The United States made history on Friday, but not in a good way.
The Americans failed to win a match on Friday at the 2023 Ryder Cup at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club near Rome, Italy, marking the first time the U.S. has gone a full day without a win in the event’s nearly 100-year history.
The Europeans brought their brooms on Friday morning and swept the U.S. in foursomes before 2½ more points to their tally in afternoon fourballs to claim a 6½-1½ lead after Day 1.
How will the Americans respond on Saturday morning? By sending out two pairings from the Friday morning session and sticking with two that earned ties in the afternoon.
Check out the four matches and pairings, as well as the eight players who will ride the pine pony for the third session of matches at the 2023 Ryder Cup.
