Today’s Ryder Cup was very exciting. The European team came into today with leads in all the matches. Then the USA came back, but didn’t get over the hump. All the USA team was able to win today was 1/2 point in the last match, only after they lost the 18th hole to halve the match.
In short, the European team kicked the USA Team’s ass today. They scored 5.5 points to the USA team’s .5 points.
So the USA team goes into tomorrow with a large deficit on European soil, where they don’t fare well. It is looking good for Europe. The good news for the USA, is that their strength is singles matches.

Watched a little Ryder Cup this morning, before I’m off to play in a 27 hole tournament with my dad (wish me luck).
Play has been suspended due to heavy rain after two hours of play. It is ugly out there. I would have bailed long before they did.
Currently the European team is up in three of the four matches.
The weather is supposed to be good the rest of the weekend.
Below is a shot of some of the Ryder Cup competitors playing video games inside while waiting for the weather to clear. This was a Twitter pic from Ian Poulter. I thought that Tweeing was banned during the Ryder Cup, but apparently that doesn’t count for rain delays?
