPC tees (6400) in maybe one of the coldest conditions I've ever played in. 71 today back home, hit 15 greens. Missed four birdie putts within 5ft and got a bad break where I drove it into a bunker and it plugged in the lip (made bogey). Not bad for the range being closed and only getting to practice once this week and not much last week either. This was my drive on 15, and it wasn't like it was a high fade, solid medium flight draw.  
    • Yeah it was a dumb move PR wise to not be very generous with the bonus.  Can't really compare the usual rate with that week with Ortiz, completely different situations. John Wood is there for him every minute of every week, scouting the course beforehand, getting yardages, mapping greens and paying for his own travel. They can also act as emotional "support" and the good ones figure out when to give it and when to hold back. Ortiz is nowhere close to building up that "sweat equity" to earn 10%. If I was John Wood I would have been very insulted if my guy paid a temp caddy 120K.  
    • “How much should you pay?” questions tend to select responses. How much should you pay for a car? Obviously the guy who paid over a million for his McLaren doesn’t think everyone should; that’s the whole point of having one. Likewise, the guys with the $2k custom Scottys want something exclusive.   So it makes sense that most of the responses are $300 or less. If you just want to make putts, and know basically what you need in terms of length and style (mallet, blade, etc.), I don’t think you need to spend more than $100 on ebay. I’ve sold several perfectly serviceable and respectably branded putters for less.   Personally, I paid $350 for my Evnroll ER5, which I love. I like it so much that I’m going to spend even more for the black one when it becomes available. It was a subtle difference between the ER5 and my Ping Tyne ($189, I think), that it replaced. But given a choice, I’d choose the Evnroll every time. I can’t afford — and have no desire — to run with the big dogs when it comes to putters. And if I couldn’t afford a $350 putter, I think I’d do ok with any of the ones that I sold. But it’s a hobby, and it could be worse. I could be collecting large stationary engines.
