    And Watson/Simpson go 1 up after 1. The other 2 matches are all square.

    Questionable pairings by Furyk in the afternoon matches...US getting spanked early....

    Afternoon session looking ugly.

    I don’t get playing Phil in alternate shot. He’s been struggling the last week or so. Simpson and Watson is another strange pairing....

    What a disaster this afternoon.

    Gonna need Patrick Reed to come out in full bald eagle outfit tomorrow and turn this around.

    2018 Ryder Cup results, scores: Standings, scoring after Day 1 as Europe storms back to lead

    The U.S. took a commanding lead on Friday ... until Europe routed the visitors down the stretch


    The United States Ryder Cup team has a problem. Actually, it has a lot of problems after getting smashed late on Day 1 in Paris by a European team that led for nearly the entire afternoon foursomes session. After two blowout sessions (one for each side), Europe leads the United States 5-3 after one day of action at the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Paris.

    After the U.S. nearly took all four matches in the morning fourballs, the Yanks wound up leading 3-1 entering the second wave of matches in the afternoon. The only Euros to put a point on the board in Session 1 were Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari, and they gave Europe as much momentum as you can have when you're trailing 3-1 (more on that in a bit).

    In the afternoon, Europe got its band back together and sent out lions Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter together as well as Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose. Sergio Garcia played with rookie Alex Noren, and Molinari and Fleetwood went out again. Collectively, those four pairings played 60 holes in the afternoon and trailed for just six of them. The result was arguably the most dominant session of golf in Ryder Cup history.

    The 4-0 sweep was Europe's first session sweep since 1989, and it made the Day 1 final tally 5-3 for the Euros. There's a long way to go, of course, but Europe looks to be in command after the first eight matches as it takes a 25-year winning streak on home soil into Saturday's repeat sessions of fourballs early and foursomes late.

    Seems like Furyk is wedded to certain pairings....

    Glad to see they picked up right where they left off yesterday. :shake:

    Someone needs to show up besides Spieth and Thomas. Woods continues to struggle at the Ryder Cup.

    I hope Furyk has some better pairings planned for the afternoon....

    Furyk is fucked, but of course they’ll be nice to him unlike Tom Watson. They’re dead before they even get to the Europe

    He’s put out some really stupid pairings. He’s lucky that Spieth and Thomas came to play or this would be a beat down of epic proportions....
