Ryder Cup 2018 LIVE: Europe look to build on first day lead

Ryder Cup 2018 LIVE: Europe look to build on 5-3 lead on day two after stunning fightback at Le Golf National

  • The 2018 Ryder Cup officially got underway at Le Golf National on Friday
  • Europe got off to a disappointing start, losing the fourballs action 3-1
  • But they bounced back in style on Friday afternoon against the United States 
  • Thomas Bjorn’s men won the foursomes 4-0 on Friday, to claim a 5-3 lead 

History was made on a dramatic afternoon at the 42nd Ryder Cup on Friday as an incredible European fightback turned a 3-1 lunchtime deficit into a 5-3 lead.

Europe’s unprecedented afternoon foursomes whitewash left the Americans in total disarray.

With Tiger Woods, Patrick Reed and double major champion Brooks Koepka left out of the afternoon session, Europe seized the momentum. The remarkable turnaround owed much to the morning lifeline offered by the brilliant Tommy Fleetwood and rock-solid Francesco Molinari. They birdied the last three holes of their fourballs to beat Woods and Reed in the anchor match.
