Ryder Cup: Day 2 preview
By Torleif Sorenson on 9/28/12
When the sun rises on Medinah Country Club on Saturday morning, the home team will have a healthy lead, thanks mostly to strong play on Friday afternoon.
But after going 0-2 on Friday, Tiger Woods is on the bench for the first time in his Ryder Cup career.
At Friday evening's presser at Medinah, U.S. captain Davis Love III insisted that he and his assistant captains had planned all along that none of his team members would play in all five sessions - and this sounds credible, given the four-week FedEx Cup playoffs that led up to this weekend's matches. Plus, Woods did not play badly on Friday afternoon.
But Belgium's newest sports hero, Nicolas Colsaerts, was draining long putts practically from the Loop, including a shocking dagger at 17 to guarantee the European team at least a half-point they badly needed.
SATURDAY MORNING FOURSOME PAIRINGS:
MATCH 1, 7:20 a.m. CTIn the United States, NBC will carry the Ryder Cup from 8:00 a.m. CT until a scheduled 6:00 p.m. CT conclusion, or very probably when the last ball is in the hole after 6 p.m. The remainder of the broadcast and webcast schedule is available here.
