Ryder Cup: Day 2 Predictions for All 4 Morning Matches

Adjust Comment Print

Phil Mickelson missed his first opening session since his rookie year in the Ryder Cup, and he was missing while in action during the afternoon.

The United States team quickly saw its 3-1 lead in the Ryder Cup turn into a 5-3 deficit after a historic afternoon sweep by Europe.

Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter vs. Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson.

There were suggestions that Woods was suffering from a back problem when he did not feature in the second session after suffering a defeat alongside Patrick Reed to Europe's Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood in the morning fourballs.

Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler recorded seven birdies on their way to a 4 and 2 win over Rory McIlroy and Thorbjorn Olesen and as a fourball pairing, look extremely unsafe despite their ordinary records.

Both players were subsequently left out of the foursomes, which Europe won comprehensively, though they will partner each other again in Saturday morning's fourballs. After two pars on No. 17, the Europeans played a disastrous 18th hole so instead of a loss, the Americans took a full point with a Brooks Koepka par.

In Woods' absence, the US suffered a 4-0 whitewash in the foursomes and are 5-3 down following the opening day, but Furyk expects them to recover from that mauling.

Grundfest also said that the challenge for the SEC is to "appropriately discipline Musk while not harming Telsa's shareholders". CFRA's Garrett Nelson cut his rating on the shares to Sell from Hold and lowered his price target to $225 from $265.

Jim Furyk wanted to make one point abundantly clear on Friday night, after his USA team was swept in a session for the first time in 29 years.

The source said that Woods was also seen taking painkillers to combat the injury at the Ryder Cup Gala Dinner at the Palace of Versailles on Wednesday.

Rory McIlroy was the only player to not make a birdie in the morning foursomes at the Ryder Cup, and he has gotten off to a bad start in the afternoon foursomes. He said he checked on her condition after his round and had not heard any update from Ryder Cup officials.

It is the only match the Americans are leading. Johnson and Fowler closed out their four-ball match against McIlroy and Thorbjorn Olesen after 16 holes on Friday.

"I can accept that, that's really no big deal. But from 300 yards, even if none of us said fore, she's going to get hit, and that's the unfortunate thing". He also moved closer to the Ryder Cup record in foursomes. They won a few holes on the bak for some window dressing to make it a still-pathetic 5&4 loss.

And, unwittingly, Woods and Reed provided it for a staggered European team. "I'll make par and that should free you up to be a little more aggressive and make birdie'". "I think winning last week was very exciting".

The U.S., seeking a first overseas win in 25 years, had the better of a topsy-turvy fourballs session, with Spieth particularly impressive when he and Thomas beat Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton 1-up. It seems just about every week we're hitting somebody, and you know, it's unfortunate. "Sometimes you get a good kick".
