I said yesterday that Darren Clarke might forget that Wood and Fitz are on the team until Sunday.

Could be a good shout GPB, but why would DC ignore Fitz? Such a strong start to his career and deserves the chance to show that he is better than the old guard like Westie and Sergio at the moment.

Amazing Phil and Fowler won. They hardly hit a fairway.

Terrible opening putt by Rose, but wonder why the Europeans seem to be over-reading so many putts? Not just one or two of them but seemingly the lot of 'em.

Pedro,
Pieters and Westwood missed every front nine fairway, dunno after that. Didn't look as if Sergio & Kaymer were hitting many either.

When the best of the European team were practising and weren't able to read the green, then that guy from the crowd said he could do better, and he did, with his putt going straight into the hole - I thought that was a bad omen for the European team.

Thomas Pieters looks like he's full of pent-up energy/frustration. Looks like he'd explode if he and Rory could get on a roll.

Has DL3 asked for the greens to be extra quick? I have always thought American players are a little better when the green speeds are on the high end.

Wouldn't say they look especially fast, Mac. He definitely ordered the rough to be cut down.

A bit of life in the European dog at last - nice to see Rose and Stenson come alive.

John,
The boys were right, they played well tee-to-green this morning, just didn't make anything - then Reed & Spieth got very ragged this afternoon.

Some redemption now, and TRUSSMAN has stfu. Can't get much better than that.

If this were a strokeplay week you get the feeling Kaymer wouldn't be making the cut, and by quite some distance. No idea what he did this morning to get played again in the afternoon.

The pick that DC didn't really want to make is the only one worth playing.

Pieters, Stenson and McIlroy the best among the Europeans.

In the Euro team room there's a WWII quote from Churchill. Don't know how inspirational that is for a German... Kaymer for sure stunk the place out. And ironic that 4 English were benched in the afternoon.

That Westwood "Lifetime Achievement Nepotism Pick" is looking SWEET! Probably benched for both sessions tomorrow.

/Rant Over Very Happy

Good exciting day of matches. Great play from the Yanks in the morning. and Great Play from the Euros in the afternoon.

Wouldn't be surprise to see Holmes, Kaymer, Moore joining Westwood on the PINE BENCH tomorrow.

Got to say the Golf Channel Production was TERRIBLE!!! Really Bad. Lots of important shots not shown. And some of the comical shots also not shown like Pieters (alleged) 60yd shot that went 160 yds.

The TV feed we get in Europe is different from the GC/NBC and I thought it was ok. The occasional missed shot, but surprisingly Tiger-free. I suppose the latter wasn't the case in the US though..

First putt of any length that Rors made in two rounds, good for him.

Nice to see the Euros who haven't been playing much recently slowly warming up - only real exceptions are lw1 and Martin Kaymer.

Danny Willett made some birds and Rafa looked like he'd been playing this stuff for years. A good afternoon, all things considered.

But would say that DC needs to keep his cards close to his chest for Saturday's foursomes and hope the boys come to play.

Ah ha, The Saturday foursomes: Dangerous to split up Rose and Stenson don't you think? Would like to have seen Willett back out there, and Andy Sullivan has been very unlucky, paying as much for Rory's poor play as his own mistakes.. But it's now all about Just Win Baby.
Kaymer and Westwood have let DC down, so hopefully they can redeem themselves in the singles.

Pretty much Tiger free here too in the actual coverage. There were a few commercial promos of TW playing the Safeway in a few weeks though. TW's doing the right thing this week... staying mostly behind the scenes and not allowing the focus to be on him.

Agree, Lots more of TW on the foursomes coverage when they were talking about his intimidation factor to the Europeans, than in the afternoon when the Euros were actually winning.

Also thought the coverage we got was OK, though Johnny Miller can't help himself with a few Drumpfisms, extolling US virtues and knocking Europeans. Can't understand why NBC can't have a foot soldier following each of four matches, especially w/Maltbie apparently benched this afternoon. Feherty unusually subdued, not necessarily a bad thing.

Notah Begay (thankfully) has been M-I-A this week from the GC coverage Both on the course and on the Pre and Post game shows.

Apparently he is Tiger's designated Cart driver according to this media tweet.

Is Tiger still without his licence? Poor thing.

Big first match Saturday w/Rickie & Phil vs Rors & Pieters - could set the tone for the whole day.

Mickelson is 3-0 against Rory in RC Matches

Mickelson/Fowler beat Rory/Sullivan today (1 Up, 4-somes)
Mickelson/Bradley beat Rory/Sergio at Gleneagles (1 Up, 4-Ball, Day 1)
Mickelson/Bradley beat Rory/GMac at Medinah (2&1, 4-ball, Day 1)

I'm not sure I understand the European foursomes pairing. Admittedly it can't be worse than yesterday but I looks like a gamble to pair Rose and Stenson with Wood and Fitz.

Smart move....Maybe Fitzpatrick and Wood will be hot...If they are they can play in the afternoon games..

Be a waste if Clarke doesnt play them and sees one of them hit 7 under in the afternoon....

This way he knows who the best 8 of the 12 are for the final games..

Better they have a calming influence with them too....Garcia and Mcilroy already have rookies.

Good call me thinks by Clarke.

See the US have got their Rugby shirts out TRUSS.
As Mark James used to say, "The only thing I'm scared of with the American Team is their clothes". It's OK, it's the same here in VT.

All a bit tight, Reed and Spieth playing out of their skins.

Rory and team letting FIGJAM back in the match ... at the moment.

Mark James has a nice dry sense of humour.

2 - 2 at the moment, the opening match here is huge, Phil playing pretty well, bailing Rickie out. Can't imagine he'll be back out this afternoon.

Weird how well Reed and Spieth are playing in foursomes, brilliantly would be a better word, yet they were pretty poor in fourball. Hope DC keeps the Armada together - think I'd send straight back out, opening the batting.
EDIT: Cancel that idea! Still keep 'em together though. They've played well again.

Does Kaymer have a sex tape of DC tucked away in a safe somewhere?

Astonishing to see DC put him in again and chuck away another point.

Also a bit surprised to see the Willett and Westwood pairing. Both badly out of form.

I know you are wumming but as I said it is very strange to see Westwood and Kaymer out there. I guess DC feels the need to justify his picks. I am certainly missing what those two have to offer at the moment.

Also, anyone else notice Rory's dig at phil in hist post match interview.

Rory said something like "we didn't practice together or discuss what ball to use". In reference to Phil's bitching about Hal.
