The 2018 Ryder Cup kicked off earlier this morning with the golfers taking the course in Paris. First event action teed off at 2:10 a.m. ET and the Americans took advantage.
The pairing of Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed was the only U.S. group to lose their Friday morning match - 3 and 1 at the hands of Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari.
The twosomes of Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler, Tony Finau and Brooks Koepka, and Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, however, all won their respective matches. That gave the United States a 3-1 lead headed into the second event.
The European side wasn't going anywhere though. The United States side was dominated from the opening tee and ended up losing all four matches.
Europe holds a significant 5-3 advantage heading into the final two days of Ryder Cup action. Can the U.S. bounce back or will Europe take back the Ryder Cup and keep their streak of winning on home soil alive?
