    3 zip to USA atm. Come on Europe. Otherwise another Medinah Miracle required if we fall too far behind.

    3-1 to the Yanks, Rahm and McIlroy the big disappointments leaving their partners fend for themselves this morning, and even then Rose was only beat by a Finau fluke.

    Europe have a tendency to dominate foursomes at home and these pairings give them a chance.

    Match 1: Stenson/Rose vs Johnson/Fowler

    Match 2: McIlroy/Poulter vs Watson/Simpson

    Match 3: Garcia/Noren vs Mickelson/DeChambeau

    Match 4: Molinari/Fleetwood vs Thomas/Spieth

    None of these are predictable at all.

    Less than ideal right now for the good guys. Shouldn’t have sat Finau and Koepka

    Phil + Bryson has been a disaster. Who could have seen that coming? Oh yeah. Everyone. Phil is unplayable. Hide him until Sunday

    Typically it is Europeans that surrender so easily in France, not Americans. :D

    7 up through 9 is filth. More indicative of Phil and DeChambeau but still!

    Molinari-Tommy vs. Tiger-Reed
    Poulter-Rahm vs. JT-Spieth

    2-2 from this session I'd wager.

    I’m ready for the Americans to show up. Any time now would be great.

    Moliwood should go 4 for 4 there, I'd fancy Europe in game 2, game 1 and 4 should be crackers.

    The Yanks desperately need to close out Poults and Rahm and get at least 2 points this afternoon, probably 3+ though.

    If Speith and Thomas don't finish this then it's pretty much over. McIlroy's turn around in form from yesterday morning has been something else.

    The Yanks are gonna have to pull a Medinah out of the bag. I don't see it happening.

    Could get close but I think the guys at the back will clean up for us.

    So Europe need to take only 4 points from those final 12 singles matches to take back Cup compared to 8 for the USA to draw and retain the cup?

    I make it EU 17 US 11. Dunno if I'm being optimistic about Rose though as Simpson has not been too bad...

    Man I wish the Ryder Cup was more often...or just team based match play golf (I can watch strokeplay but I find it less entertaining).
