Molinari & Fleetwood MVP for the European team this morning...

they just saved the honor of the Old Continent and gave the team a bit of hope before the Foursome matches of the afternoon, where they will be the closing pair once again (and this time they're going to face the best US duo, Thomas & Spieth, who easily beat McIlroy and Olesen this morning...

and frankly I just can't understand why this McIlroy is still playing also this afternoon (this time paired with Ian Poulter)...:facepalm:

wow! what a turnaround! Europe just won all 4 Foursome matches of the afternoon (last time a team won all 4 matches of a Friday/Saturday session between both contenders -and it was still the European team, but in Fourballs- was in 1989 at The Belfry) and now lead 5-3 at the end of day #1...:cheer:

tbh, it was more the US duo (especially Mickelson) playing really bad ("Lefty" was just walking around with hands in his pockets when not throwing)...

 

more in general, I think the US made a lot of "tactical" mistakes in building this afternoon's pairings...and they paid a very big prize for that...

Does this flag mean that all members must be from European Union? :p

I agree with you that Mickelson seems like he doens't really care about this competition. 

 

But having 5 birdies in 9 holes is still pretty good on this course. ;)

If that was the case, Team Europe would be screwed. If UK was already out of EU, things would be pretty tough for Team Europe...:p

sure...

even if today it wasn't so punishing, as fairways and greens had been softened by the night rain and wind didn't play a decisive role...

maybe tomorrow the course condition changes and it's gonna be more difficult for all the players...:mumble:

 

p.s. watching all that crowd following the players and that landscape is just amazing...I love the Ryder Cup (and Le Golf National)...

Molinari and Fleetwood are only the 3rd couple to be unbeaten through 4 matches. Palmer/Dickinson (1967 and 71)  won 5 in a row while Nicklaus/Watson being 4-0.

yeah, they've been great in these 2 days...they really match well together...

but honestly, they've been helped a lot by a disastrous Patrick Reed on both their fourball matches and by a tired and frustrated Tiger in today's foursome match...

 

however, image.png.9e49e4211f97ca76f5db72c8361fbf62.png Europe lead 10-6 after day #2, with only the 12 singles remaining (tomorrow)...
