Terrible pairings by Crazy Padraig. Not that it would have mattered much the way they actually played.

I'd be playing Hovland before plenty of others, he played pretty well in the 4some and the 4ball.

Hatton was going like a busted arse but when the heat was on produced some super strikes the last two holes. He improved the greater the pressure so perhaps he should be given a shot in both 4 balls tomorrow.

Harrington has favoured the Irish to his detriment. McIlroy has been woeful. Lowry not much better.

Jeez Thomas was annoying too with his over the top celebrations. They really shouldn't have got the tie, a couple of missed short putts kept them in it. He should be 0-2.

Well that sucked.

Rahm the only European who looked like matching it with the Yanks.

Rory dropped for the first time in years, Poulter also sitting out two in a row. May well be over by lunchtime tomorrow.

How did Casey get another crack? Played poorly yesterday. Would have preferred Poulter get a crack

The Euros can’t make a 10-15 foot putt to save themselves the last 2 days. Westwood, Casey, Hovland, Rory… they just can’t hole anything. Run it close but can’t hole it.

I wouldn’t have Westwood and Casey out there in foursomes. They’re not good enough putters. He’s done it twice now silly Padraig.

What a terrible morning foursomes performance by the Euros the first 2 days - especially by the English players. Can’t hole anything that’s 8-10 feet out to 20. Nothing. Particularly Westwood who should never have been played in the foursomes. Him and Fitzpatrick terrible. Casey ordinary. And how did Hovland and Wiesberger lose their match like that ? Fell apart on the greens as well, on the back 9. Most non impactful Euro putting display I’ve seen in a long time.

Spaniards the only ones with any game.

Frustrating thing is, the Americans aren’t playing out of their skin. They’ve just been ok. Otherwise the Euros just can’t get anything going at all and are handing it to them.

Time to watch the four balls now.

Rahm aside, I've barely seen a European player make a putt of consequence over any sort of length.

Lowry made one of the few on 18 but the overwhelming majority of those moments have passed with barely a whimper.

Awful performance and yet it wouldn't surprise me if it still gets tight tomorrow.
