USA leads 11: 5
The US golfers are briefly before a clear triumph at 43. Ryder Cup. The European team needs the great wonder of whistling straits on the final day to defend the title against the favorite US stars. After two days, the team of Captain Padraig Harrington lies in the prestigious continental comparison on the Whistling Straits Golf Course in the US state of Wisconsin with 5:11 against the selection of the USA significantly back.
Hopefully we can get up again and bring you to sweat tomorrow afternoon.
It s not over yet, we still have to go out, and everyone has to play well, we still need three and a half points, said the American World Randlist Second Dustin Johnson. Of course it is disappointing that I could not contribute no point for the team, said the hitherto Luckless Nordire Rory Mcilroy. Hopefully we can get up again and bring you to sweat tomorrow afternoon.
On Saturday morning (local time), the US stars had won around 40,000 enthusiastic fans on the spectacular golf course on the shores of Michigansee with a new Gala presentation three of the four team duels and expanded their lead to 9: 3. The four afternoon matches ended 2: 2.
On Sunday, the Team of US Captain Steve Stricker needs only 3.5 points from the final twelve single matches to recall the Ryder Cup. The Europeans need nine points for title defense. At a 14:14, the team from Europe would be allowed to keep the trophy.
Europe hopes for a catch-up like 2012
Thus, the starting position before the final day for Europeans is a little worse than nine years ago at the Ryder Cup in Medinah. In 2012, they seemed seemingly hopeless with 6:10 in front of the twelve single matches. But at the end, the Europeans grew beyond themselves. In the end, Germany s Golfstar Martin Kaymer, with his winning Putt, made the wonder of Medinah to 14.5: 13.5 success perfectly.
But the US stars do not want to leave the US stars on Sunday. At the US Americans, Dustin Johnson was the best point collector on the first two days. The world ranking second won all four games in which he was used.
The European selection was not able to start the big catching up on Saturday morning in the first four team duels. Captain Harrington renounced in the morning on his luckless Star Mcilroy. The Nordire was not nominated for a session for the first time in his Ryder Cup career after the four-time major winner had lost both games on the opening day. In the afternoon, Mcilroy was back with him, but had to put a defeat again with his partner Ian Poulter.
Record holder Garcia paces the 25
At the Europeans, only the Spanish Duo Jon Rahm / Sergio Garcia could really convince the first two days, which could win their three common lots. With the victory on Saturday morning against Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger, Garcia had already written history: It was the 24th match win of the 41-year-old at his total tenth Ryder Cup participation. With the further success in the afternoon against Koepka and Jordan Spieth, Garcia expanded his record to 25 victories. No other player gained more victories in the history of the competition. In addition, the Spaniard improved its own points record to 28.5.
