Scoreboard doesnt look good

Got to hand it to the us players - 20 birdies in Foursomes is just outstanding and they have spent all afternoon sinking putts whilst not many European putts have dropped

Got to hope Tommy and Hovland hang on and Rahm and Hatton get something from their match

They could struggle to get 5 points here :oops:
I would be still confident they can do that. I just couldnt see them not getting 3 matches in the singles. They are outgunned, but in golf you just wont lose 10 or 11 matches from 12. So assuming a half from Fleetwood now, that would still leave them having as bad a day tomorrow as today, get another 1 1/2, and get the 5 or maybe half more with 3 points from the singles. But yes, 22-6 looks about the limitm and 22 1/2 - 5 1/2 the likely outcome.

The only hope to be honest. 5 and a half v 2 and a half after the woeful day would be a result. Fully expect a big fightback in the foursomes tomorrow morning.

I genuinely feel for the European players. With no support to feed off it must be incredibly difficult to rise to the occasion. I genuinely see no way back into this - with no fans to interact with I just don’t see how the likes of Poulter in particular can get out of first gear.

The crowds and the drama make this event what it is. Sorry, but not sure I’ll be watching beyond today.
The women managed it in the Solheim Cup.

Though I have to agree...compared to the Solheim the crowd participation does seem remarkably flat.

It'll swing back tomorrow, too much quality in the side. Harrington has some big calls to make though. A bad foursome session and it's goodnight. A good one and it's game on.

I can't believe Casey is playing again. I never saw him give his partner anything...no fist bumps, no encouragement - nothing. A couple of times Wiesberger walked towards him and Casey just walked off with his caddy.

Or maybe it's just because I don't like him very much!

Agreed, can’t believe he’s out again although our choices are limited! Hatton will have a sore back carrying him round! Casey is as dull as dishwater, he’s not a team player in my opinion - although Hatton effing and jeffing at him might liven him up a bit 😄

They didn’t play too badly at all… they just putted really badly and the USA team putted well.
I agree. It does irk me a little when I see Tommy using that putting style of his.
No wonder he misses so many short ones. How can you swing very short and keep on line with that grip ?
While the team is over there , perhaps they need to talk to / try L A B putters which allegedly eliminates torque😉?? ( TIC)
