A dramatic Day 1 of rapidly changing fortunes. Off the course we were probably a jammy railway sleeper bounce for Tony Finau away from landing our fourballs double, but never in doubt with our Euro-centric afternoon foursomes double.
The Day 2 Fourballs sees a rigid Jim Furyk sending out the same pairs that won yesterday’s equivalent session. Thomas Bjorn has again taken a measured approach with the long term in mind, including resting top man Justin Rose.
It looks a tricky session to call with home team momentum matched with US damaged pride.
That said, the unbeaten made-in-Heaven matching of Tommy Fleetwood and Francisco Molinari have found themselves rematched with yesteday’s victims, an out-of-sorts Patrick Reed and an exhausted looking Tiger Woods.
We expect a repeat dose, and on a morning of uncertainty elsewhere we’ll take a comfortable home win in this tie, with the par 3 16th an ideal spot to close out the match.
