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.

    • But this issue was playing a different type of ball. Not just changing balls.
    • I knew we could not change during  a hole but between holes was OK. Model Local Rule G-4 is a local rule so my question is, is it often used in other competitive rounds or primarily on the “Tours”?
    • We are just one week out now from calling in the tee times.  I will update as I am able to do so.  
    • I played Croasdaile the other day from the blues (par 72, 6511 yards, 71.9/136). I was +8 through 7, not too bad, but then weather caught me and I had to stop. But an hour later I was able to continue. I rope hooked my drive OB and made a quad, then made a solid bogey on the ninth to make the turn at 49.  I then three putted the short par 5 tenth for bogey and made double from the fringe on the 11th. Then I played the toughest stretch on the course, holes 12-14, in just one over. Six over on the last four holes added up to a 46 on the back, 95 total. I played the last 11 holes in +15 and in about 1:15. Not my best effort for sure, but my handicap didn’t move. I’m playing again later today, so I’ll see if I can get my handicap moving in the right direction!
    • Good point, if not June 20 and Sticking to Sunday’s I could do July 11, 18 or 25 I could survive a 5 hour round if the company is good but that would kill the whole day once I add a little range & putting time, an hour drive each way and the 19th hole. Still I will do it if that is what works for others.
