The Europeans swept the Americans in Friday’s afternoon foursome matches to take a 5-3 lead after the opening day of the Ryder Cup. Team USA looked pretty good after taking three out of four points in the morning fourballs, but then they just completely tanked it in the afternoon session.
Phrases I hate hearing: There’s a lot of golf left; Can’t believe the captain paired player x and x (Bryson and Phil re: today; not that I don’t agree) together. Why did captain bench player x (Captain America Patrick Reed)? Well, that’s the problem with democracy.
