Europe four points away from winning the 44th edition of the Ryder Cup golf

Europe is four points away from winning golf’s 44th Ryder Cup after dominating the second day on Saturday, although the United States improved in the afternoon, played in four balls.

Ahead of Sunday’s final day of competition, which includes 12 singles matches, the Europeans have a 10.5-point lead to the Americans’ 5.5 points when they are 12 points up for grabs.

In Rome, the Americans won the afternoon session 3-1, but the Europeans continued to dominate the morning, with Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg beating Scottie Scheffler and Brooks Koepka by clear numbers.

In the afternoon, Patrick Cantlay and Wyndham Clark regained some ‘honour’ for the United States, beating Matthew Fitzpatrick and Rory McIlroy, but the mission remains difficult.

It will be the second triumph in three years for the Europeans, who conceded in 2022 after prevailing 19-9 in 2021, while the United States still ‘dreams’ of a first triumph in Europe since 1993.
