Ryder Cup ready to start with pressure on for everyone

30 September 2018

"And this tee shot's as hard a first tee shot as we've probably played the entire season".

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France-Tiger Woods paused on his walk toward the 18th green at Le Golf National and threw his head back in laughter.

"What would make me nervous?"

"It's a daunting week", said Poulter, who recalled his own debut in 2004 at Oakland Hills, and the odd sensations he felt as he walked out for his first match.

"I look back as those videos, it wasn't just Sunday". I out-drove everyone in my group by 20 yards, and I was by far the shortest guy in the group.

Give best over 3 days says Molinari

Before the Tour Championship, Johnson - who returned to world number one - was set to be Team USA's most accomplished golfer in the last 10 years with 19 victories since 2008. This time, however, the players have to switch off hitting the same ball until it rolls in the cup.

"I reached out to him and just talked to him about Augusta", said Thomas, who has practiced alongside Woods in what could be a hint at Jim Furyk's plans to play them together.

Reed is trying to pass on that same bravado to Ryder Cup rookies such as Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau and Tony Finau. He has played 45 matches - one fewer than record-holder Faldo. I'm not really from Texas, so we don't wear a lot of 10-gallon hats in Pennsylvania. Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed are in the anchor match. "I would feel like I went to places where I needed to build back up and learn a lot from my own game, and the Ryder Cup is a situation where you're playing nearly every hole with the same feel as you get on a major championship Sunday in contention". He said Tuesday was more about learning the golf course because only six USA players have seen it. Once I got on to that first tee on Friday morning, I thought, "oh, this is a little different than I expected".

They play against British Open champion Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood.

Simpson had the burden of the first tee shot for the US the last time the Ryder Cup was played in Europe, paired with Bubba Watson in the first morning fourball session at Gleneagles in 2014. It brings a lot of excitement to the game. Historically, the team that has started hottest has won the entire Ryder Cup, and I doubt this year will be any different. Now he is back to being their peer, feeling as much a part of the team as ever, no matter whose picture is on the cover of magazines. Another session of foursomes follow Friday afternoon, and neither was willing to guarantee that everyone will have played by the end of the day.

Apple Watch Series 4 with Bigger Display and ECG Capability Launched
The FDA-approved electrocardiogram records the electrical activity of your heart through a sensor on the back of the watch. Huawei may have announced kits 7nm Kirin 980 last month, but it appears that Apple will be first to ship a 7nm processor.

"It was four points out of 28 that we played for", he said.

"I think that when my game is there, I feel like I've always been a tough person to beat", Woods said. A match can end early if the winning team is up more holes than there are left to play.

US captain Jim Furyk has tried to tone down the hype, though it was hard to ignore that it was a "boost for everyone, and I think for Tiger in general, it's cool".

Watson in 2012 at Medinah was the first player to encourage the massive crowd around the first tee to keep yelling as he was teeing off.

The biggest name in golf took a break from putting practice at the Ryder Cup to get introduced to the teams who contested the junior version of the event on Monday and Tuesday.

USA and Caribbean brace for arrival of Hurricane Florence
Like Hurricane Harvey, which stalled over Texas in 2017, Florence could linger over the Southeast for several days after landfall. He wrote: "My people just informed me that this is one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast in many years".

The duo, then world numbers one and two, were famously put out together by Hal Sutton in 2004 at Oakland Hills and failed to win a point on the opening day - leading very quickly to the experiment being scrapped and never repeated.

The European Tour, maybe hoping to drive out as many European fans as possible after losing to the United States two years ago, has built a huge grandstand on the first tee that will sit up to 6,900 patrons when the tournament kicks off.

Woods was still in high school. Still stinging is the rude treatment, endless cheering and the champagne celebration for the Americans two years ago.

Hurricane Florence Shifts South as Carolinas Hunker Down
The precipitation from Florence will start midday Thursday and then it will rain for four days, said CNN Meteorologist Tom Sater. NASA astronauts used a super wide-angle lens to capture the footage of Hurricane Florence , due to the massive size of it.
