The American’s Ryder Cup losing streak extended to seven, while Tommy Fleetwood became the first ever European to win his first four Ryder Cup matches
Not since the Marshall Plan have the Americans been so generous to Europe. And Tiger Woods has been among the most munificent in this 42nd Ryder Cup.
On Friday, he and Patrick Reed gifted a point to Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood in the opening fourball, 3&1, before he skipped the afternoon foursomes to rest his back. On Saturday, he and Reed gift-wrapped the quiet Italian and his long-haired Southport mate the morning fourball, 4&3. And, as the American team sought to apply a tourniquet to the haemorrhage, the same European combination – Moliwood, as they have become known – were grateful for a 5&4 victory when Woods and the nervous debutant Bryson DeChambeau failed to click in the afternoon foursomes.
