For the first time in history, Team USA heads into Day 2 of the Ryder Cup with a 6-2 lead over Europe. Saturday’s play will begin around 8 a.m. ET with four foursome matches, followed by four fourball matches in the afternoon.
Day 1 produced a dominant performance by Team USA, which lost just one match and tied two other. The six rookies on the team are undefeated (Scottie Scheffler and Patrick Cantlay had ties in their fourball matches). Bryson DeChambeau ended his fourball match in a tie, but that was the first time in his Ryder Cup career he didn’t lose.
Jon Rahm appears to be the European player to beat. He won his morning match with Sergio Garcia, the player with the most Ryder Cup wins in history, and tied his afternoon match with Tyrrell Hatton. Rory McIlroy lost both his matches by wide margins (5 and 3, 4 and 3). It was the first time he lost both his matches in one day.
