Who is leading the Ryder Cup?

The Americans took a massive lead on Friday at Whistling Straits. Will they be able to keep it going on Saturday?

Update 7:20 p.m. Scottie Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau defeat Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland 3 & 1.

The United States leads 11-5 at the 2021 Ryder Cup. We’ll have the tee times and pairings for the Sunday Singles here when available.

Update 7:05 p.m. Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia defeat Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth 2 & 1. Shane Lowry and Tyrrell Hatton defeat Tony Finau and Harris English 1 Up. Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa defeat Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy 4 & 3.

The United States leads 10-5 at the 2021 Ryder Cup, and are 1 Up thru 15 with Scottie Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau leading Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland.

Update 9:50 a.m. Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth avenged yesterday’s loss, and defeated Viktor Hovland and Bernd Wiesberger 2 Up.

Patrick Cantlay & Xander Schauffele also stopped Matt Fitzpatrick & Lee Westwood 2 & 1.

The United States leads 9-3 in the 2021 Ryder Cup after another 3-1 session win on Saturday afternoon. They will take an advantage into the Sunday Singles no matter what happens this afternoon.

Update Saturday 9:25 a.m. The Spaniards have come through again, as Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm defeated Brooks Kopeka and Daniel Berger 3 & 1.

Also Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa defeated Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton 2 & 1 in the second match of the morning. And the USA leads by at least two shots in the other three matches late in the morning foursomes.

It’s 7-3 USA for now, but we’re likely about to see that lead extended.


The US Ryder Cup team had one of the best days in the modern history of the event on Friday, leading Europe 6-2 after eight matches played in the format that tends to favor the visiting golfers based on history.

But today’s action will give the holders of the trophy a chance to begin their charge. A phenomenal performance from the world’s No. 1 golfer in Jon Rahm helped score three-quarters of the points for his team yesterday. Will anyone else be able to step up to the challenge and make the Sunday Singles at least somewhat interesting?
