It was a nervy start for both sides as Garcia found a fairway bunker off the tee and Thomas failed to convert a makeable birdie opportunity on the opening hole. Nevertheless, the two teams quickly got their feet underneath themselves. It was a back-and-forth battle early, as birdies were traded until the putters ran cold for the U.S. Team.
Heading to the back nine 2 down, the childhood friends from the United States were unable to make up any ground on the Spanish duo. Between Garcia’s pinpoint accuracy with his irons and Rahm’s red-hot putter, the Europeans were able to turn a tight match into a full point.
A pair of rookie-veteran pairings faced off in a highly anticipated second match. An opening birdie courtesy of Morikawa’s putter put the first American flag on the leaderboard. But that lead was short-lived as the Europeans tied the match on the par-3 third hole, a common theme throughout the front nine.
A short miss from Westwood on the opening hole told the tale of this match, as all four players struggled at times on the greens. Both sides gave themselves plenty of birdie looks to begin the day, with the American side making the most of their opportunities early.
Early and often, the experienced rookies poured it on the European Team. Already 4 up through the first four holes, the situation went from bad to worse for McIlroy and Poulter when Schauffele converted an unlikely birdie from outside 35 feet on the par-5 fifth.
Cantlay followed suit on the next hole, pushing the lead back up to four with four holes remaining. With the Americans in closer, Poulter failed to convert the European’s birdie opportunity on No. 15, ensuring a 5-and-3 victory for the U.S. Team and their second point of the morning session.
