Adjust Comment Print

The hosts held a four-point lead over U.S. going into the Sunday singles, but three United States wins from the first five matches gave the Europeans a sweat.

However, Thorbjorn Olesen, who was left out of Saturday's action by fellow Dane and Europe captain Thomas Bjorn, then thrashed three-time major victor Jordan Spieth 5&4 and Rahm picked a flawless time to win his first match and leave Woods without a single point.

World number one Johnson and Fowler notched the first point of the first Ryder Cup to be held in France, 4 and 2 against McIlroy and Thorbjorn Olesen. "They did that a lot to us".

"We need a big couple of points early on, and then the pressure moves exclusively on to them", said Spieth, who has three points from four matches here with Thomas.

Europe has now won nine of the last 12 Ryder Cups, including six straight on European soil.

Quotes, reaction to Cosby's sentence of 3-10 years in prison
Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby was sentenced to time behind bars on September 25, 2018, and his reaction to the news was shocking. The state prison system has geriatric inmates, and most of their prisons are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

"Ian, being a Ryder Cup guru, to have him twice today and win, and he pounded his chest twice on us earlier today".

The Ryder Cup is heading back to Europe.

It was Molinari who withstood Woods' charge at the British Open in July, staying calm amid frenzied scenes playing with the American, who electrified Carnoustie as he stormed into the lead halfway through the final round. "It was great for Rory to make that par putt (on 17) because it gave me the freedom to go for it". You can see how much it means to us by Sergio's reaction; he comes into his own in this tournament.

Patrick Reed went from "Captain America" to looking more like "Private Patrick", taking himself out of holes in the four-balls session with too many shots into the gnarly rough, in the water and one out-of-bounds.

Sent out again by Bjorn, they combined to inflict two crushing defeats on 14-times major champion Tiger Woods on Saturday as the American's miserable weekend continued. Jim Furyk's captain's picks finished 2-10-0 with both wins coming from Tony Finau (pending DeChambeau finish).

Panthers Legend Credits New Owner for Signing Eric Reid
The Carolina Panthers (2-1) signed Reid on Thursday, posting videos and images touting the new addition to their defense. Kaepernick congratulated his Reid on Twitter, saying Reid "should have been signed the 1st day of free agency".

Rahm, who led after all but one hole, pumped his fists and screamed with joy after his winning four-foot birdie putt left Europe two wins from victory. The match was all square going to the final hole.

"I feel like, you know, everyone on Tuesday felt exhausted, and then Wednesday, things started coming around", US captain Jim Furyk said, assessing a team that played at East Lake on Sunday, took a chartered red-eye and hunkered down at the Waldorf Astoria in Versailles and tried to regroup. When it got tough, they turned it around. I can't tell you how good I feel.

At 42, and seemingly a changed man after defying the odds and recovering from a potentially career-ending back injury, Woods now embraces his teammates, and the younger generation feel comfortable around a man they revere as a father figure.

"If we can get two or three points early, it gets to be quiet and uneasy around here".

UK's opposition will back 'sensible' Brexit deal
However, many commentators believe one could come earlier due to the political turmoil sparked by the Brexit process. Starmer has said a referendum to reverse Brexit must be an "option", but Corbyn's position is less clear.
