At Whistling Straits, Wisconsin, the US Extends Their Ryder Cup Lead Over Europe To 9-3

Posted by

After losing Saturday’s foursomes 3-1, Europe’s chances of regaining the Ryder Cup were dealt another blow, as they trailed the United States by a record 9-3 after three sessions in Wisconsin.
Europe’s lone winners were Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia, who came back from three holes down to beat Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger 3&1.

Garcia’s individual points count now stands at 2712, and he has now won 24 matches, more than any other player. It was again another session in which Europe was as bad as the Americans on the Whistling Straits greens, and every player on the home team contributed to their total.

Justin Thomas, who won a point in the foursomes with his friend Jordan Spieth, celebrated by downing a can of beer and spraying the rest on the first tee, much to the amusement of the already ecstatic American fans waiting for the fourballs session to begin.

The Americans won their third consecutive session, 3-1, with four fourball matches remaining on Saturday. On Sunday, there will be 12 singles matches, with the US requiring 141 points to reclaim the Cup.
