It was a wild day in Wisconsin, one where the home team rode the momentum to a large lead. The United States leads the Ryder Cup, 6-2, after the opening day. It's their largest lead since 1975. This is the seventh time that a team has earned six or more points on Day 1. The only time that a team failed to win the Ryder Cup after earning six or more points on Day 1 was in 1999 at The Country Club
There are still 20 points remaining, however. Can the United States continue its momentum? Can Europe mount a comeback? We'll have to wait and see.
Until then, let's look at the pairings for Saturday morning's Foursomes matches. The United States won Friday's Foursomes session, 3-1. A repeat performance could put the Cup out of reach, but Europe typically excels in this format.
Here's are Saturday's four Foursomes matches:
8:05 a.m. ET: Brooks Koepka/Daniel Berger vs. Jon Rahm/Sergio Garcia
8:21 a.m. ET: Dustin Johnson/Collin Morikawa vs. Paul Casey/Tyrrell Hatton
8:37 a.m. ET: Justin Thomas/Jordan Spieth vs. Viktor Hovland/Bernd Wiesberger
8:53 a.m. ET: Xander Schauffele/Patrick Cantlay vs. Lee Westwood/Matt Fitzpatrick
