Honestly just been entertaining. A lot of pretty great shots and the course is playing like it should in my eyes.

Absolutely entertaining. I will be watching the rest of the way and still cheering for the USA.

Would love to see a turn around tomorrow. Hoping the boys got a good lesson today and come back with a vengeance tomorrow.

I'm definitely team Europe, but still want it to be close and would love to see a final match matter for the win.

Did anybody catch that Justin Thomas lengthened his driver. I’m an advocate of playing the driver that’s the right length not auto shortening it because some touring pro did or conversely lengthening it for the same reason. 
 

These playing throughs are unfathomable. How about a graphic that tells us what the putt is for ?

Evon roll ER 5 32 inches

It's our offseason so auditioning candidates - looking for that right mix of low spin long, more spin around the greens - TBD

And hope springs eternal LOL. Imagine if it's 5-3 at the end of the day. That would work fine. None of this is that surprising at all to me. The Euros are going to be more in form, especially initially. They have played competitively more recently, played the course more, and have the home advantage, something not insignificant. then you have people saying stuff to motivate them more, that was REALLY dumb. This was already a tough go, but if they can get it to 5-3 or even 5.5 to 2.5, they might have a chance. Going to stay hopeful but realistic.

Just your "normal" obsessed golfer in search of more shots with names of flying critters...

And let's not forget Whistling Straits and Team Euros motivation for payback.  I'm guessing Luke mentioned that at least once during team discussions.

Keegan, Bryson & a few others can kick their feet up knowing the USA got exactly what they wanted.  BTW, why in the world did BK sit the opening match...makes no sense to me.

Collin was a terrible captains pick...amazing how he glided under the radar while everyone blasted JT...including me...

I'm sure he's a good guy in the locker room though.

When Spieth is good he's very good but when he's bad he's awful. One man show for Thomas.

I'm guessing Freddy Boom-Boom lobbied hard not to play him at all. He's been the most outspoken about LIV players and I'm sure he didn't want BK on the team.  I  did notice him high fiving with Brooks at the opening ceremony; two faced 🙄

Ultimately, I don't think it would matter who made the team or who plays with who against who - team Euro is everybit equal in talent (arguably more at present), they have also been better in team structured events, and they are drawing off the thrashing at Whistling Straits.  But, hey, not done yet 🤣.

welp, at least I won't have to pull an all nighter or worry about staying away from any news.

hard to believe it's over after the first day. might be the worst US "team" I've seen in a long long time.

US didn't lose EUR beat them and beat them badly. ZJ over his head as a capt.

Kinda how I expected it to play out.  For some reason the US loses any and all emotion in europe. Thank god JT was selected. Homa carried some weight but missed at the end there. Hopefully some killer instinct starts to hit Brooks, and others we know to really get amped!

I played my heart in the contest - guess any winning is long gone haha!

For anyone defending USA's captain's picks.... 

"In fact , we both tend to hold the Midwestern stoic view that genuine problems are solved with action, not pissing and moaning. If you run around sharing your feelings too much, you'll eventually arrive at a place where you're not only still screwed up, but now everyone knows about it, too." - John Gierach - Sex, Death and Fly Fishing

tbh, what screwed the US, most of their guys haven't played in about a month. The European players have all still been playing. They just look sharper, more poised. US lost their edge by not having guys playing more prior.

An all LIV line-up wouldn't (couldn't) do any worse.  Plus, it would have given ZJ coverage.

Has anyone run the math... how soon can this be over?

I get all the smoke that is being blown about JT being selected to the Ryder Cup team. The issue is every single time there are going to be guys like Keegan who absolutely played well enough for a spot. There just are only so many spots to fill. Historically, JT is deadly in Ryder cup formats. He brings a tenacity and intensity to the team, and paired with Jordan for match play (assumption but gotta almost be a guarantee) I do believe he will play well and they will feed off each other. 

I am excited about how ZJ put the team together and think they will perform very well. He's also in a tough spot because had the chosen to leave JT off and lose, and everyone wonders why the heck he left a guy home who has a 15-6-1 record in previous cups. 

My prediction is JT plays well and USA pulls out a very close victory against Europe. I do not think it will be a repeat of what we saw at Whistling Straights. 

6.5-1.5

When you pick the team based on your buddy group rather than merit, this is the garbage result you get.
