Nice to see Woods keeping to his normal  Ryder Cup form ... but hope that some USA  players give us a bit of a contest

 

Europe is going to need at least a 2 point lead going into singles. Top to bottom in singles they don’t match up well with the US

The good news is the US has kept these matches close on the front. They’ve fared pretty well on the back but were too far back in most matches for it to matter by tgen

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

Webb Simpson a more straight hitter and came into Ryder Cup in some of the best form among player. Probably should have been playing a lot more than just two matches. Was a little off yesterday, although Bubba was more off.....but he is playing really well today.

Boy US is playing incredibly stupid. Horrible course management. Everyone trying to be a hero instead of just playing smart. We’re gonna get schooled badly.

Tiger and SLIG are working on a comeback. Still enough holes to do it on.

Three out of the five holes Moliwood's won has been off US bogies. If they make par at worst and a few birdies, anything can happen.

Why does Tiger look like he would rather be on a beach somewhere ?

Because he's looking to be 0-3 for the RC after today.

I've been listening to the UK broadcast and it's really enjoyable. Nice relaxed crew, praising good play on both sides, a few witty ones here and there, but not trying to force anything. Like a bunch of guys just watching golf and chatting.

Justin Thomas was lights out today. Without him it might have been 11-5 or 12-4

I think I saw an info graphic that no pairing has gone 4-0 in the RC before. Well done, Molinari and Fleetwood.

At least European.

Ehh, without his partner Spieth he would have been nowhere.

Yep, that seems correct. 

Now we just wait for tomorrow's pairings. When will we see Reed or Phil?

Good showings today by Thomas, Spieth and Webb. Bubba played decent. The rest of the team just didn't really show up. Finau, Reed and DeChambeau have been a major disappointment and I just don't think DJ and Koepka have the fire in them like the Euros do.

As for Tiger, you knew it wasn't going to be easy for him this week coming off such an emotional week last week. It would have been nice if partners gave him some help, but Reed/Bryson played like dog crap.

    • Finally birdied #9. It was one of those "boring" birdies on a par 5; Pulled drive to right rough, good lay up to fairway 50 yards short of the green, 60° to 12' and a good putt to make it a nice 4.  Yes! 
    • I have struggled with my golf swing for a long time with over the top problem resulting in big slices, pulls, and inconsistent contacts. My handicap ranges from 18 to 21 and I have broken 90 less than 5 times in my life with a total of 10 years of golf. I have tried many changes and took instructions but the changes never stick. Like many amateurs sometimes I thought I have discovered the magic fix only to be disappointed later. I hope this is not the case. In the last month, I have experimented with Stack and Tilt and I found out that it allows me to have better contact with the ball and minimize the over the top problem. In my last two rounds, I have shot 14, and 10 over. In the last few months I also have a golf simulator which allowed me to practice almost daily. I don't know if the two low scores are the results of stack and tilt or the simulator or both. I find that it is easier to pivot on the left foot for both the full swing, pitching and chipping. With the full swing, stack and tilt method somehow allows my right elbow to be closer to my body and I turn and swing the club from the inside much better. I was hitting the driver 240 to 270 in the last two rounds. Before I used to hit the driver 220 to 240. I will play again in 2 weeks, it will be interesting if I can break 90 again. Has anyone else had similar success with stack and tilt?
    • Day 117.  I spent well over five minutes trying to figure out my timing via the tempo app, as per Erik's Covid-19 drills day 8.  I think I got it (85 bpm) and got some practice with that and the app in;  I'll aim to get some video to see if I'm doing this right before doing the second half of the drill.
    • I lipped out an eagle putt on the #2 hc hole, but tapped in the remaining 1 footer for birdie. It was on hole #5 which was vacant of a birdie on the excel sheet. My driver was working well for me today. - 8 at this point.
