Crushing foursomes sweep puts Europe 5-3 ahead

Europe produced a barnstorming Ryder Cup comeback as they swept the foursomes in devastating style to take an overnight 5-3 lead after the United States has drawn first blood by taking the fourballs 3-1.It was the first time Europe had won all four foursomes matches – having suffered a 4-0 reverse in the format en route to defeat in Hazeltine two years ago – and their first sweep in either format since 1989.

But it was not just the points tally that will have sent European captain Thomas Bjorn off to dinner on a high, but the crushing nature of the victories as the home team dealt much better with the strong wind that developed through the afternoon as many of the big name Americans fell apart.Sergio Garcia and rookie Alex Noren annihilated Phil Mickelson and first timer Bryson Dechambeau 5 and 4 in a battle between four men rested in the morning.Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari, who won Europe’s solitary fourballs point, completed a memorable day by smashing Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas 5 and 4.
