The European team continued to outplay the U.S. team at the Ryder Cup. In the marquee matchups in the morning, the U.S. team was routed. (Full recap here).

Sergio Garcia, paired with Jose Maria Olazabal, beat the power team of Phil Mickelson and Chris DiMarco, 3-2. There is no question that Sergio Garcia is the best player in the history of the Ryder Cup, as Johnny Miller asserted on NBC today. But our own allCarry had the call yesterday here.

Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood shellacked Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk, 3-2. Ian Woosnam now looks like a genius for picking these 2 as his captain’s picks.

It’s not over yet, but the U.S. team is in a world of hurt. NBC’s Johnny Miller was spot on with his analysis again: you can’t expect to win as the U.S. team when your horses of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson keep on losing match after match in the Ryder Cup. This is not about having 4 Ryder Cup rookies. This is about your top guns not performing and getting flat outplayed. Tiger’s losing Ryder Cup record of 8-13-2 is inexplicable for someone who, in close to every other category, is the best player ever.

Follow the afternoon matches, live. If the U.S. team does not rebound in the afternoon, this Ryder Cup will be all but over.
