Tiger Woods takes another tumble at Ryder Cup

The 2018 Ryder Cup

"We need a big couple of points early on, and then the pressure moves exclusively on to them", said Spieth, who has three points from four matches here with Thomas.

The suggestion was that he had be goaded by an American spectator although Europe's captain, Thomas Bjørn, insisted that he had not seen the incident. Playing against a team like that, that's putting that well, you're going to have to make a lot of birdies.

So we begin with this question: What happened to the super pairing of Reed and Jordan Spieth?

In the pivotal match - the one at the top of the order - Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, both of whom were rested in the morning, were down early on to Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler. We need every single man on the course to do their bit and really play hard and be determined to win this back.

"We knew how much was on the line to keep that distance", Stenson said afterward, still buzzing from his clutch finish. That is not how things played out.

Woods, alongside Patrick Reed, lost the fourballs session yesterday and both players were dropped for the afternoon leg.

This week's two wins take 38-year-old Garcia's career Ryder Cup points total to 24.5 - half a point behind the competition's all-time leading scorer Nick Faldo. Same with captain Jim Furyk, who is keenly aware of the Americans' struggles in the event and has been around for all the recent changes that were supposed to put the Americans on a better path to greatness. Europe pulled off such a comeback en route to a 14.5-13.5 victory at Medinah in 2012, and the USA overcame the same deficit in 1999 to win by the same score at the Country Club. "I love playing with this guy", said McIlroy. Even more satisfying was that three of those points came at the expense of Tiger Woods.

Spieth and Thomas were magnificent in their thrilling, 1-up fourballs win over Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton, but were off-colour against the excellent Molinari and Fleetwood. Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson showed up on Saturday afternoon in their foursome match against McIlroy and Poulter.

Molinari and Fleetwood were also in danger of suffering defeat when they lost three holes to par on the front nine to trail by two with eight to play, but Molinari birdied the 11th and 12th, Fleetwood repeated the feat on the 15th and 16th and Molinari finished it in style with another birdie on 17.

It was the second time in as many Ryder Cups in Europe that Mickelson, who holds the Ryder Cup record with 12 appearances, did not play on Saturday. "And then we didn't do anything from there", said Woods, who will again meet Molinari and Fleetwood in the afternoon foursomes with Bryson DeChambeau.

It was Woods' misfortune that he went up against Fleetwood and Molinari in each match.

"Everything feels pretty good", Woods said when asked about how his body is holding up. But the grind of a longer-than-expected season following his comeback from back surgery, along with the emotional stress of winning the TOUR Championship a week ago, may have left him exhausted coming to Paris.

"That's the nature of match play".

"I'd be disappointed if he said he thought he was going to play two".

And that's exactly the way the European team wants Reed: silenced.
