What is four ball in Ryder Cup?

Fourball is a type of competition in which two teams of two golfers each — Team USA and Team Europe, for the purposes of the Ryder Cup — play through 18 holes. Each individual golfer plays their own ball for a given hole, so four balls will always be in play (hence the name). Sporting News AUHow does the Ryder Cup work?

Tyler Posey, who starred in the show as the lead Scott McCall, confirmed the news on Instagram on Friday, the exact date the last episode of the series aired on MTV.

"Sup," Posey, 29, wrote in the caption of a video showcasing online messages from fans asking for the return of the show.

The video then cut to text that read, "A wolf howls to signal its location to the rest of the pack. We've heard your howls and we're howling back…" The tease then showed a blue jeep—which was owned by Dylan O'Brian's Stiles Stilinski on the show— and a wolf with red eyes howling.

Teen Wolf, loosely based on the 1985 movie of the same name, ran for six seasons from 2011 to 2017. The series follows Scott (Posey), a high school student who is bitten by a werewolf and must cope with its effects on him, his friends and his family.

Posey shared throwback photos of Teen Wolf all week in the lead-up to Friday's announcement. 

On Monday, he shared a behind-the-scenes photo of himself and O'Brien from season 1, as well as images from the other seasons, including season 4, which he said "brought @dylansprayberry and we love him."

Dylan Spraberry played a young high schooler who became a werewolf and part of Scott's pack. The actor, as well as actress Holland Rodden, who played Lydia in the series, also shared the movie announcement video on their respective Instagram accounts.

In June 2020, Posey, O'Brien, Sprayberry, Rodden and other members of the cast including Melissa Ponzio (Melissa McCall), Khylin Rhambo (Mason Hewitt), Orny Adams (Coach Finstock), Linden Ashby (Noah Stilinski), Ian Bohen (Peter Hale), Charlie Carver (Ethan) Max Carver (Aiden), Arden Cho (Kira Yukimura), Cody Christian (Theo Raeken) and Shelley Hennig (Malia Tate) reunited for the ninth anniversary of the show. 

The special event benefitted the First Responders First charity, which aids frontline workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In 2018, Posey opened up about wanting to do a reboot, saying on an episode of PeopleTV's Chatter, "For Teen Wolf, that's what I've said since the beginning of the show. I've always wanted to do that."

Teen Wolf the Movie is expected for release in 2022 on Paramount+.

Ryder Cup 25 September, 2021 - 11:20am

The 43rd Ryder Cup is here, and this feels like perhaps the most-anticipated such event of all time given we all had to wait an extra year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then consider that Europe has won seven of the last nine Ryder Cups, all the angst on the United States' side and a changing of the guard with youth supplanting the likes of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson for the Americans while the Europeans side with their aging heroes.

Those ingredients have created one of the most interesting Ryder Cups ever. A hot start was important for the Americans, and that's what they got on Friday. Since the 2002 Ryder Cup, the team that has won the first day has gone on to win seven times in nine tries. That has held at each of the last three as well, most famously in 2018 in Paris when the U.S. won the first three matches on Friday morning and Europe won the next eight and went on to easily retain the Cup.

The United States leads 6-2, its largest advantage after the first day in this event since 1975. It's also the largest lead the Americans have ever had after one day since Europe joined Great Britain and Ireland in the opposing team in 1979. 

The next few days of golf will serve as a celebratory end to what has been a wild and difficult last 18 months should be wonderful no matter who wins the event. Here's a look at what to expect, how to watch and a refresher on just how unique this biennial team event is in the world of golf.

Plus, check out the complete Ryder Cup TV schedule through the weekend.

The first two days of Ryder Cup action (Friday, Saturday) will include split sessions with separate types of golf being played. Golfers from the United States and Europe will compete in both four-ball action early in the day and foursomes later in the day. On Sunday, the golfers will complete in one-on-one singles matches. Below we break down each type of match you will see this week.

Four-ball: Two-man teams representing each country square off against each other. Each of the four golfers plays their own ball, and the pairs choose their best score to count for the hole. The two scores not chosen get thrown out.

Foursomes: Two-man teams representing each country square off against each other. However, the golfers must switch off hitting the same ball until it rolls in the cup. The rotation can start fresh the next hole at the discretion of each pair. There is more strategy involved here, and the U.S. has struggled in this format over recent years.

Scoring (four-ball and foursomes): The winner of each hole receives a single point for their round; if the score is even (such as both teams make birdie), no point is awarded. Points are never lost. At the end of each match, the winning team gets one point for their country (or 0.5 if the result is even). A match can end early if the winning team is up more points than there are holes left to play.

Singles: Sunday consists of 12 one-on-one matches played over the course of the day. The winner of each match receives one point (or 0.5 if the result is even).

Teams: Check out the Ryder Cup teams representing the United States and Europe, along with how they stack up against one another.

Early TV coverage: 8-9 a.m. on Golf Channel

Singles: 12 p.m.

Trophy presentation / closing ceremony: Live on RyderCup.com

Ryder Cup match previews: Saturday morning Foursomes

It was a wild day in Wisconsin, one where the home team rode the momentum to a large lead. The United States leads the Ryder Cup, 6-2, after the opening day. According to Justin Ray of Twenty First Group, this is the United States' largest lead after the opening day since 1977, the last Ryder Cup before continental Europe was added to the mix. The Elias Sports Bureau said this is the seventh time that a team has earned six or more points on Day 1. The only time that a team failed to win the Ryder Cup after earning six or more points on Day 1 was in 1999 at The Country Club, where the U.S. mounted a historic comeback.

There are still 20 points remaining, however. Can the United States continue its momentum? Can Europe claw its way back? We’ll have to wait and see.

The U.S. stuck with the tried and true, rolling out the same four teams that went 3-1 in Friday's Foursomes sessions. "it went so well this morning that I figured why mess things up and change things up at all?" said U.S. Captain Steve Stricker. The biggest news from the European side is that Rory McIlroy is sitting out a session for the first time in his career. He went 0-2 on Friday, with both his matches ending after 15 holes.

Until then, let’s look at the pairings for Saturday morning’s Foursomes matches. The United States won Friday’s Foursomes session, 3-1. A repeat performance could put the Cup out of reach, but Europe typically excels in this format.

Here’s are Saturday’s four Foursomes matches, with previews below:

8:05 a.m. ET: Brooks Koepka/Daniel Berger vs. Jon Rahm/Sergio Garcia

8:21 a.m. ET: Dustin Johnson/Collin Morikawa vs. Paul Casey/Tyrrell Hatton

8:37 a.m. ET: Justin Thomas/Jordan Spieth vs. Viktor Hovland/Bernd Wiesberger

The victorious pair of Seminoles is back together but they’ll face Europe’s lone victorious team from Friday. Koepka and Berger beat a pair of Englishmen, Matt Fitzpatrick and Lee Westwood, in the first Foursomes session. Now they face the indomitable Spaniards, who won Friday’s opening match, beating Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, 3 and 1. The combination of Koepka’s driving (seventh in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee last season) and Berger’s iron play (fifth in Strokes Gained: Approach) could be potent. Garcia and Rahm both ranked in the top three of Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee last season and possess strong iron play.

Player records: Daniel Berger (1-0-0 overall; 1-0-0 Foursomes); Brooks Koepka (5-3-1 overall; 2-1-0 Foursomes); Sergio Garcia (23-12-7 overall; 11-4-3 Foursomes); Jon Rahm (2-2-1 overall; 1-0-0 Foursomes)

Ever wonder what Morikawa, one of the game’s top iron players, would be like with 30 extra yards? Pretty darn good. That’s why he’s back with Dustin Johnson in Foursomes after they teamed for a 3-and-2 victory on Friday. Morikawa is the shortest hitter on the U.S. Team but led the TOUR in Strokes Gained: Approach. Casey has already seen this show. DJ and Morikawa beat Casey and Hovland, 3 and 2, on Friday, but Casey’s partner will be riding a wave of momentum after holing a big birdie Friday evening to earn a halve against Bryson DeChambeau and Scottie Scheffler.

Player records: Dustin Johnson (9-9-0 overall; 2-3-0 Foursomes); Collin Morikawa (1-0-0 overall; 1-0-0 Foursomes); Paul Casey (4-5-5 overall; 1-2-0 Foursomes); Tyrrell Hatton (1-2-1 overall; 0-0-0 Foursomes)

Spieth and Thomas were the lone U.S. pair to lose a Foursomes match Friday, but they have a chance for redemption. Spieth sat in the afternoon but Thomas should have confidence after his strong finish to his Four-balls match with Patrick Cantlay. They fought back from a 3-down deficit after eight holes to earn an important tie. Thomas’ 17-foot eagle putt on 16 was key to the comeback against a team that included Hovland. Hovland and Wiesberger, who are both rookies, went winless in three matches Friday.
