Saturday at the Ryder Cup: Heated Confrontations and Hatless Heroes

Andy and Brendan jump on the horn immediately following another full, dramatic, amusing day at the Ryder Cup in Rome. They’re fresh from watching Patrick Cantlay put together a dazzling finish to take the last point of the day, one which included a report that he had become the center of a divisive USA team room. Zach Johnson’s tactics are called into question again, especially his apparent intervention on a tee box with a buddy system duo of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas that’s scuffled through three of four sessions. There’s praise for USA MVP Max Homa, the lionhearted old head Justin Rose, and many others. There is not praise for Brooks Koepka, who was awful in an record-losing performance in the morning. They close with some thoughts on the possibility of a Sunday comeback and where the captains may look for hope, or signs of trouble.
