Positioned as the slight underdog for this year’s event, this year’s Ryder Cup promises to be an epic showdown between some of the sport’s greatest players.

From a European perspective, never before have they been able to field three of the top four players in the world, and Team Europe’s hopes will rest heavily on the shoulders of Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland and Rory McIlroy.

For Team USA, captain Zach Johnson will be relying on the experience of seasoned campaigners Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele.

As is tradition, the home team schedules the order that the matches will be played, and European captain Luke Donald took a slight break from tradition in deciding to open Friday morning with foursomes.

With both teams trying to get off to a fast start, the opening session would turn into a dream for the Europeans, as for the first time in Ryder Cup history they won all four matches.

Jon Rahm and Tyrell Hatton vs Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns – Europe win 4&3

Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler have been battling it out all season on the PGA Tour and the two rivals locked horns once again as they bid for the first point of this year’s Ryder Cup.

Despite Europe’s heavy defeat at Whistling Straits two years ago, Rahm was Europe’s undisputed star with the Spaniard winning 3.5 of Europe’s 9 total points. Undeterred by the challenge ahead of him, he carried on where he left off two years ago.

Making crucial birdies on the third, fifth, seventh and tenth holes. Europe blitzed their opponents with the Americans unable to answer. With the writing on the wall, Europe closed it out on the fifteenth to get the ball rolling.

Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg vs Max Homa and Brian Harman – Europe win 4&3

Match 2 of the morning foursomes was dominated by three rookies, with only Viktor Hovland having played a previous Ryder Cup match.

Much was made of Ludvig Aberg’s selection, but the Swede showed exactly why he is so highly regarded, with a cool and calm display that belied his lack of experience.

Hovland was the key to victory, chipping in on the first hole, the reigning FedEx champion was a class apart and his consistent play ensured that the top two matches would go Europe’s way.

Shane Lowry and Sepp Straka vs Rickie Fowler and Collin Morikawa – Europe win 2&1

With the top two matches already going the way of the Europeans, Team USA was desperate for a response, but it would never come in the third match.

Some poor play from the American pair of Rickie Fowler and Collin Morikawa left the door open for the Europeans, and they gleefully took advantage. Able to keep their opponents at arm’s length, Europe would go on to secure another comfortable win.

Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood vs Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay – Europe win 2&1

With the first three matches going the way of the home team, Europe stood on the brink of something special with the chance to complete their first-ever opening session clean sweep.

In a contest that ebbed and flowed, Europe took command of the tie as they rounded the turn.

Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele had never tasted defeat in foursomes play and they did their best to take the match as deep as possible. With the Europeans leading by just one as they hit the seventeenth tee, Rory McIlroy produced a stunning tee shot to leave Tommy Fleetwood a simple chance to close out the match and session.

With Fleetwood duly knocking in the putt, it cemented Europe’s 4-0 lead and left the Americans with plenty to do as they headed out for the afternoon’s fourballs.
