USA takes 3-1 lead after first session of Ryder Cup

Ryder Cup 2018: First pairings for Friday matches announced

The Finau and Brooks Koepka duo were in the middle of a tight match against Justin Rose and Jon Rahm, when Finau teed off at the par-13 16th at Le Golf National.

It struck a female fan in the head, leaving her with a serious gash above her eye which required medical attention.

Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson reunited their highly successful partnership to hammer Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler 3 and 2 having been 5-up after 11. But Poulter and McIlroy found their game, won four straight holes in the middle of the round, and never even breathed heavy after that.

Tiger Woods bemoaned his and Patrick Reed's failure to make any birdies over the closing stretch Friday as they were beaten by Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari at the Ryder Cup.

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 numerous big name Americans fell apart.

Senate panel receives new Kavanaugh allegations
Senator Chuck Grassley, who chairs the committee, said on Wednesday the hearing will go forward as planned. He also chastised his colleagues for politicizing the issue before hearing Ford and Kavanaugh testify.

The festivities begin from Le Golf National in Paris early in the morning USA time.

McIlroy sank about a 6-foot birdie putt on the 6th hole, then Simpson missed a par putt on the 7th hole that would have halved the hole. Molinari closed it out with a birdie on the 17th. Logically, Finau and Koepka will be paired together again Saturday morning, and then all 12 players from each side will compete in Sunday's singles matches. They haven't led after an opening session since 2006.

The US, seeking a first overseas win in 25 years, had the better of a topsy-turvy fourballs session, with Spieth particularly impressive when he and Thomas beat Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton 1-up.

In a flawless world both Mickelson-DeChambeau and Simpson-Watson - who are 0-2-0 in foursomes play when teamed together compared to 2-0-0 as a fourball team - would have been better served in the morning format, but then that wasn't the plan.

Johnson missed a 5-foot par putt to fall 1 down through eight holes. That gave the United States a 3-1 lead headed into the second event.
