    On paper I reckon Europe have the stronger team overall. At the peak of their performance, Mickelson, Love and Woods may not be matched by any players from Europe. However, Clarke, Casey, Poulter, Garcia and Westwood, will certainly have the advantage over the USA's 'middle' players.

    My prediction.

    USA 12 Europe 16

    Have to go for Europe, was surprised that Langer went for Donald over Jacobsen but hey it's his choice. Fancy Europe to win it by 14½-13½.

    Fantastic start for Europe, best result after 4 matches ever, and we haven't even released Poults on 'em yet.

    Great first day for the Europeans leading 6½ - 1½, slap in the face for Sutton pairing Woods and Mickleson together and getting beaten both times.

    Afternoon results

    DiMarco/Haas v Jimenez/Levet
    won 3 and 2

    Love/Funk v Mont'rie/H'ton
    lost 4 and 2

  10. Woohoo! Go Europe! I'm not much of a golf fan, but 5 points ahead after the first day doesn't sound too bad.

    If Europe can come out at 2-2 after the morning fourballs they should be well pleased, the Americans should really capitalise on a weak middle 2 matches.

    The Americans have played much much better this morning in the fourballs but only won them 2½ - 1½, with Casey and Howell claiming the scalp of Furyk and Campbell after being 1 down playing the 17th. Felt sorry for Harrington this morning with Monty playing shite. Good idea to rest him in the afternoon foursomes.

    Afternoon foursomes

    DiMarco/Haas v Clarke/Westwood

    Mickelson/Toms v Jimenez/Levet

    Furyk/Funk v Garcia/Donald

    Love/Woods v Harrington/McGinley

    Fantastic afternoon for the Europeans winning the foursomes 3-1, couple of drubbings from Clarke/Westwood and Harrington/McGinley. Overall lead 11-5 for Europe.

    Singles draw has been anounced for tomorow, am very surprised to see Howell and Casey that high up the order despite the fact that they played well today, thought Langer would have packed the top 6 with his big guns. It's a very good draw for the Americans with the potential to get plenty of red on the leaderboard early on.

    Tiger Woods v Paul Casey
    Phil Mickelson v Sergio Garcia
    Davis Love v Darren Clarke
    Jim Furyk v David Howell
    Kenny Perry v Lee Westwood
    David Toms v Colin Montgomerie
    Chad Campbell v Luke Donald
    Chris DiMarco v Miguel Angel Jimenez
    Fred Funk v Thomas Levet
    Chris Riley v Ian Poulter
    Jay Haas v Padraig Harrington
    Stewart Cink v Paul McGinley

    Whopping great win for Europe today beating the USA 18½ - 9½, my apologies Woodie, Poulter delivered in great style beating Riley 3&2. Monty sank the winning putt and Harrington put the icing on the cake by sinking a 25 footer downhill on the last to get the final point. Hats off to Langer, fantastic captain, wouldn't begrudge him a second go in the K-Club.
