A big ask for Europe to turn this around then - but it’s not impossible.

Join us on Saturday for day two now won’t you?

00:46 , Tom Rostance

00:36 , Tom Rostance

00:35 , Tom Rostance

The USA need to reach 14 1/2 points to win the Ryder Cup, remember. Europe need 14 to retain it.

00:33 , Tom Rostance

Tommy Fleetwood: “It was a pleasure to be involved in that match. We did great, played great and they played some incredible golf. It would have been nice to win.”

Thomas/Cantlay tied with Fleetwood/Hovland

00:31 , Tom Rostance

Thomas rolls it in, the point is shared and USA lead 6-2 overnight.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:30 , Tom Rostance

Fleetwood pops in for par. Well played.

00:29 , Tom Rostance

He didn’t hit it. A long way short.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:29 , Tom Rostance

Hovland doesn’t get particularly close with his putt. So it’s a chance for Justin Thomas to take the point. Not easy. Maybe 25 feet.

00:26 , Tom Rostance

Cantlay also with a superb bunker shot. To within a few feet.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:25 , Tom Rostance

Fleetwood from the sand - almost holes it! What a chip, it skips past the hole and across.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:22 , Tom Rostance

Justin Thomas takes an age over his shot - but delivers. That’s a good approach, high of the hole and in prime position.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:19 , Tom Rostance

Over to you Hovland. On the green but deep.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:19 , Tom Rostance

Cantlay’s second on the finale - in the sand. Tommy Fleetwood up next, plonks it in the very same bunker!

00:14 , Tom Rostance

Even with the tide turning against Europe Rory McIlroy insisted they were far from out of things. “We can come back from 6-2. If it’s 6-2, we can come back,” said the Northern Irishman.

“I haven’t seen Tony Finau putt as good as that in a long time and when you got a couple like that on form, on a difficult golf course where it’s sort of hard to make birdies, if you’re not quite a 100 per cent on top of your game, it’s tough.”

00:10 , Tom Rostance

A European win on this 18th would make such a difference...

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:09 , Tom Rostance

Wow, that’s a superb effort once again - Thomas rolls it stone dead but it’s an inch or so wide.

They will go to the 18th all square.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

00:08 , Tom Rostance

Viktor Hovland is close to knocking in a fine birdie on 17 but it’s long. Can Justin Thomas win the hole?

00:04 , Tom Rostance

Jon Rahm: “We’re a little tired, it was a good battle. The wind picked up but we birdied two of the last three. It feels good to get that half point, things like this can turn the tide.”

Dechambeau/Scheffler tied with Rahm/Hatton

00:02 , Tom Rostance

Tyrrell Hatton - nails his putt! That’s half a point and who knows how important that could yet be?

00:00 , Tom Rostance

Jon Rahm is so, so close...but misses.

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

00:00 , Tom Rostance

Europe will have two chances to nick this. And boy do they need it.

Thomas/Cantlay A/S Fleetwood/Hovland

23:55 , Tom Rostance

The last bit of blue has gone...

Justin Thomas hits an Eagle!

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:53 , Tom Rostance

It’s another belting shot from Tyrrell Hatton on 18. Has he given Europe a chance of nicking half a point?

Thomas/Cantlay v Fleetwood/Hovland 1 UP

23:50 , Tom Rostance

Pressure - Tommy Fleetwood tanks one into the lake. Dear oh dear.

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:49 , Tom Rostance

Scheffler hooks his drive into the crowd again. Dangerous game out there today. Dechambeau lines up and pings it straight as you like.

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:41 , Tom Rostance

Tyrrell Hatton goes for broke and lips out with a massive putt! That was huge. Great effort. It goes to the 18th and there’s still a chance for half a point for Europe.

Thomas/Cantlay v Fleetwood/Hovland 1 UP

23:39 , Tom Rostance

Europe still up in the last match through 15.

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:36 , Tom Rostance

Lovely touch from Rahm on 17 - knocking it to within a few feet.

23:34 , Tom Rostance

Dustin Johnson: “I still don’t feel old but I know I’m the oldest on the team! We had a really good match, tough conditions but we had a lot of fun.”

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:31 , Tom Rostance

U-S-A! U-S-A!

Raucous as both Americans land safely on the green. Over to you, Jon Rahm. Looks a bit chilly now in fact.

Rahm punches in to 17, on the green but a long way back.

23:28 , Tom Rostance

US golfer Tony Finau to Sky Sports: “You’ve just got to enjoy it, all these people out here cheering us on. I learned that in Paris. Enjoy it, it’ll keep you loose and I was able to roll the rock well today.”

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:26 , Tom Rostance

Oh he can! Great clutch putt from Scottie Scheffler. US stay one up with two holes left.

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:25 , Tom Rostance

Fantastic putt from world number one Jon Rahm! That puts the pressure on. Can Scheffler tie the hole?

23:23 , Tom Rostance

It’s still possible for Europe to come out of this session at 2-2 but anything less than that and it’s going to be very tough you’d think.

Johnson/Schauffele beat Casey/Wiesberger 2&1

23:19 , Tom Rostance

And there’s another point on the board. USA 5-1 up!

Finau/English beat McIlroy/Lowry 5&3

23:15 , Tom Rostance

He barely missed a putt all round and Tony Finau sinks one to tie this one up.

USA go 4-1 up.

23:11 , Tom Rostance

The crowd getting rowdier and rowdier out there - a bunch of them are singing the US anthem loudly now as the players hit the 17th green. It’s looking like a very tidy advantage for the hosts overnight.

23:09 , Tom Rostance

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

23:05 , Tom Rostance

‘That’s going to be perfectly fine. If it doesn’t kill somebody,’ says Bryson Dechambeau as he leathers another monster drive down field.

Well done Paul Casey - gutsy putt to pull it back to two ahead with two holes left. If they can possibly come out with a half...

23:02 , Tom Rostance

Dechambeau doesn’t miss though. Huge cheers as the US go ahead and there are three blocks of red on the card...

23:01 , Tom Rostance

But no! Scheffler pushes it past and that second match remains all square.

Dechambeau/Scheffler A/S Rahm/Hatton

23:00 , Tom Rostance

This could be massive. Chance for the US to go ahead...

4 UP Finau/English v McIlroy/Lowry

22:57 , Tom Rostance

It’s a dangerous game being in the crowd on 15 - Tony Finau is the latest to whack his tee shot into the stands.

22:48 , Tom Rostance

It’s some connection too, blows his own cap off as he lands it just wide of the green.

22:47 , Tom Rostance

Scheffler playing his shot now off a gravel path between the grandstand and the crowd. Nobody giving him too much room...

Dechambeau/Scheffler A/S Rahm/Hatton

22:44 , Tom Rostance

The wind must be causing havoc again as Scheffler hits his tee shot into the crowd as well. This all-square match could be crucial.

22:39 , Tom Rostance

But the show rolls on, Wiesberger makes par.

Behind him, Jon Rahm slams his tee shot into the crowd.

22:37 , Tom Rostance

USA have a match point in the opening game...

22:35 , Tom Rostance

Without stating the blindingly obvious it’s imperative Europe hold on to that lead in the last match of the day...

22:34 , Tom Rostance

Another flurry of wins for the US - Tony Finau putts beautifully once more while Tommy Fleetwood can’t make one stick...

Fleetwood to go three up - pushes it wide. He looks to the skies in frustration. Happens to the best of them!

Dechambeau/Scheffler A/S Rahm/Hatton

22:00 , Tom Rostance

Bryson Dechambeau takes on another monstrous drive, nearly 400 yards, it’s aiming into the lake but comes back around - in the bunker on 13 though. Box office stuff!

21:49 , Tom Rostance

The first match is on the 13th hole so time is running out for Europe to stem the tide.

Another big step towards a point for the States as Tony Finau nails another fine putt and Rory McIlroy cannot respond.

3 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

21:39 , Tom Rostance

Dustin Johnson has caught fire in the last hour or so, another terrific putt, right in the meat of the hole on 12.

All credit to Bernd Wiesberger though, keeping his cool in the raucous crowd to halve the hole.

Thomas/Cantlay v Fleetwood/Hovland 3 UP

21:31 , Tom Rostance

Some good news for Europe fans though...

21:25 , Tom Rostance

Tony Finau cups his ear to the baying crowd as he puts USA two up! The red taking hold on the board once again.

21:05 , Tom Rostance

Harris English for the hole - nails it! USA up in three out of four matches now...

1 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

21:04 , Tom Rostance

A flurry of wonderful shots on 10. USA with a chance to go back into a two-hole lead.

Thomas/Cantlay v Fleetwood/Hovland 2 UP

20:56 , Tom Rostance

That’s a belting putt from Tommy Fleetwood on six, snaking it in down the hill! Birdie. Cantlay to halve the hole - too big.

Europe go two up in that one!

1 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

20:50 , Tom Rostance

And that’s a hole won for Europe, well in Paul Casey! That lead has been trimmed from three to one.

1 UP Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

20:49 , Tom Rostance

Red! Bryson Dechambeau nails a lovely longish putt on the eighth to put the States one up.

2 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

20:42 , Tom Rostance

Paul Casey has had a rusty start to his round but that’s a beauty of an approach shot on the ninth. DJ follows up and is in the meat of the green too.

The US lead the first match, Europe up in the last. All square in the middle two.

20:30 , Tom Rostance

Here’s that Bryson Dechambeau, quarter-of-a-mile tee shot a little earlier on.

He’s playing a different hole!

20:29 , Tom Rostance

In really tough conditions these guys are finding some remarkable golf shots. Superb sporting contest, as ever. Europe will be happy with how this session is going.

Finau/English v McIlroy/Lowry 1 UP

20:17 , Tom Rostance

What a shot! Rory McIlroy holes a monster putt on the fifth and wins the hole for Europe. Europe up in two matches now.

Thomas/Cantlay v Fleetwood/Hovland 1 UP

20:13 , Tom Rostance

And that’s back-to-back holes for Fleetwood and Hovland - they lead in the final match.

20:08 , Tom Rostance

Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

20:03 , Tom Rostance

Not even the best can nail every shot though...the course holds its breath as Bryson DeChambeau tees off on the sixth but he’s not happy with it, tops it.

20:02 , Tom Rostance

So the US are up in the first match of the session with the other three all tied now. Anyone’s game.

2 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

20:01 , Tom Rostance

And there’s one back for Europe! Schauffele can’t convert and Europe win the hole.

Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

20:00 , Tom Rostance

Tyrrell Hatton! He putts in from absolutely miles out! That’s superb. But of course Bryson Dechambeau has a putt for an eagle and knocks it in.

Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton 1 UP

19:53 , Tom Rostance

Bryson Dechambeau hits his second shot on a par five to within about 10 feet. Insane.

Thomas/Cantlay v Fleetwood/Hovland

19:52 , Tom Rostance

Hovland chips in - and that’s Europe back level in the bottom match on the card...

19:49 , Tom Rostance

417 yards he hit that. FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTTEN YARDS.

Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton 1 UP

19:47 , Tom Rostance

Bryson Dechambeau has the crowd whooping as he tees off down the fifth - that’s a monster! Over 400 yards. It’s so big that the camera can’t find it and has to pan yards and yards and yards down the fairway. Happy Gilmore stuff.

3 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

19:42 , Tom Rostance

But that’s a commanding lead. DJ sinks his putt on the fifth and the US look good for another point there.

Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton 1 UP

19:39 , Tom Rostance

And that bunker shot pays off! The USA can’t make their put and we have some blue on the card.

Dechambeau/Scheffler v Rahm/Hatton

19:38 , Tom Rostance

Take a bow, Tyrrell Hatton. What a bunker shot that is! Flopped right next to the pin.

19:33 , Tom Rostance

No need to panic yet but the Europeans would love some blue on that scoreboard...

2 UP Johnson/Schauffele v Casey/Wiesberger

19:31 , Tom Rostance

This wind is causing havoc. Paul Casey hits an approach to the fifth which looks spot on but then is carried right over the back of the green. Dustin Johnson responds by putting his shot way short of the green.

Finau/English v McIlroy/Lowry

19:27 , Tom Rostance

Tony Finau with an incredible chip into the third, it’s in...no! Hits the flag and bounces out. Incredible touch that. Some hole this, just a few feet from the water’s edge and the swell shows you how windy it is.

19:24 , Tom Rostance

They’re even watching in space.

19:23 , Tom Rostance

All four of these superstars miss the green on a 169-yard par three. Hope for us all.
