I think this European team has more emotion than the Americans and that equates to extra passion. I can really feel the depth of emotion among our boys, especially with Tommy and Francesco. Neither of them appears to have a weakness in this matchplay format.
I know Tommy is a supposed rookie but I fully expected him to adapt well to this environment. He’s proved himself a class performer while Molinari is the Open champion.
To win four matches in a row as a pair is a special achievement. It’s the first time that’s been done by two Europeans and captain Thomas Bjorn will be looking to them as his linchpins again on Sunday.
They are both consummate professionals and it’s wonderful to see the level of excellence they have produced. There’s no hiding place out there in these matches.
Tommy and Francesco seem to have a real affinity for each other. Seve and Olly were the same.
They were great friends, great golfing warriors and I knew they would win whichever American combination I put them up against. Seve was a bit older but both had terrific passion.
The Justin Rose Henrik Stenson combination is almost as strong as the Fleetwood-Molinari one. Stenson was fantastic in the afternoon foursomes and the 10-foot putt he holed at the 15th was critical because they were only one up at that point and needed that to go in to stop Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka’s comeback in its tracks.
It was great to see Europe follow up their 4-0 foursomes whitewash on Friday by taking the first three fourballs on Saturday. That’s seven straight points they picked up.
But Jim Furyk’s men did well to rally. The Americans may be down, and they’ve clearly got a helluva lot to do to get back in this match, but it’s not over till it’s over.
