New schedule leads to busy Ryder Cup Saturday
Ryder Cup: Europe rallies back
Team Europe made a charge before Ryder Cup play was suspended on Saturday.
NEWPORT, Wales – Here’s one wager we would make: If you had a ticket for Saturday’s action at Celtic Manor, you sat in on history, the busiest day in Ryder Cup history.
Just how hectic was it? Six players from each team played at least 30 holes, while the average player went 27.5.
The busiest? That would be Luke Donald (33), while teammates Ross Fisher, Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell all went 32, as did Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker. Padraig Harrington and Lee Westwood went for 31, and four Americans – Jeff Overton, Bubba Watson, Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar - totaled 30.
The quietest? Four Europeans played just 21 holes: brothers Edoardo and Francesco Molinari and Peter Hanson and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
