Veterans help Europe seize Ryder Cup lead with foursomes whitewash

  • Casey played for Bjorn in Europe's EurAsiaCup team earlier this year

"Four years is a long wait but the second I got going this morning, I felt good".

"It was a tough morning for me but a great afternoon - a bit of a roller coaster ride", said Bjorn.

"We believe in it as a group", Bjorn said after ending the day with a 5-3 lead.

It got worse for the Americans.

Tiger Woods has probably seen enough of Francesco Molinari this year.

Justin Rose and Jon Rahm had at least a one-shot lead for 15 of the first 16 holes until a stroke of luck from Tony Finau. They combined for five birdies over their last seven holes to polish off Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed, 3 and 1, and salvage a morning that belonged to the Americans.

As for Saturday's matchups, Woods will once again partner with Reed in the morning.

Tiger Woods of the US places the cover of a water sprinkler as he jokes with Patrick Reeds, center, and Jordan Spieth, right, during a practice round of the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, outside Paris, France, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018.


"I have not heard that he's had a back problem, so I would say that that's not true", said Furyk.

The golf course changed in the afternoon with the wind picking up, and with it the momentum swung in Europe's favour. He said he was all good. I was actually out practicing tonight after the matches. "I am not aware of anything like that, and I didn't get any information like that from Tiger or my vice captains".

Captains typically opt for the birdie machines in fourballs and for the best players in alternate shot, when it's imperative to strike shots solidly. Shortly after Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter won 4&2 and were followed by an impressive 5&4 performance from Alex Noren and Sergio Garcia.

A spectator had to be treated on the side of course during the opening morning of the Ryder Cup after she was inadvertently struck in the face by Brooks Koepka's ball at Le Golf national. "I think his fourball is a little better than his foursomes, but I realize the golf course is tight". "They practiced a lot together".

"I have so much confidence in Phil, in his ability to take a young player like Bryson and help him out, and also, it's Phil Mickelson, Major Champion".

"Well, it's been a lot of golf", said US captain Jim Furyk of the added stress on Woods for winning last week and playing often this year.

But in the very next answer, when asked about his Day 1 foursomes lineup, Furyk said: "I'll be honest, I'd do it again".
