Ryder Cup - All you need to know

It looked tiring to have to play golf like that for three days.

He's just as comfortable being Public Enemy No. 1 at the Ryder Cup.

And then Europe finished even better.

Europe's Ian Poulter, rear, jokes with Europe's Tommy Fleetwood before the European Ryder Cup team photo at Le Golf National in Guyancourt, outside Paris, France, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018. Of those seven previous Ryder Cups, I've sat out one session, and that was at Medinah. "We came here to win something else". Both Spieth and Thomas did so with taped wrists. European captain Thomas Bjorn arrived late last week, as did a few of his players. "But we respect our opponents and know what we are up against". It has reason to feel like one in France with such a loaded lineup the Americans offer. It was his fantastic fortune that turned the tide in the morning.

Jon Rahm is not one of those rookies.

Also on the ballot were five candidates for rookie of the year, with Aaron Wise the likely victor because he was the only player to win a PGA Tour event (AT&T Byron Nelson) and reach the Tour Championship.

I don't think he'll care what the Americans are putting together.

"And we had a run at it and it was a blast because I had to beat Rory head-up in the final group".

"Once I got on to that first tee at Celtic Manor on Friday morning, I thought, "Oh, this is a little different than I expected".

"I've been excited for this basically since the last day in Hazeltine when we weren't the ones spraying champagne for a change", McIlroy said.

Furyk tried to see the big picture.

The 22-year-old Barquin Arozamena was killed last week while practicing at a course near Iowa State, where she was a champion player and finishing up her degree in civil engineering. "We are not happy with it".


"I look at this week as very important going forward for next season", Spieth said. By the end of the day, the Americans were seeing blue, and plenty of it. You can't second guess it; it's not worth the effort and you'll just get yourself into trouble.

The 42-year-old languished as low as 1,199 in golf's world rankings less than a year ago following spinal fusion surgery, but completed a remarkable comeback at East Lake.

Right behind them, McIlroy recovered from his terrible morning by joining forces with European stalwart Poulter, who lived up to his reputation.

"This year's Ryder Cup is set to be a thriller with both the European and U.S sides looking incredibly strong", said Ross Marshall CEO of Your Golf Travel. "They are trying to do the best they can to brace themselves and get ready for the battle".

That doesn't mean Europe can play without care. What can the Americans learn about the course before play tees off on Friday compared to what the European players have absorbed over year after year of tackling it in tournament conditions?

Finau also isn't a great putter.

"We don't fear anyone because we've played against them so many times before individually", Bjorn said. "This is the one week we're allowed to let loose and show our emotions".

Tyrrell Hatton is hoping he doesn't turn into the Hulk.

American captain Jim Furyk has poured cold water on the idea that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson could play together in the Ryder Cup this week after the two players got tongues wagging on Tuesday by suggesting it could happen.

They were 2 up until Molinari and Fleetwood went to work with a pair of Molinari birdies to tie the match, a pair of Fleetwood birdies to take the lead, and one last birdie putt from Molinari to finish them off. Because of water surrounding the green, Woods told Reed he would lay up and make 4 to at least stay in the hole. "Those were the matches that swing", Woods said.

There are five in the team and they fall into two camps.
