Golf – Ryder Cup ’18 Day 2: Europe In The Lead
With only four and a half points from a conceivable 12 to recover the Ryder Cup, Day 2 certainly belonged to Europe, who dominated at the Le Golf National.
The overnight lead of 5-3 was extended, as Europe turned out charging on another fresh, clear-blue French morning to take 3 points from four in the day’s fourballs and build up a 8-4 lead, only 24 hours in the wake of being 3-0 down.
Roused by the splendid fellowship between Open hero Francesco Molinari and debutant Tommy Fleetwood, Thomas Bjorn’s men at that point anchored 2 of the 4 points on offer toward the evening to hold a 10-6 lead.
I’ve decided that I’d like a USA vs Europe competition of some sort every weekend. Somebody should make that happen. I’m enjoying the random bursts of patriotism I’m feeling in my loins every time an American does something good in this Ryder Cup.

The US came into this Ryder Cup as top picks, chasing their first win on outside soil in 25 years. However, with 14½ points required to win back the trophy, European skipper Bjorn knows his group currently have a superb possibility.
Just twice in the past 41 stagings of this biennial occasion have a team originate from 4 points down coming into the last day singles to win – the US at Brookline in 1999 and Europe at Medinah six years back.

The USA Ryder Cup Team hasnt won in over 25 years on European soil. They will need a Ben Crenshaw-like miracle tomorrow to break that embarrassing streak. Can they do it in singles matches Sunday? Eur 10 – USA 6.
