Huge crowds saw the USA dominate the opening morning of the 2016 Ryder Cup

They had seen enough, streaming for the exits after a long day that began with chants of "USA!"

Pieters again faced the duo, this time alongside Rory McIlroy. The ball had barely settled into a greenside bunker when he flipped the fairway wood end-over-end into the air like a baton.

They had a 5-3 lead, the margin after the first day at Medinah four years ago that ended in another European victory.

"A dream start", US captain Davis Love said of his players. Spieth and Reed were unbeaten in three matches at Gleneagles, while Rose and Stenson were undefeated in three matches at the last Ryder Cup. "I think when you do hole a putt or hit a good shot, it just makes it that much more satisfying". "They made a few putts and we couldn't quite buy one", Rose said. Europe won its only hole with a par on the ninth and had a chance to shift the momentum.

It was Justin Rose who hit the first shot for Europe and with the crowd affording the Olympic Gold Medal winner quiet as he hit his tee shot.

McIlroy formed an excellent partnership with rookie Thomas Pieters to beat US Open champion Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar, the world number three sealing a 3&2 win with a stunning eagle on the par-five 16th. "He knows what to say and when to say it. He got some of my best golf out there in the end".

"Looking back, we probably should have given him it", Spieth said later.

The Americans gave away the opening hole when Kuchar ran his birdie attempt 10 feet by, and Europe took it from there.

"It was intended to get Danny and Rafa out there and get the rookies in".

Those matches would be crucial on any Saturday in the Ryder Cup.

Kerry avait proféré au téléphone la même menace à son homologue russe Sergueï Lavrov. Elle a fait plus de 300.000 morts.

"Mickelson parred to win the 15th and Fowler birdied the 16th to square the match".

Most striking was how quickly the crowd cheered bad shots for Europe.

Suddenly the picutre looked a bit better for the visitors after a horrific morning in Minnesota. You are not here playing for yourself, you are here playing for your team, the country and all the fans. "It's a lot of fun".

"There are so many points to play for".

"I wanted to put an exclamation point on that session for us", McIlroy said. "I enjoy that pressure". "And I'm not fazed by anything the U.S. throws at us".
