    American victory looking the most likely now. Big 20 minutes or so for them.

    The Reed/ McIlroy and Lefty/ Garcia matches are two if the best I've ever seen in Ryder cup.

    Golf from the Gods. Amazing stuff and all played under extreme pressure.

    Some outstanding golf from both sides.

    cabrera-bello and pieters both played extremely well over the weekend, and out played some of their more experienced team mates. Mcilroy anchored well, even though he lost narrowly today, he's grown into the leadership role that Monty and others have filled in the past.

    Both matches were exceptional - some of the shots played were awesome - can't stand Reed but he is the USA's Ian Poulter.

    I don't mind Reed at all. Sure he's passionate sure he's at the wind up inthe Ryder Cup.
    The guy is a world class golfer and he believes in himself. He's not like your typical American touring pro either who is just happy to plod along making a mountain of cash on the PGA Tour over there. He regularly plays all over world on various tours. He embraces other cultures and lives life to the full. Contrast that with Buba Watson who cried because he was playing **** and homesick in France a couple of years ago and rarely if ever seen again. Jordan Spieth is another who can't be ersed being a global player.

    I thought Tee to Green the Europeans were the better team. However, very few of our guys could hole a putt whereas the Americans were holing everything, they whooped our asses on the greens and deservedly won the cup because of it.
    That first 9 holes of Reed v McIlroy was tremendous, Reed was holing out from all over the place just for a half, Rory could easily have been 4 up after 4 and probably would have been against ANYBODY else.

    Patrick Reed is a strange one. Has zero contact with his parents, his wife claims they beat him and used him as a cash cow. They walked the rope at The USGA one year and he saw them, had them escorted out by the PoPo. His sister strongly denies any of this and repeatedly castigates him for it.His wife used to caddy for him and is still on the range for his practice sessions,her sister is their nanny and her mum is their 'advisor'.

    He used to introduce himself at parties by saying ' Hi I'm Patrick Reed and I'll kick your ass at golf'. Undeniably true of most of the world, but strange and not cool.

    I personally think he's an idiot of epic proportions, a total eedjit, and I'm fairly sure alot of the US team think the same. Maybe not in ryder Cup week, for the obvious reasons.

    Guys like Zac Johnstone, Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler seem to me to be really nice guys, I cannae see them having much in common with Reed.
