Can the United States make a comeback against Europe in the 2018 Ryder Cup on Sunday? It’s an uphill fight since team USA is now down 10-6 after Saturday’s second round play. Tiger Woods may have said it best, referring to his struggles which epitomize the U.S. team’s struggles.
“Everything feels pretty good,” Woods said. “Just pretty (ticked) off, the fact that I lost three matches and didn’t feel like I played poorly. That’s the frustrating thing about match play. We ran against two guys that were both playing well.”
Europe needs 141/2 points to win on Sunday, while the U.S. needs 14 points to retain. You can get 2018 Ryder Cup results and live score updates Sunday here.

Fans are calling Europe’s hot Ryder Cup duo “Moliwood” – the combo of Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood produced at the Ryder Cup on Saturday. Molinari and Fleetwood became the first European tandem to win all four matches. Tiger Woods hasn’t won any of his three matches, while Phil Mickelson didn’t even play.
Europe played Saturday with a consistency that led to winning three of the four matches in fourballs. It created Europe’s largest lead (10-6) after three rounds of play in 14 years.
“The Americans have never made up that much ground away from home, though they were the first to win after trailing 10-6, at Brookline in 1999 when they front-loaded the Sunday lineup with their biggest stars,” the AP reported. “And that was on the mind of European captain Thomas Bjorn, even as he was drowned out by thousands of fans using what was left of their voices to sing, ‘Ole, ole, ole, ole,’ the European anthem for these matches that Americans have heard far too often.”
Woods didn’t get any help from his playing partner Patrick Reed, known as “Captain America” entering the competition. Reed hasn’t been a factor.
“We’ve got some work to do,” Woods said. “Hopefully we can get off to a quick start and get up in some of these matches and turn the tide a little bit.”
Woods is coming off his first PGA win in five years, claiming the Tour Championship last Sunday in Atlanta. He had played his best golf in years in the past two months but has looked flat in France during Ryder Cup play.
“Early in the week, he looked a little tired. His pace looked a little bit slow walking,” U.S. captain Jim Furyk said. “I think that’s expected, coming off a big win. You have to think emotionally what he put into his comeback to this season, the amount of golf he played leading up this, trying to make the Ryder Cup Team, almost winning the FedEx Cup. I mean, he put a lot of work and effort into it and played a lot more golf than he’s used to.”
