Europe needs to wake up fast at the Ryder Cup After a first day to forget, he opted for the United States (6-2). For this, Padraig Harrington entrusts himself to the Spanish couple: Sergio García and Jon Rahm. There is an unwritten rule in Ryder that says not to touch what works. And that’s what the captain has done. Borriol’s and Barrika’s achieved the only victory for the European team on the first day and They repeat training for the first game of the foursomes this Saturday, in search of the comeback.
The Spanish they beat the strongest American couple in the first meeting of this edition of the Ryder, the one formed by Justin Thomas y Jordan Spieth. Harrington is aware that you have to start winning or else things would get even more complicated, and he bets on Sergio and Jon to reverse the situation.
This time They will face Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger, a couple who also know what it’s like to win here. On Friday they beat Westwood and Fitzpatrick in the foursomes. The United States has repeated the training of the first day after the success obtained. Steve Stricker, captain of the North American team, has not warmed his head and has decided to bet on the same four pairs of the morning session on Friday changing the order of the games.
Rahm is the leader in Europe
The truth is Jon Rahm was the one who saved the ballot on the first day. The number one in the world served as such and put the team on his back. He won his morning duel with Sergio and in the afternoon he pulled the car so that Hutton ended up tying the game against Scheffler and De Chambeau with a birdie in the 18th, which was worth half a point. After losing the first two games and seeing how the United States put the 5-1 on the scoreboard, Barrika’s man took an incredible putt for a birdie and equalized their match. He knew that his grief was vital to staying alive and his hand did not tremble.
Secondly, Fleetwood and Hovland brushed victory against Thomas Cantlay. They came to be three up but the Americans reduced that difference thanks to a great Justin Thomas, who appeared when his team needed him most. In the end the victory escaped and they could only get a draw that gave another half point for Europe. So Rahm and Sergio’s is still the only match the Europeans have won so far. They are entrusted to them to add the third point of the Ryder and reduce distances.
After the Spanish it will be the turn of Casey y Hatton, who are facing Dustin Johnson y Morikawa. For the third match, Harrington bets on Hovland and Wiesberger to try to beat Spieth y Thomas. While Westwood y Fitzpatrick they will be the last to jump onto the green, where they will try to beat Schauffele y Cantlay. The European captain surprised by leaving Rory McIlroy, one of the team’s stars, on the bench. The Northern Irishman is not going through his best moment and although he played both games on Friday, he was not successful in any of them and that has left him out of the foursomes on Saturday.
