Colin Montgomerie teamed with Padraig Harrington Friday morning to defeat Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson 2 & 1 to the lead European squad to a 3 1/2 - 1/2 lead after the morning fourball matches at the 35th Ryder Cup.

The Americans never led in any of the matches. The nerves showed for nearly everyone early as just six of the 16 players in the morning matches hit the first fairway. Darren Clarke and Miguel Angel Jimenez rolled to 5 & 4 win over the United States pair of Davis Love III and Chad Campbell.

Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Englishman Lee Westwood won three of the first four holes as they cruised to a 4 & 3 win over David Toms and Jim Furyk. Ryder Cup rookie Chris Riley got up-and-down for par at the last to give he and partner Stewart Cink a halve in the final match against Paul McGinley and Luke Donald on the South Course at Oakland Hills Country Club.

You would think that the US would have an advantage as its being played at Oakland hills which is similar to US open golf - high irons to fronts of greens. Also you have 3 of the top 5 in the world playing for the US.

But all that doesn't matter, it doesn't matter how many top golfers the US has. It doesn't matter how good they look on paper. The Europeans will beat the US and the Yanks won't stage a miracle comeback this time. :approve:

Powered by Colin Montgomerie and Padraig Harrington on Friday, the European squad rolled to a 6 1/2 - 1 1/2 lead at the 35th Ryder Cup Matches. Montgomerie and Harrington won both their matches Friday, including a 4 & 2 win over Fred Funk and Davis Love III in the afternoon foursomes, or alternate shot, matches.

The European team shares the largest lead in Ryder Cup history through the first set of matches.
:approve:

Tiger Woods today claimed his first point of the 35th Ryder Cup as the United States tried to recover from a record deficit.

Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke have another point in the bag in the foursomes and Europe now lead the United States 9-4 at Oakland Hills today. :party-smiley-018:

Yeah Tiger seems to have lost his growl and the Yanks certainly got spanked....

Yeah Monty has been having a rough time of it what with his divorce and missing the cut on a few...

Fitting way for him and Europe to win...

It was almost too good, I'm sure Poulter's match finished first!
