Good afternoon and welcome back to Whistling Straits in Wisconsin for the final day of the 2020 Ryder Cup.
Nine years on from the Miracle of Medinah, Team Europe head into the Sunday singles needing a divine intervention again if they are to retain one of golf’s most prestigious trophy after a dismal pairings result.
If it was a miracle at Medinah it needs to be otherworldly in Wisconsin. Padraig Harrinton’s team heads into the Sunday singles with an 11-5 deficit. The six point margin is the largest Europe have trailed going into the singles since 1981.
The Europeans lost both sessions on Day One 3-1, allowing Team USA to build a 6-2 lead, the Americans’ largest ever buffer after the first day of a Ryder Cup.
The troops tried to rally on Day Two but lost the morning session 3-1 again and only rescued a draw in the afternoon.
All players on both teams will be out on the Straits as the singles as the US prepare to get the party started, while Europe will just be looking to limit the damage.
