It’s a tight contest between the Americans and Europeans at the Ryder Cup. On Saturday, the Americans found a spark with Brooks Koepka and Brandt Snedeker, who teamed up for a 3 & 2 victory over Henrik Stenson and Matthew Fitzpatrick. For the Europeans, Rory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters contributed a 4 & 2 beatdown of Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.
European captain Darren Clarke faced some tough decisions for his afternoon matchups. Should he keep Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose seperated? The duo was lights out during Friday fourballs, but went 1-1 when split up for foursomes. Who among his six rookies can he trust in the heat of an afternoon match with the pressure on?
U.S. captain Love faced some similarly pressing concerns. Does he dare bench Spieth or Reed to rest them for Sunday? Will he shake up any pairings that struggled on Friday afternoon? Check out the captain’s decisions with the Saturday afternoon pairings and tee times below.
