Might as well give the trophy to the USA now then if reading the thread - it’s done and dusted 🙄
I like a bit of tongue in cheek, and you know as well as I do that past years have often dispelled the myth that they can't play foursomes, and we always get stuffed at 4BBB.

If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the European Ryder Cup captain, he'd just select the same 4 pairings for today's foursomes :)

At least Harrington will find it easier to give everyone a game before the singles, easy to drop people and mix pairings

I think since 2006 we have been behind every time bar Medinah - 3-1 at Paris I think it was. Always seem to have a few have stinkers to start

Would quite fancy Justin Rose & Alex Noren coming in this afternoon! The US have outplayed us at our apparent strength. They played really well. Glad I'm not stuck down the left on the the 17th. At least we have one point!

The apparent strength at foursomes is a bit of myth when looking at the results over the last 6 or so Ryder cups

Hopefully a quick one, without having to hit the Rules forum to display my ignorance and trigger a 6 page argument...
Why did Berger putt before Westwood? His putt looked much closer.

He should have rested JT not Jordan 🤷🏼 And why rest Colin Morikawa?!

Also breaking up Xander / Cantalay seems dumb 🤷🏼

Padraig throwing the dice. May as well. Guess Sergio has to be rested so fair enough. No issue with those pairings at all. On paper I reckon Stricker is making the errors here but let’s see if Europe are strong enough to capitalise

Speith missed a few putts he'd never miss, I don't think that's a bad drop, I'd have dropped both of them.

Good captaincy from Padraig giving everyone a game today, a mistake often made by others, Mark James the worst culprit.

Don’t like the look of some of those football matches. Another 3 points to the USA. Hope I’m wrong but I only fancy Rahm & Hatton from that.
