Europe leads 5-3 after day one at Le Golf National

2018 Ryder Cup Scores

The 2018 Ryder Cup is being held at Le Golf National in Paris, the course that currently hosts the HNA Open de France every year on the European Tour. Captains Thomas Bjorn and Jim Furyk have selected their teams and now we have to wait over a week until play actually begins next Friday.

Last time out at Hazeltine, America secured a 17-11 victory after the secured 7.5 points from the 12 singles matches. The highlights of the event was Patrick Reed‘s incredible singles match with Rory McIlroy which yielded birdie after birdie. Reed managed to win the match 1up on the 18th and any hope of a European come-back was quashed.

There are 28 points available over the three days and because the United States won in 2016, they only need to secure 14 points to retain the trophy. Europe on the other hand have to get 14.5 points to win the trophy back.

Who do you think is going to win in Paris? Both teams have very strong line-ups but Europe have five rookies to America’s three. Could that be a crucial factor come Sunday?
