Though the 2017-18 season is in the books, we did not have to wait long at all to indulge in more thrilling golf action. As it does every other year, the Ryder Cup has arrived to provide us with a tremendous end-of-year event filled with national pride and manned by the absolute best golfers in the world. The United States is going for its second straight Ryder Cup (first in Europe since 1993) starting early Friday, while Europe looks to bounce back from a disastrous loss two years ago. The last two times the U.S. has won, it has gone a combined 7-1 in the first matches, so a hot start will likely be paramount if the Americans going to repeat.
The action begins at 2:10 a.m. ET and continues through a second session beginning at 7:45 a.m. The golfers will play four-ball in the morning and foursomes in the “afternoon.” For a full breakdown of the format and schedule for the day, be sure to hit the links to the right. Regardless of how it goes down, Friday should be a thrill as these 42nd Ryder Cup matches get going.
