Ryder Cup 2021: 7 smart decisions Steve Stricker and Team USA have made (and one word of caution)

HAVEN, Wis. — The disclaimer we need to make here is that no captain is an island. Steve Stricker could dial up all the right moves, but if his American players didn't execute over the course of the first two days of play at Whistling Straits, none of it would matter. There would be no 11-5 lead entering Sunday singles at the 43rd Ryder Cup and whatever wisdom he brought to the table would never be recognized. Padraig Harrington is staring down that reality now; you can nitpick anybody's captaincy, but the Irishman has been largely free of major errors yet his team has been wiped out by superior competition. Stricker has an incredibly deep, productive team that has performed on the course under pressure and that, coupled with home course advantage, has a way to make a captain look good no matter what's happening behind the scenes.

Ryder recaps: After fourballs split, U.S. leads 11-5

Team USA began Saturday afternoon's Ryder Cup fourballs session with a 9-3 lead and teammates Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger shotgunning beers on the first tee. It quickly appeared that maybe that kind of celebration was premature, as Europe led three matches quickly, but the Americans held off an afternoon charge by the Europeans to split the fourth and final team-play session, 2-2. The U.S. will now enter Sunday's 12-match singles session with an 11-5 lead and will need just three-and-a-half points to win back the cup.
