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.
Yep.

Geez Hovland is an ordinary putter. Hatton, Rory and Fleetwood badly out of form. Westwood diabolical on the greens too.

The Americans are hitting it all over the place but the Euros are so off their game they can’t make them pay. At least Spieth and Thomas have had a few beatings.

You're not wrong with Hovland, he couldn't even get them close enough to lip out. Needs to get his eyes checked.

Sergio grows a leg in the Ryder Cup.
Have been watching Harris English for a while, I reckon he's got a major in him, as has Scottie Scheffler.

Never realised the full extent of what a wanker Thomas is until this week.

I also always thought Rahm's putting was shaky but he has been a snake charmer this week.

Looking at the match-ups tomorrow, Europe loading up out the gate and will need Rory, Lowry, Rahm and Garcia to go bang early and hope that's enough to get the rest of them to tighten up. If not, it could be a 20 point plus US score and a humiliation.

Rahm and Scheffler playing each other in the singles, a couple of young bulls.
You'd have to go for Rahm, Scheffler wasn't bad, but wasn't at his best in the Fed Ex Cup playoffs. I've got a lot of time for him, and reckon he'll give Rahm a run for his money.

My man Scottie wiped the floor with Rahm.

I could've got $31 on him being 4 up after 4 holes. I looked at it, and was tempted.

Is there an uppercut emoji?

Hovland is a young star, reckon he'll bag a major before the likes of Sheffler & English.

The yanks have a formidable side, Europe needs to find some fresh blood.

Dunno if anyone noticed, and haven’t heard anyone mention this, but Paula Gretzky goes off her brain at Dustin Johnson over something at the end. Bit of a nutter/volatile relationship from what you hear.

i noticed her earlier storming around trying to get on camera, then at the end in the crowd of players and other WAGs, she totally goes off.

DJ was smashed in the group presser it was pretty funny. The yanks as a whole are pretty unlikeable. I reckon the only likeable ones are speith, morokowa and Johnson are likeable.

DJ and Xander were off their face on something. DJ had barely finished playing. Very weird. Lots of rumours about DJ.

That press conference was cringeworthy with all the corny schmaltzy crap. W’s and L’s …. Wtf ????

Not just rumours, hasn't he tested positive to recreational gear multiple times? Although they were sculling champagne and that will take you from 0-100 every time.

Interesting to see the emotion of McIlroy after the loss, not sure what to make of it.

Also interesting was the Euro presser, when several guys made 'I love these guys' type speeches and the team applauded and when Rory made one no-one applauded.

I think he’s formally tested positive once but there’s been suspicions the Tour has covered up one or two others. A few years ago he took a strange, 3 month break. The rumours though also extend to dalliances with other Tour players’ partners. Think he’s split from Paula once or twice. She’s pretty crazy herself.
