Jesus I think Webb Simpson is the only American who may win today. This is a tidal wave of blue.

Yep. And US giving a spectacular clinic on 'how to pull a putt less than 8'

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

Finau is a lock right now.

Yup Finau too. But that’s it.

The Mickelson match is going very poorly already.

Too many of the matches are tight to be saying this just yet.

I'm not sure why the US team spent the money on an airline ticket to Paris for Phil.

Because at any minute he could turn it on and win holes unlike the others....but I doubt he will cause he looks tired.

Disagree with this. Any player can turn it on and win holes when they get hot just like Phil. This isn’t the Phil of 30 years old anymore. This is a player in his late 40s who was not on good form when he was picked.

Good 20 minutes for US. JT looks good to go 1 up down 18.

A/S. 

DJ with the 1% putt.

Rory just lost his match on 18. 

Not bad actually I thought Thomas would beat him badly.

Sad end to that match but JT put the pressure on with a great drive.

and suddenly we’ve stopped hiking putts! This is gonna go down to the wire.

Glimmer of hope opening here. From the first half of matches, need Tiger to at least halve his match and Webb/Koepka to hold on. If that happens, the US would be tied at 10.5 with late matches going on.

    • IMO, if you hit 11 GIR's you should shoot 73. I agree that you should work on putting and chipping - at least half of total practice time.   Might want to try an app like MyRoundPro that shows strokes gained (and lost) in different parts of the game. More objective than traditional stats.  
    • 48-39-87 Weird day. My short game was killing me and then I got it in high gear. Parred the last 6 holes. 
    • Some range time after playing today. Just searching a bit for some consistency. I found it more in making shorter (of course) backswings.  Also, a bit more left hip goes back and up, and feels like I get some belt buckle pointing to sky more.  Just trying to clean up low point better. I rather hit some slight thins by extending up more than by flipping to avoid fatting shots.  Some driver swings. Today I was hitting a ton of push cuts (no playable). When I tried to play for them I hit the ball straight (Golf sucks).  Baseline Driver... (not a push cut, of course) Kind of same feels for iron swing. Shorter backswing, belt buck up to sky as I turn.    On a side note, its getting easier to just turn the swing length down by making a what feels like an 75% turn on the backswing. Of course, I get to 90 degrees here making what feels like is like partial backswing shoulder turn.   
    • I would say it’s about 50/50 in terms of too long or too short. Usually I’m pretty on line - it’s mainly distance control. Downhill putts are especially hard for me to judge.    I am staring at my putter more wondering if maybe it is time for a change. I have had the same box set Maxfli putter for almost 20 years. The grip is all worn down and you can see where I strike it on the face. I’ve never tried another putter so maybe I should try something that gives me better feedback.    
    • Shot 83 today, 16 GIR/nGIR, 31 putts, and 3 penalty strokes. Considering the high GIR/nGIR amount (for me), I should have had a better score, but I had three very costly swings that I estimate cost me 4-5 strokes. 1) Approach shot OB on #2, ended up making triple bogey. 2) Tee shot on #6 into penalty area, but managed bogey with a good approach after penalty drop. 3) Easy sand shot on #14 that I picked perfectly clean instead of hitting sand, and launched about 60 yards over the green into the native junk/weeds. Ended up making double bogey after it took two more shots from knee high grass to get onto the green. Drove the ball well today, and short game COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills are continuing to pay off. Missed some makeable birdie putts, but no 3-putts, so overall putting was fine.
