Ryder Cup update, Friday afternoon
By Torleif Sorenson on 9/28/12
FRIDAY MORNING FOURSOMES SUMMARY:
MATCH 1Ryder Cup rookie Keegan Bradley is attacking the golf course and the Matches seemingly without an ounce of fear - and it paid off. Bradley drilled a long bomb to win the first point of the Matches for the United States. And when the gallery exploded in applause, the only thing missing was the Chicago Blackhawks' goal horn going off in the background.
Surprisingly, Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker struggled on the course against Poulter and Rose, losing 2-1.
FRIDAY AFTERNOON FOUR-BALL PAIRINGS:
MATCH 1Dustin and Kuchar both sat out Friday morning, so the two of them playing together appears to be a good tactical move by U.S. captain Davis Love III. But perhaps they should be playing in place of Woods and Stricker.
The grounds crew rolled and re-cut the greens, so they will be playing faster this afternoon, putting a premium on putting.
The broadcast and online schedule is available here.

Aw, $#%&... I meant to type Matt Kuchar, but I was typing the pairings as they were announced and was trying to type quickly, so I foozled it. (Spelling error since corrected.)
