The singles matches fluctuated as Team USA started to post positive results at the top of the order taking 3.5 points out of the first five on offer.  Unfortunately their middle order could not keep that momentum and that was enough to get Team Europe over the line.  Team USA picked up just one more point out of the last seven matches.  Davie, Kwinigolfer, Owen10ozzy, and Super_Realist all picked Team Europe to win but not by that winning margin.  Predictions had the winning margin from one to four points.

Francesco Molinari was the only player to win all five matches; Tommy Fleetwood lost his singles match while Justin Thomas was beaten in the day one foursomes for them to finish with four wins and one loss.  No one picked Molinari as the hero for Europe but Davie, I'm Never Wrong, and Owen10ozzy selected Thomas as the Team USA hero.

Every player in Team Europe won a match and three tied for the lowest points achieved.  Jon Rahm and Thorbjorn Olesen both won their singles matches while Tyrrell Hatton's win came in the day two fourballs.  All three were picked as the weak link in Team Europe.  Davie, Raycastleunited, Robopz, Super_Realist, and WireTapper all picked one of those three players.

Team USA had three players, Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, and Tiger Woods, failing to register a point.  Mickelson was the popular choice with Eyetoldyouso, GPB, Kwinigolfer, I'm Never Wrong, and WireTapper.   DeChambeau was also chosen as a villain by AlciG.  No one picked Tiger. 

Davie's correct results and hero and villain predictions were enugh to hold off Owen10ozzy and Super_Realist who also had the correct win but not enough hero and villain predictions.

Day two saw a reverse in the morning fourballs as Europe took that session 3-1 extending their overall lead.  The afternoon foursomes session was split and the day ended with the score 10-6 to Europe. 

Kwinigolfer correctly predicted that was how the match would stand after day two taking maximum points.  Davie, Owen10ozzy, Raycastleunited, and Super_Realist still had Europe with a lead going into the singles.  No one else troubled the scorers.

Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari maintained their perfect record for Europe with four wins out of four.  Jon Rahm and the non playing Thorbjorn Olesen are still to earn their first point.

Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth were the shining lights for the US side winning both their matches on day two.  Bryson DeChambeau, Tiger Woods, Patrick Reed, and Phil Mickelson are still to register a point.

After the US team took the morning fourballs 3-1 it was not looking good for Europe but a dominant afternoon foursomes session turned things on their head.  Europe takes a two point lead into the second day.

Four Fantasy Leaguers picked Europe to have the day one lead and three of them also predicted the score to be 5-3.  Davie, Owen10ozzy, and Super_Realist had a good crystal ball as they take maximum points from day one.  Raycastleunited tipped Europe to be ahead after day one but got the score wrong.  GPB predicted the score would be 5-3 to the USA. 

Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari lead the way for Europe having won both their day one matches.  Jon Rahm, Tyrrell Hatton, and Thorbjorn Olesen all lost their opening matches and didn't play in the afternoon session.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, and Tony Finau all have one point from the morning matches.  The rest are still to achieve a positive result.

The Ryder Cup returns to Continental Europe 21 years after Spain's Valderama hosted the event. 

Two strong teams will be in action; 17 of the top 18 players in the world are in attendance.  The only player missing is the ineligible Jason Day.  Jim Furyk leads Team USA four years after his last appearance at Gleneagles.  His team is lead by world number one Dustin Johnson, has an average ranking of 11, and his lowest ranked player is Phil Mickelson at 25.

Thomas Bjorn leads Team Europe and was also a match competitor at Gleneagles.  Justin Rose leads Team Europe ranked second in the world, has an average ranking of 19, and has four players ranked lower than Phil Mickelson. 

This year Fantasy Leaguers will need to think carefully if they are to bring home the Ryder Cup.  The competition is as follows:
_____________________________________________________________________

1. Pick the Result

Pick overall result: Euro win / Tie / USA win (15 points)
Pick correct match score: example 14.5 - 13.5 (15 points)

If you choose the Tie you automatically get 14 - 14 as the match score.

2. Pick the End of Day 1 Score
Pick Day 1 result: Euro lead / Tie / USA lead (10 points)


Pick correct Day 1 score: example 4.5 - 3.5 (10 points)
Correct result and score combo: example US 4.5 - Euro 3.5 (20 points)

If you choose the Tie you automatically get 4 - 4 as the Day 1 score.

3. Pick the End of Day 2 Score

Pick Day 2 result: Euro lead / Tie / USA lead (10 points)
Pick correct Day 2 score: example 10 - 6 (10 points)
Correct result and score combo: example US 10 - Euro 6 (20 points)

If you choose the Tie you automatically get 8 - 8 as the Day 2 score.

4. Pick your Europe Ryder Cup Hero and Villain

Pick your Hero (Top points scorer): One Player from Europe (10 points)
Pick your Villain (Lowest points scorer): One Player from Europe (10 points)

Simpson Robo? Are you serious? Surely he's the weakest player on the team, even weaker than Baghdad, Florida and Mickelson

Unofficial day 2 results

Kwini correctly picked the day 2 result with Europe leading 10-6. He moves up into a tie for fourth with Ray who had the European team leading after day 2. Davie, Owen, and Super stay atop of the leaderboard after picking Europe to be in the lead.

How does GPB get 10 points for predicting USA 5-3 lead after day 1? That is so dodgy!! Laugh Laugh

In the scheme of things it really doesn't matter.... I'm just glad my overall prediction was wrong Very Happy

He said the score was going to be 5-3, which was correct, but unfortunately for him it was not the way he wanted/expected.

5-3 and 3-5 are not the same!

But I'm happy with your generosity to GPB.

The singles matches fluctuated as Team USA started to post positive results at the top of the order taking 3.5 points out of the first five on offer.  Unfortunately their middle order could not keep that momentum and that was enough to get Team Europe over the line.  Team USA picked up just one more point out of the last seven matches.  Davie, Kwinigolfer, Owen10ozzy, and Super_Realist all picked Team Europe to win but not by that winning margin.  Predictions had the winning margin from one to four points.

Francesco Molinari was the only player to win all five matches; Tommy Fleetwood lost his singles match while Justin Thomas was beaten in the day one foursomes for them to finish with four wins and one loss.  No one picked Molinari as the hero for Europe but Davie, I'm Never Wrong, and Owen10ozzy selected Thomas as the Team USA hero.

Every player in Team Europe won a match and three tied for the lowest points achieved.  Jon Rahm and Thorbjorn Olesen both won their singles matches while Tyrrell Hatton's win came in the day two fourballs.  All three were picked as the weak link in Team Europe.  Davie, Raycastleunited, Robopz, Super_Realist, and WireTapper all picked one of those three players.

Team USA had three players, Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, and Tiger Woods, failing to register a point.  Mickelson was the popular choice with Eyetoldyouso, GPB, Kwinigolfer, I'm Never Wrong, and WireTapper.   DeChambeau was also chosen as a villain by AlciG.  No one picked Tiger. 

Davie's correct results and hero and villain predictions were enugh to hold off Owen10ozzy and Super_Realist who also had the correct win but not enough hero and villain predictions.
