Amended Ryder Cup Schedule
By Kickntrue on 10/1/10
Because of Friday's nearly 8 hour rain delay- the format for the rest of the Ryder Cup has changed. All 12 players from each side will play the rest of the way out- with a full session being eliminated. These changes are somewhat due to the fact that the captains came to an agreement that no matter what, all matches would end by sunset on Monday. Any matches still in play Monday at sunset will be considered halved.
And according to the PGA, due to the rain delay, all 12 players from each team will play tomorrow and Sunday. Second session is six foursomes; third session is two foursomes, four fourballs; final session still 12 singles.This will help make up about 4 hours. This is a pretty big change- but I think a necisary one, especially with more rain in the forecast. It could hurt a player like Europe's Lee Westwood, who is coming off an injury and will now not get a break.
Monday Finish A Must

With all the groups out there, I wonder if they'll do a 1st/10th tee start to try and make up additional time.
I'm just happy that ESPN and NBC came to their senses and will broadcast Saturday's matches LIVE starting at 2am on ESPN, and then switching to NBC at 8am. I have no idea why NBC thought they could get away with a taped delay. Hopefully the idiot that made the original decision got canned....
