Ryder Cup Day 1 Re-Cap

Team USA bosses Kooch, DJ, And Woods

The Americans lead 5-3

The duo of Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker went 0-2 

Phil Mikelson and Keegan Bradley went 2-0 and looked great, beating McIlroy and McDowell in the afternoon. 

Nick Colsaerts played incredible golf this afternoon for the Euros. It was his Ryder Cup debut and he beat Tiger.

Its worth noting American Bubba Watson pulled a Happy Gilmore and got the crowd to cheer loudly DURING his opening tee shot. So sweet, something you never see in Golf. Once there's an acceptable video on-line somewhere I'll post it. 

I don't know the exact stats but the team leading after Day 1 almost always wins. I think the last time that wasn't the case was the historic 1999 Ryder Cup in Brookline. 

Tomorrow's schedule is the same as today's. We will know later tonight what the matchups will be, they are due within 2 hours of the last putt.  Stay tuned! Go USA
