I've fallen in love with these team events.  The most recent presidents cup in Australia was a gateway drug and now I'll watch this over the tour championship.  Can't wait to see if the US can bring this thing home.  I also love how Michelle Wie has taken on this role of ambassador to the Women's game.  I'm not sure her career has been all she had hoped (not that it is bad  by any definition) but she is staying close to the game and is a fabulous role model for ALL golfers, not just ladies.

Team USA has some work to do in today's foursomes and tomorrows singles.  Were it not for the very odd and controversial call on Nelly's eagle putt, they'd likely be down by 4-1/2 points.  I'm not sure what TGC will offer me today in coverage (the reality of remote living broadcasts) but I'll definitely watch this if available.

I look forward to the day where the ladies receive the recognition they deserve.  There is so much talent on both teams and so far, it's been pretty fantastic to watch.

 

Not only that...girls sports are just so fun to watch.  The sportsmanship and overall fun that they have while playing.  As a girl dad, this is something I really love and admire about women's team sports.

Regarding the ruling, I hope they had a better close up video replay to look at than I have been able to find to make that decision. 

It seems the rules official is the one that initiated looking at it further & the subsequent ruling on the putt being holed, not the American players.

I guess I’m in the minority ,but I don’t find these types of events all that exciting. As much as I enjoy women’s golf I just don’t care for this type of format. With that said, how is there not one of these type events with someone versus Korea?

I question the coaching decision to put Salas/Kupcho out ahead of Kang/Ernst. I get wanting to put the hot team of Salas/Kupcho up against the hot EU team of McGuire/Reid but it could also frustrate Kang/Ernst having to play behind Salas all afternoon.

... 👍  I could make the argument there is even more talent on the LPGA/European tour simply because they cannot muscle balls out of bad lies or thick rough and rely on skill not strength. Other than the Majors, I always prefer watching the women than the men.

This right here. The fun they all have out there, the interaction with each other and the fans, the music and cheering are all so appealing. Men’s golf could learn a thing or three.

I've seen a few analysis comparisons that show, by the numbers, women tour players are every bit as good as men... arguably marginally better.   I watch quite a bit of LPGA golf events and enjoy them every bit as as much as PGA tour events.

Women’s golf is wildly entertaining. If it were covered with half as much fervor as the PGA Tour, more people would be able to see that. Equal talent, better personalities, better human beings, who are far more approachable and relatable than anyone on the PGA Tour.

I'm in the same boat as a few in here, outside the majors I watch the LPGA on weekends. They have better personality, less goofy drama and play a version of golf I can relate to. Last I checked my playing yardages were basically LPGA tour average. 216, yep that's a hybrid on the LPGA. 

As for the matches today, Kupcho was killing it. 🔥🔥

It kills me watching some of their drives roll out to the 300 yard mark. TGC stated that Kupcho is the best pure ball striker on the tour.  That is really saying something considering just how "pure and robotic", seemingly, the entire tour roster performs.

Team USA has a pretty big hill to climb in today's singles.  This may very well be decided on captain's choices.

I agree to a small extent. The female sports I enjoy watching are lpga, volleyball (indoor and beach), gymnastics and college softball.

Let's hope the rather ominous start turns into a mid round rally for Team USA. Is it just me or does Leona McGuire look like she'd be just as happy having this contest in an octagon? Pretty intense.

Yeah, I was hoping with it stacked with Lexi, Kupcho and Nelly stacked at the beginning it would lead to some early points, hopefully they turn it aorund, or it won't matter by the time it gets to Danielle Kang.

Just noted that 8 of Team Europe's players attended US colleges... seems like we should get 1/4 point for each of those spots 👍.
