USA tease Woods-Mickelson Ryder Cup pairing

Golf rules and jargon

He was screaming and shouting like never before and, pushed too far by some of the stuff being aimed at him from outside the ropes, he angrily confronted one fan on the Saturday for overstepping the mark with a comment. He and Henrik Stenson are the only players to have beaten the pair of Spieth and Patrick Reed at the Ryder Cup. Trailing by three points, Europe needed McIlroy to try to set the tone and, at the same time, silence a boisterous home
support. I also know how important this event is to all 12 guys and to Tiger, as well. The combinations you can come up with for pairings are borderline innumerable to the point that you could draw two names randomly out of a hat and come up with a twosome that makes a lot of sense.

But the performance of past European rookies bodes well for the home team. "It sort of reached its crescendo on the eighth green, and the last 10 holes weren't quite as good". It all went downhill from there for the Brits, who lost 16 of the next 18 contests after 1933 despite Northern Ireland coming on board in 1947 and players from the Republic joining the fray in 1953.

Thomas epitomizes the current bomb-and-gauge style of play on Tour but will have to adjust due to some seriously thick rough and tight fairways at Le Golf National.

"I don't really want to speculate how he's going to play or what he's going to do. When it comes to the Ryder Cup Europe stands as one", Bjorn said.

They must be favourites then?


Liverpool take flawless record to Chelsea for biggest test
Signed in the summer from Stoke City for a paltry £13m, the Swiss midfielder has made a bright start to life on Merseyside. And even then still not possible to score a goal, but he did because of a ideal finish.

Furyk chose to send off Ryder Cup rookie Tony Finau and three-time major champion Brooks Koepka in the opening fourballs match Friday against Justin Rose and rookie Jon Rahm.

United States captain Jim Furyk pulled something of a surprise in breaking up the Reed/Spieth partnership that had worked so well in the last two Ryder Cups, but said he liked the chemistry between Reed and Woods. "It was sort of a bit of a "throw us together at the last moment and see how it goes".

Both captains delivered the same message: Their teams are so strong that they had loads of options and tough choices on whom to sit.

Rahm warns that all the players will be the butt of a joke at some point during the week, saying he hoped his "sarcastic humour" hadn't "hurt anybody" in the team. I'd love to find another partner that I could go so well with again this week.

USA captain Jim Furyk has tried to tone down the hype, though it was hard to ignore that it was a "boost for everyone, and I think for Tiger in general, it's cool". Taking all of that into account, we're likely to see upwards of 15,000 screaming fans around the tee when the first group takes the first tee. He's got that passion that the Spanish are known for.

Salisbury suspect a Russian colonel who was likely personally honoured by Putin
Unusually, there are virtually no details or photographs relating to Chepiga's Hero of the Russian Federation decoration. The pair survived the attack but two more people were poisoned and one of the victims, Dawn Sturgess, died in July.

How is Tiger's Ryder Cup record that bad?!

They might be 24 of the best players in the world but, if much of the Ryder Cup build up is to be believed, this year's battle will be decided less by golfing prowess than on who is having the most fun in the team room. I don't really need any motivation.

"I've seen it from the other side of the ropes and I'm very, very happy and excited to be on this side of the ropes", Thomas said Wednesday. He knows that himself and, therefore, expects to have someone nearly as a chaperone when the gun goes off.

"I look at the USA and guys probably have a habit of putting too much pressure on ourselves here because it's been 25 years", Furyk said. We really complement each other very well.

It was a win which reverberated around the sporting world given that Woods himself had reportedly told Jack Nicklaus "I'm done" in April 2017, before undergoing spinal fusion surgery in a last-ditch bid to save his career. They are not going to put two rookies up on Friday morning.

Ronaldo likely to play against United, might get one-match suspension
Douglas Costa was dismissed for elbowing, heabutting and spitting at an opponent, and has received a four-game ban. Ronaldo saw red for Juve's Champions League win at Valencia after an apparent clash with Jeison Murillo .
