Tiger frustrated by 0-3 start to Ryder Cup

Tiger frustrated by 0-3 start to Ryder Cup

For this year's edition, Bjorn and Co. exploited a considerable home-course advantage.

Europe's captain Thomas Bjorn shrugged off an incident involving Rory McIlroy as tempers threatened to boil over on a raucous second day at the Ryder Cup.

But the recriminations had already started.

Unlike four years ago, when they were trounced at Gleneagles, the Americans were disappointed Sunday but not on the verge of a hostile takeover. "I was fortunate enough to have won one, and we were all coming here on a high and feeling great about our games, about what we were doing, and excited about playing this week".

"The issue's obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me", Reed told the Times. It didn't help that his partners, Reed and DeChambeau, contributed little.

Three of captain Thomas Bjorn's predecessors in the role, Brian Huggett, Sam Torrance and Jose Maria Olazabal, delivered a series of messages created to fire up the Europeans - and it seemed to do the job as they beat the United States comprehensively in Paris.

Somehow, though, Finau (2-1-0) was the only one to earn any points for the U.S. Mickelson looked lost, Woods exhausted and confused by the greens, and DeChambeau like the victim of circumstances and hot players for Europe.

This appears to be what has infuriated him most.

Team USA's Ryder Cup implosion since lunch-time on Friday seems to be ever gathering momentum.

For Reed, Spieth got preferential treatment from Furyk in what the Masters champion regards as the "buddy system".

"I feel so bad for Jim, because he was an unreal captain".

"It was fantastic", Molinari said. You live it, you breathe it and you've worked hard to be here. You could argue that both Spieth (privately) and Reed (publicly) are making personal demands instead of working for the team ethic. As one of Thomas Bjorn's lieutenants in Paris, the Irishman is in prime position to assume the mantle in two years' time, with Lee Westwood an equally strong front-runner for 2022, when the competition makes its first appearance in Italy.

He went 0-4 at Le Golf National after what was an inspired effort to even be part of the US team.

Urging the European Tour to make a swift decision on the captaincy for Wisconsin in 2020, McIlroy argued that only Harrington had the type of major championship pedigree on American soil needed to orchestrate an away victory. - European captain Thomas Bjorn, who promised to get a tattoo if his team won.

Francesco Molinari's victory over Phil Mickelson clinched Team Europe's Ryder Cup reclamation project, with the Italian golfer becoming the first European player to go 5-0 in a Ryder Cup. "I'm just so proud of everyone on the team".

But Woods wore his waterproof pants over his team uniform on both Saturday and Sunday when the temperature was edging towards 20 degrees.

But if one living man personifies European golf, it's Olazabal.

Even if the ending lacked any drama, the wild scene afterward was indicative of just how massive this continental clash has become. One chronic attention-seeker even tweeted "the wrong team won" for a mea culpa on an article predicting a Paris rout for the United States of America and years of more to follow rendering the Ryder Cup a no-contest. "They played well. When we put some heat on them early this afternoon, they responded".

At various points, thousands of fans massed on ridges where they were able to watch multiple tees and greens without moving, while 18 huge video screens meant spectators could watch every ball. Reports from earlier this week suggest Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka were involved in a confrontation just hours after the two played together. In July, he won the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour and then lifted the claret jug at Carnoustie following a nerveless final round of 69 playing in the last group with Woods.
