A close contest

Ryder Cup Diary Live
Remarkably, after two hours of golf, none of the four matches has yet gone more than 1-up in any direction. This keeps the possibility of a sweep for either team still alive although the early evidence suggests the Europeans are the likely winners of this day and the tournament.

Tiger Woods has had something of a nightmare so far but has just hit a sweet approach to the 8th and can get his match back to all square. The US team cannot afford to have both their heavyweight teams fail to win.

The golf has been nothing short of spectacular so far and not always for the right reasons! We’ve seen many balls go in the water and there’s been quite a lot of hacking out from behind trees. All of this is wonderfully entertaining for the spectators.

The pace of the golf has been quite slow. The top game is on the 8th green, two hours and fifteen minutes after the first shot. Apparently, they have been warned but it’s not clear how they can be sanctioned. Not that the fans are complaining, this is golf heaven.

As things stand at 10.15am: top and bottom games are tied, Europe are 1-up in each of the middle games.
