'Captain America' Reed can't shield himself from Ryder Cup criticism

Tony Finau loses Saturday match, will face red-hot Tommy Fleetwood in Sunday singles play

'Captain America' Reed can't shield himself from Ryder Cup criticism

Looking at the match-ups for Sunday's singles play, there are a few instances that favor the Americans, however, they will need to jump on things early and establish a lead to spark the rest of the guys. The Americans need to equal the biggest last-day comeback to hang on to the trophy and, in the process, claim a first away victory since 1993. Playing against a team like that, that's putting that well, you're going to have to make a lot of birdies. Paired with Woods instead of Jordan Spieth-who was paired successfully with Reed in 2014 and 2016-Reed has been uncharacteristically subdued.

Finau and Koepka did a great job to battle back and knock of the #1 player in the world, Justin Rose, who was playing with Jon Rahm. "We can play well and nothing can happen". I know Phil. He wants to be out there just like everyone else.

Europe was inspired by the stunning partnership of Englishman Tommy Fleetwood and Italy's British Open champion Francesco Molinari, who were unbeaten in all four matches together, including a second victory over Tiger Woods - this time with Bryson DeChambeau - in Saturday afternoon's foursomes. You have to think emotionally what he put into his comeback to this season, the amount of golf he played leading up, trying to make the Ryder Cup team, trying to, basically, nearly win the FedEx Cup.

Reed's usual "I-don't-give-a-damn-what-you-think" brash manner has been completely absent this week, and you wonder if it's in deference to Woods.

"It's happened to me many times", he said, claiming he had been accused - falsely - by "four or five women". "She knew Brett. Kavanaugh, in his testimony, is prepared to say that while he did not assault Ford, he was "not questioning that Dr.

Reed was the face of the US victory in the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, but this version of him has been barely recognizable from the one who was labeled "Captain America". The U.S. only won one of its four-ball (best ball) matches in the morning before coming back to win two of the foursomes matches.

"I think we had the momentum going into the afternoon but we just didn't carry it in", said Furyk.

European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn has plenty of memories, too, both as a member of the 1997 team that almost coughed up a five-point lead at Valderrama, and also as a vice captain of that Miracle team at Medinah.

Poulter spoke only about his disappointment at not being able to personally follow-up on his Friday afternoon foursomes win, with McIlroy.

In addition, BBC says the main road to the city of Palu has been blocked because of a landslide and a key bridge is out of action. The city's airport has been reopened only for relief efforts and will remain closed until October 4 for commercial flights.

As it turned out, Saturday turned into another 5-3 drubbing, which added to the first-day issues makes for the largest singles deficit to overcome in Ryder Cup history. At one point, they made, what, six out of eight birdies on the back nine, and only one person was in the hole at a time.

With the contest all square, Molinari reeled off three successive birdies from the 11th before Fleetwood sealed the match on the 15th as Woods could only manage bogey.

Casey's red-hot putter helped him and Hatton to a comfortable 3&2 win against Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler, and Woods was given little support from Patrick Reed who spent most of his time hacking through knee-high rough in a 4&3 loss to Fleetwood and Molinari.

"Everything feels pretty good", Woods said when asked about how his body is holding up.

As for Sunday, he is confident that the American team can spring a shock comeback.
