2018 Ryder Cup: Quotes of the day Friday from Le Golf National

Play began Friday at the Ryder Cup in France. The USA took a 3-1 lead after the morning four-ball play. The only American pairing not to prevail Friday morning was Patrick Reed and Tiger Woods.

Here are some of the more notable quotes Friday from around Le Golf National:

TIGER WOODS

On his play Friday: “I’m not going to work on anything. My game is fine. My cut really wasn’t cutting it off the tee. I was hammering it. The ball was going far. It was going straight, but it was not cutting. I can accept that. That’s really no big deal. I can accept that.”

Rickie Fowler

On his win with Dustin Johnson: “We just played some solid golf. When one of us was out of the golf, the other guy just picked us up. We just played some solid golf. We knew that was going to be needed.”

Dustin Johnson

On his win with Rickie Fowler:”So far, so good.”

Tommy Fleetwood

On beating Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed: “With that morning round being Tiger and Patrick, that’s something to tell your kids about in the future. But whoever it was became kind of immaterial when it came time to teeing off.”

JORDAN SPIETH

On playing with Thomas in a team even for the first time: “It was great. We had a great start. Playing Ryder Cups over here are extremely fun. We were able to feed off each other. We ham and egged around this golf course extremely well. We birdied the same hole once. What a blast. I hope we can feed off it.”

BROOKS KOEPKA

On the intimidating setting around the first tee: “I don’t think anything is intimidating, because I’m here to play golf. It’s not like somebody’s about to beat my brains in.”

On hitting a spectator with his shot on No. 6: “I didn’t know I hit anybody and then someone from the crowd yelled, ‘You hit someone.’ And I turned around and then obviously you see someone’s lying on the ground, and you’re thinking, ‘oh (expletive) I did it again.’”

IAN POULTER

On his win with Rory McIlroy: “I love it. I embrace it. It’s inspiring. I just want to get on the golf course. I want to see the fans and help this team … He needed slowing down if anything …  I could barely keep up with his little legs.”

RORY MCILROY

On Team Europe’s comeback in the afternoon: “You have to persist. Persist. Persist. Persist until it turns around for you.”
