American stars seek European success in the Ryder Cup | Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

"What would make me nervous?"

"I took Tour Championship week to slowly progress each day, do a little bit more, and I was progressing nicely", Spieth said. If it was the middle of the season, I would have looked at it like a blessing in disguise.

"If I came out and played really solid golf this week, I would feel like I accomplished a lot this year".

Now it's time to play.

The pairings were announced at Thursday's opening ceremony in bright, late afternoon sunshine at the course just outside Paris as France proudly hosts the event for the first time.

Tommy Fleetwood, shown during a practice round for the Ryder Cup on Tuesday, is one of the five rookies on the European team this weekend who don't kn.

Instead, he let playing partners Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas take their shots and walked down the fairway with them.

Jordan Spieth spoke minutes later and said he had no idea what Watson was talking about. But we really need to understand the personality side and how guys mesh together and why that happens.

Tiger Woods: No competitive rounds at Le Golf National.

(7.55am BST): Open champion Francesco Molinari and rookie Tommy Fleetwood are up against Patrick Reed, self-styled "Captain America", and a revitalised 14-time major victor Tiger Woods.

Rahm played a practice round with McIlroy yesterday and the duo are expected to be paired together when the competition gets going on Friday morning. Right before teeing off, especially on a week like this, it's easy to get caught up looking at the stands and the people and what's going on and forget what you're here for in the first place. The first team to 14.5 points wins the Ryder Cup, while the United States will retain the trophy as defending champions should the contest end 14-14.

The Ryder Cup, that's just like the Open or the Masters, then?

Though Finau and DeChambeau were given their first Ryder Cup call-ups as two of Jim Furyk's four additional selections, this year's wild cards otherwise have a hugely experienced look. He brings so much in that team room. He is 4-1 with two drawn in Sunday singles but has eight losses in both foursomes (alternate shot) and four-ball (best-ball) pairs formats.

Rahm said: "We have amusing moments".

Paul Casey: Played in the French Open just twice and missed the cut in 2012 after back-to-back rounds of 80.

Referring to Rahm, he added: "He definitely has the fire of a Seve [Ballesteros]".

Eventually. Europe lost their first three contests but in 1985 they finally broke the run and the team from this side of the Atlantic lifted the trophy for just the second time since the war, claiming their first win on U.S. soil two years later.

Pressure is unlike any other event in golf, with 28 matches held over three days, relentless action before partisan cheering.

If you're wondering what the big deal is, it's that the fans are going to be loud and amped up for the first Ryder Cup to be played on European soil in four years.

Woods was still in high school. "If I've played a tournament and I know I've been bad, you're at home cringing on the sofa watching it". Still stinging is the rude treatment, endless cheering and the champagne celebration for the Americans two years ago.

Every two years, particularly when Europe win, the question arises about whether their ability to bond on and off the course is superior to the Americans and if so, why and how much it matters. "I think the one thing that you can say about both of us is that we are both fearless".

For the scores, the most popular bets are Europe by 14.5-13.5 ($13) and the USA winning 14.5-13.5 ($11). Playing at home is wonderful for the fans.
