Ryder Cup day one: Rory McIlroy confident Europe can recover from 6-2 下
The Northern Irishman lost twice in the same day for the first time and did not even reach the 16th hole.

罗里·麦克罗伊 insisted 欧洲 could recover from 6-2 down to retain the Ryder Cup after a nightmare opening day at Whistling Straits.

Padraig Harrington’s side lost both sessions 3-1 and won just one match outright, world number one Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia defeating 贾斯汀·托马斯 and Jordan Spieth in the opening foursomes on Friday morning.

McIlroy lost twice in the same day for the first time and did not even reach the 16th hole in defeats alongside Ian Poulter and Shane Lowry, but insisted: “We can come back from 6-2.”

泰瑞尔哈顿 who partnered Rahm in the fourballs and brilliantly birdied the 18th to snatch half a point against 布赖森·德尚博 and Scottie Scheffler, 添加: “You’re never out of the fight. That was obviously huge for the team there at the end and hopefully that can kind of turn the momentum our way.”

Shot of the day

Bryson DeChambeau has been preparing for a long-drive contest immediately after the Ryder Cup and it certainly looked like it on the par-five fifth.

Moment of the day

Jordan Spieth was left in a near-impossible position after team-mate Justin Thomas missed the green on the par-three 17th, but not only produced a stunning recovery but also did superbly well to keep his balance while almost running into Lake Michigan.

Statistic of the day

The omens do not look good for Europe after day one.
