Ryder Cup: Day 2 Predictions for All 4 Morning Matches

The 2018 Ryder Cup

The 2018 Ryder Cup

The good news for Mickelson, of course, is that he'll be participating in Sunday's Singles, which will be his 12th Singles match.

The Team Europe duo were two up after two holes and McIlroy made a fine putt on the third for a halve.

He played well in defeat alongside Hatton in Friday's fourballs, making five birdies in a 1-up loss to Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

After McIlroy and Thomas get the action under way at 11.05am, Paul Casey will tackle Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose will face Webb Simpson and Jon Rahm will go up against Tiger Woods. "We are so well aware of what's standing across on the other side - the greatest players in the world".

'We just need to keep going. He's played a total of 36 matches over eight appearances but won only 13.

For the second straight day, Finau was both kept out of the foursomes (alternate shot) play in the afternoon.

The performance of "Captain America" for the flailing U.S. Ryder Cup team has been anything but patriotic this week in France. "His pace looked a little bit slow walking", US captain Jim Furyk said.

"We ran against two guys that were both playing well and when one was out of the hole, especially in best-ball, the other one made birdie and vice versa".

Before the matches began, Reed, addressing how he relishes his role as the villain with the European players and their fans, said, "I think the biggest thing is I know it's playfulness". The foursome matches on day one were an absolute disaster for the USA team, who were swept in foursomes for the first time in history.

As it turned out, Saturday turned into another 5-3 drubbing, which added to the first-day issues makes for the largest singles deficit to overcome in Ryder Cup history.

The federal judge, for his part, has denied the claims and said he has no recollection of any such party or incident. It feels like a grave understatement to say her testimony is triggering painful flashbacks for survivors nationwide.

McIlroy and Poulter won the first two holes against an out-of-sorts Spieth and Thomas, but the Americans soon found their range and took four out of five holes from the fourth.

After silencing Woods with a stunning victory in the Friday fourballs they met America's talisman in both Saturday's sessions and beat him comfortably, securing the points with three holes to spare in the morning when he was partnered for a second time by Patrick Reed and four to spare when Bryson DeChambeau then joined the 14-times major victor here at Le Golf National.

It was the second time in as many Ryder Cups in Europe that Mickelson, who holds the Ryder Cup record with 12 appearances, did not play on Saturday.

And they extended their ideal Ryder Cup record in the afternoon with a 5 and 4 foursomes victory over Woods and Bryson DeChambeau in the afternoon. "And then we didn't do anything from there", said Woods, who will again meet Molinari and Fleetwood in the afternoon foursomes with Bryson DeChambeau.

As for Woods, he's already felt the sting of the Molinari-Fleetwood pairing.

"Everything feels pretty good", Woods said when asked about how his body is holding up.

Also on Sunday, Tiger Woods will play in his 37th career Ryder Cup match. Woods, coming off an inspiring victory at the Tour Championship for his first title since his litany of back surgeries, has looked flat in the Paris suburbs.

"If we can get two or three points early, it gets to be quiet and uneasy around here".

But the Europeans should be able to rest a little easier in the team room Saturday night.
