They got off to a bad start yesterday evening at the opening ceremony when they turned up in what looked like their dressing gowns. I thought then they were doomed to fail.

Thought the team selections were weird, too. Pedersen gives me Nick Faldo vibes. How do you leave Munoz out of the team in Spain, and pick all the Scandinavians?

Did I hear correctly - five rookies in the U.S. Solheim team?
And Luke Donald excludes an in-form Pole for the Ryder team?  What a mistake.

Why not mention the big positives? Ciganda was under huge pressure in her home country and the result hung on how she played the last holes and she was brilliant.  It was an away match for every player apart from her so apart from the time difference it was as alien a course to the Swedes as it was to the Americans. Hall was really poor and had numerous chances to win her match easily but seemed completely overawed by the occasion. Maguire was always in control and Hedwall finished really well so plenty to be positive about.
Report GoBallistic September 25, 2023 10:36 AM BST
I enjoyed the event but let's be honest - a draw in a home game is a disappointment.

They should really change the rules in these team events so that the away team takes the trophy in the case of a draw.

Lfc is a know-all who polutes the politics forum and is well known as the village idiot. He claims that he is a golfer so you'd expect hime to be pleased with todays performance. but he obviously has a problem with supporting a team with name 'Europe'.If you want to know how stupid he is check him out on the Chit Chat forum where he served his village idiot apprenticeship, particularly on the Trump thread.

Not over yet but the USA need a clean sweep this afternoon to have a realistic chance tomorrow. I don't agree that it is no longer worth watching. There are some world class shots and some close matches even if the overall score is one sided. John Rahm has been really special at crunch points.
Report Clerkmore September 30, 2023 12:59 PM BST
Strange decision by Donald to bench Rahm and bring in a couple of no hopers. If US win this session 4-0 they are back in it. Rahm didn't seem too enamoured by the decision in his interview.
Report sageform September 30, 2023 1:50 PM BST
It did make sense in that Rahm would only have had an hour break. Hovland has been almost faultless in 3 sessions yet is hopeless this afternoon so hard to predict how any of them will react to having to play twice. Spieth seems to be just getting his eye in at last so I fear him in the singles.

Europe dominant after being hammered in the US last time out. Yes some players have changed but really shows how much advantage to playing at home.

Have to say though on that point, some of the home 'fans' have been embarrassing to say the least - shouts of "get in the water", jeering at players etc etc. Getting as bad as the American fans.
