Strange pairings, not looking very good this.

 

Fleetwood should be in ann Casey have had two poor matches.

Average world ranking of US team: 8.9. Average of European team: 30.8.

 

Average age of US team: 29.1. Average of European team: 34.6.

 

It's a total mismatch. And playing out that way in front of a partisan crowd.

But you promised us a win you charlatan 

And I still am. In fact, I’m guaranteeing it. You’re effectively judging a game about half way through the first half. We’ll win because of all that stuff I said earlier that I still absolutely believe. Yep. I still believe. I really do.

 

You buying any of this?

What’s the record winning margin in a Ryder Cup? I think that’s the kind of thing we should be looking at right now.

 

2012 was a long time ago.

Those parings are odd. Especially keeping Matt Fitz with Westwood? Get him with Hovland or something where they can talk about fidget spinners or what ever the young uns are talking about. 
 

The Americans were sensational yesterday. It was a spectacle of putting I don't think I’ve ever seen before. Even our best Ryder Cup team would have struggled to stick with them. But this mornings choices could go badly wrong, and if they do, that’ll be on the skipper.

 

I think Harrington is hoping to get a 2-2 this morning and then send out fresh McIlroy, etc in the afternoon  and claw it back then. It’s very risky, and he’ll be a legend if it works, but if they play badly…..

 

Now, if the Yanks perform today like they did yesterday, then it doesn’t matter how well Europe play, they’ll be annihilated again.
 

But surely America can’t play that well again? Surely not?

I dont think rankings matter much in this format. The skill is in the pairings and making sure they compliment each other. I'm not sure Europe have got close to getting it right, yet.

Yes and no.  When the Americans are playing this well, they could have been paired with anyone and it wouldn’t have mattered. Yesterday’s European pairings all made sense (tin my head anyway). It was just that some of the played awful, and I’d that happens, there is nothing you can do. Hatton, who was everyone’s worry, probably the best after the Spanish pair.  
 

But I’m surprised with this mornings pairings. This could go badly wrong.

Too many Europeans not playing well. Yanks only need to play percentages and the odd decent shot to win. Needs a huge swing from here. 10.6 is the minimum Europe can hope for.

Enjoying the fact that the living dead only seem to appear for the afternoon sessions.

Hovland and Weisberger go 3 up ..... 

 

If Fitzpatrick and Westwood can at least draw with Schaufelle and Cantlay I'll eat my foot
