Europe swept the first day of the Ryder Cup between Europe and the United States. The Europeans won five and drew three of their eight matches to earn 6.5 points on the first day of competition at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club (par-72) in Rome, Italy, on Tuesday (Sept. 30).The Europeans, who are well ahead of the United States, which has just 1.5 points, will be looking to avoid a 10-point deficit at the 2021 event. This is only the third time in the history of the Ryder Cup that a five-point lead has been created on the first day. The United States took a five-point lead on day one in 1975 and Europe took a five-point lead in 2004.This is the second time since the final day of the 2010 Ryder Cup that the United States has failed to win a single match on day one. You have to go all the way back to 1947 for a team to not win a single match on day one .Back then, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland lost all four matches to the United States. The Europeans set the tone for the day by winning all four foursomes, especially the first one .It was the first time in the 44th edition of the Ryder Cup that all four foursomes matches were won on the first day .In foursomes, where two players take turns hitting the ball, the more team-oriented Europeans usually have a significant head-to-head advantage over the United States. Yon Rahm (Spain) and Tyrrell Hatton (England) defeated Scotty Shaffler and Sam Burns in four holes, while Viktor Hovlan (Norway) teamed up with Ludvig Aberg (Sweden) to defeat Max Horma and Brian Harman in four holes. Shane Lowry (IRL) teamed up with Jeff Straka (AUS) to defeat Rickie Fowler and Colin Morikawa by two holes .Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Tommy Fleetwood (England) also defeated Xander Schauffley and Patrick Cantlay by two holes. The next event, four-ball, is where the Americans are stronger than the Europeans. In the four-ball match, in which two players each hit a ball and the better score counts as a team score, the United States, with its evenly matched players, was always ahead. However, Europe sank a dramatic putt at the last to deny the Americans a victory. Hovlan holed an 8-meter birdie on the 18th (par-5) to draw level, while Rahm eagled the 16th (par-4) and 18th (par-5) to come from behind. Rose also trailed by a stroke through 17 holes, but a 4-meter birdie on the 18th secured a half-point .McIlroy, along with Matt Fitzpatrick (England), defeated 카지노사이트 Schauffele and Morikawa by five holes.
