Europeans can only hope for a 'Wisconsin miracle'

Europeans can only hope for a ‘Wisconsin miracle’

WIf the “Wisconsin miracle” doesn’t happen on Sunday, the Ryder Cup decides: After the first two days with a total of 16 four-games, as doubles are called in golf, the “USA” team leads the European team with a score of 11:5. Never in golf fencing history This prestige would make up for such a shortfall. The biggest gains so far came from the Americans in 1999 and the ‘Euro’ in 2012, which trailed by 6:10. In Sunday’s twelve singles (starting at 6:00pm CEST), the hosts only need three wins and one draw to reach the 14 points required to reclaim the Ryder Cup.

And one more thing speaks in favor of the home win: So far, every team has managed to win at least three and a half points per capita on Sunday. On the other hand, Europe would have to win nine out of 12 matches to score 14 points for a draw which would be enough for the defending champions to bring the trophy back to the old continent.

The 34-year-old Irishman, one of the three newcomers to the squad, narrowly won on Saturday afternoon in a four-ball game with his England partner Terrell Hatton against Tony Finau and Harris English with “1auf” (another hole won). “If you have a one percent chance, you have to believe it one hundred percent,” he added. The 34-year-old British Open champion from 2019 ensured a sunken three-meter shot on the 18th hole ensured that the guests shared their last four-ball ‘session’ 2:2 after losing the first three 1:3.

“not finished yet”

“It’s not over yet. We’ll give it everything,” said Sergio Garcia. The 41-year-old Spaniard won his two matches on Saturday with fellow countryman John Ram, who is 15 years his junior. The two won first in the classic quartet against Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger (3 and 1). In the afternoon, the new “Golf Armada” also won the match against Koepka, who this time played with Jordan Spieth (2 & 1). Garcia praised his partner for “playing John like number one”. The 26-year-old Basque demonstrated in The two days caused him to confidently lead the world rankings.With three and a half points (three wins and one draw), he is the most successful European player.
