It may be over five hours since the first ball was hit at the Ryder Cup this morning but all four matches are still in progress. The top match is on the 18th with Tiger & Furyk 1-up. Matches 2 & 4 are all square, with everything to play for but it looks like a certain point for the Europeans with the Spanish pair 3-up with just three holes to play.
The pairings for this afternoon’s foursomes have been announced. Ian Woosnam has elected play all twelve of his team on the opening day and the Europeans will lead off with an Irish pairing of McGinley & Harrington. Henrik Stenson and David Howell should both be rearing to go and will be expected to win. Tom Lehman has put his two heavyweight combinations out on the last two matches and it promises to be an exciting afternoon (and evening, at the current rate of progress!).
