Reed's wife: 'ask Jordan' why no Reed pairing

Updated: 9:20 a.m. ET The United States’ 10-6 deficit through two days of the Ryder Cup prompted some second-guessing of captain Jim Furyk’s decision-making late Saturday and early Sunday. One of the biggest question marks entering the week was Furyk’s choice to split up the productive pairing of Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, who had […]

Europe extend lead to leave USA requiring its own miracle

Europe tightened its grip on the 2018 Ryder Cup after another dominant display at Le Golf National in Paris, winning five of the eight points on offer to extend the home side’s lead to four points going into the Sunday singles. Thomas Bjorn’s side won the fourballs 3-1, to extend Europe’s run of unanswered points […]

Furyk doubles down: Tiger's health not an issue

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France – Tiger Woods played both team sessions on Saturday at the Ryder Cup, at least temporarily shelving concerns that he’s been slowed by an injury this week. Despite losing both matches on Day 2, Woods didn’t appear hampered in any way and on a few occasions took vicious swings from the rough to […]

Woods 'pissed off' after going 0-3

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France – Tiger Woods was on the wrong side of history this week at the Ryder Cup, and he’ll be happy he avoided Francesco Molinari in Sunday singles. Woods hasn’t been able to escape the Italian all year, first when Molinari won the Quicken Loans National and again at The Open at Carnoustie. Now Molinari […]

Benched and beaten, Phil's Ryder Cup takes a 180

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France – No American has spanned the Ryder Cup spectrum quite as extensively as Phil Mickelson. He’s savored wins and endured losses, and four years ago it was Mickelson who lit the flame that overhauled the entire thought process for the U.S. side. And so it was that with the tide rising against them […]

Furyk knows almost too much about 10-6 comebacks

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France – Jim Furyk, perhaps as much as anyone here at Le Golf National, understands the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat as it pertains to the Ryder Cup. The U.S. captain played crucial roles in the American comeback from 10-6 down at the 1999 Ryder Cup at Brookline, and he dropped […]

Both teams know 10-6 is most unsettling lead

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France – The present was pure pandemonium, but Henrik Stenson’s mind still flashed to the past. He’d just been swallowed in a bear hug by Justin Rose after he holed back-to-back pressure putts to win their foursomes match. He’d heard the giddy fans in the grandstand stomping their feet and singing, “Gooooooneeeee be the […]

This new Tiger is having the same old Ryder Cup problems

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France – The new-and-improved Tiger Woods is approachable, healthy, competitive and above all appreciative. But if the last 48 hours in France have proven anything, it’s that he still doesn’t play well with others. The best player of his generation, perhaps of all time, added to the most confounding record in golf,  losing all […]
