Team Europe produced one of the most memorable afternoon’s of Ryder Cup history to go into Day Two with a 5-3 lead, after trailing 3-1 after the first session.

An early start awaited the players and spectators this morning as Team Europe and Team USA headed to the first tee this morning for the start of the much-anticipated 2018 Ryder Cup.

The thaw of the early morning fairways was on show as nearly 7,000 people in the grandstand behind the first tee took to their positions in order to get the best possible view of some of the world’s best golfers.

Coming into Paris, many struggled to separate the two teams with the majority of golfing pundits predicting a tight Europe victory due to their record on home turf. However, with this USA team being the best in recent times, you’d be silly to write them off.

Captain’s Thomas Bjorn and Jim Furyk announced their pairings for the Friday morning fourball session on Thursday evening and there was little surprise to see only one of Europe’s wildcard picks playing.

The fourballs went the way of the USA, who led 3-1 going into the foursomes. However, an amazing display by Team Europe saw them thrash their American opponents in all four games to give Europe a 5-3 lead heading into tomorrow’s sessions.

Here’s how each match played out:
