Although Europe took two of the four matches on Saturday afternoon, the United States is still in pole position to take the Ryder Cup on Sunday at Whistling Straits.
The U.S. went 3-1 for the third straight session on Saturday morning in foursomes, with (you guessed it) Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia earning the only points. The Spaniards earned another point in the afternoon, as did Tyrrell Hatton and Shane Lowry.
The biggest turnaround was from Bryson DeChambeau and Scottie Scheffler, who won three straight holes late in the round to take a two-hole lead over Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland. That victory moved the Americans’ lead to a commanding 11-5 entering Sunday’s decisive 12 singles matches.
It would take an unprecedented comeback for Europe to retain the Ryder Cup on Sunday, with them listed at +3000 to win on DraftKings.
You can read more about the Ryder Cup format here. The first two days are pairings in foursomes (also known as alternate shot) and four-ball. Foursomes is where each team alternates shots between the two players in each pair, while four-ball involves both players in each pairing playing the hole, and the team taking the lowest score.
There are 28 points up for grabs between the eight four-ball and alternate-shot matches on Friday and Saturday, then the 12 singles match-play fixtures on Sunday. Europe needs 14 points to retain the cup, and the U.S. needs 14 1/2 to take it back. A tie will give the cup back to Europe, too.
