Europe's heartbeat Poulter ready to feed off Ryder Cup roar

Europe's heartbeat Poulter ready to feed off Ryder Cup roar

"That record's not something that I have really enjoyed and I've really liked seeing", he said. One of only three Ryder Cup rookies on the team is Justin Thomas, who already has won a major and reached No. 1 in the world. Europe retained the trophy in 1989 but lost in 1991 and 1993 - the last time they lost at home - and Europe have won eight of the last 11 Ryder Cups. Furyk played on the US Ryder Cup team on 9 occasions, and was on the winning side twice in 1999 and 2008. "Hopefully, that will change this week".

He's not putting any special importance on facing Tiger Woods, who snapped a five-year win drought on Sunday at the US PGA Tour Championship for his 80th career title. So Rory, he decided it was a ideal time to take a picture in my underwear and post it on the chat and say I couldn't handle him hitting it past me every single drive.

Rory McIlroy says the goal for Europe in the Ryder Cup is to beat the Americans, not just Tiger Woods.

One year ago, he was riding in a cart as a vice captain in the Presidents Cup, having played one PGA Tour event in two years with no certainty there would be another.

Robin Tiger Williams, 17, was born the year Woods completed his famous "Tiger Slam" when he held all four golf majors at the same time.

"Because of jetlag, I was completely asleep", Rahm said. Once I got on to that first tee on Friday morning, I thought, "oh, this is a little different than I expected".

"It would always be great playing Poults", Reed said, not backing down at all.

"Can't you tell the difference?"

The Met Office still advised that people pay close attention to information being issued on its website. The storm is expected to be ripped apart by stronger wind shears in the Caribbean Sea this weekend.

"I think this week will be exactly like that, but I think the decibels will be up a little higher". "A guy with his status and that number of wins, he can flip the page and turn his attention to this week". "The team room is there for privacy".

"Fran's has made me giggle for about 10 hours now", Tommy Fleetwood said. "There's no atmosphere in golf that compares with the Ryder Cup and we are thrilled to be able to make this "bucket list" golfing experience a reality for so many YGT customers".

Woods played his first practice round Tuesday with Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed and said this week's event will be an "awesome environment".

Woods and Mickelson have not been paired together since the U.S crashed to a humiliating defeat to Europe in 2004.

"I do have an idea of what Captain Furyk is thinking, yeah", Mickelson said with a grin, allowing for no other detail.

"It's massively different. You're here, there's 12 players, the Captain, the Vice Captains, the backroom staff and there's the whole continent behind you". The foursome matches also take place on Friday, these are expected to get underway at 1.50 according to the Ryder Cup website. The Ryder Cup attracts huge sell-out crowds with imposing grandstands and vociferous support, with the American crowd sometimes being accused of crossing the line in a sport renowned for its etiquette.

Woods has not won a Ryder Cup match since a 4&3 victory over Italy's Francesco Molinari at Celtic Manor in 2010, going winless in 2012 at Medinah and missing the past two Cups with back issues.

The next generation of Americans looked up to him as the legendary figure who inspired them when they were kids. Europe almost pulled off an incredible victory against one of the strongest USA teams of them all, captained by Nicklaus himself, in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
