Saturday at the Ryder Cup: Team USA fans are filled with hope and optimism
Saturday marked another fun-filled day at the Ryder Cup.
Thousands of golf fans came out ready to cheer on their respective teams, and for many, that was Team USA.
Across Whistling Straits you could feel a sense of hope and optimism as the team seeks to win the cup back from the Europeans.
Thousands of fans made their way from near and far for an experience of a lifetime.
"Our first time both of us being at a Ryder Cup event and the atmosphere is unbelievable, especially after the past year and a half that we've had. Seeing everybody out here having a good time, the camaraderie and all that, it’s great,” said Kevin Nolan, Chicago.
Nolan and his father left their house at 3:30 a.m. on Saturday to drive to the event.
As big golf fans, the two describe it as one of those can't-miss events.
"It’s a once in a lifetime experience, you have to go if it's that close. I'd kick myself for the rest of my life if I never came up here and it's that close to where I live,” Nolan said.
For other fans they say they've been hooked after the first Ryder Cup they attended.
"This is our 4th Ryder Cup. We come often, so we dress up," said a fan from Florida.
"We've been golf fans, long-life friends and this is our 3rd Ryder Cup out here," said another fan from New York.
And while Team USA continues its momentum on the course, other European fans aren't too happy.
"Team Europe, yes yes. It's not looking too good at the minute. But if we can get it near square it would be nice but it's not looking good at the minute,” said Terry Tracey, who is from Ireland.
Team USA needs at least 14 and a half points to win it back.
Sunday's single matches will begin at about 11 a.m.
The winning team trophy presentation is expected to take place following the end of play on Sunday.
