Golf heckler wins $100 off pro at Ryder Cup

Golf heckler wins $100 off pro at Ryder Cup

The crowd at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska was sacked up after the American sweep in the morning, and McIlroy was only too happy to quiet them down in the afternoon in his second Ryder Cup on US soil.

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed set the tone, Rickie Fowler finally won a match and the Americans got this Ryder Cup off to a red and rousing start at Hazeltine with the first sweep of the opening session by either side since 1975.

The second day of the Ryder Cup is underway, and foursome play between the US and Europe is even.

Olympic gold medallist Rose and Open champion Stenson surrendered their unbeaten record to Spieth and Reed, before Lee Westwood and rookie Pieters were thrashed by Dustin Johnson and Kuchar. Fowler and Phil Mickelson lost that hole with a bogey and fell 2 down to Rory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters.

In the second match out, fan favourites Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler were all square with Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy and Englishman Andy Sullivan after two holes while Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson were level with Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Germany's Martin Kaymer after one. "You know, from this morning, from the results after the foursomes this morning, to this afternoon, it was certainly match play golf at its utmost". There, he was trash talking Team Europe players. He also knows what it's like to win.

Europe won the trophy for a third successive time with a crushing victory by 16-1/2 points to 11-1/2 at Gleneagles in 2014.

"We're going to have to play tomorrow, as we've done before from a worse deficit", European captain Darren Clarke said. "So we let him have a go".

Former Israel President Peres' condition deteriorates
The former hawk turned dove is widely respected both in Israel and overseas , regularly meeting world leaders and celebrities. He was sedated and breathing with a respirator in the intensive care unit. "His health position is very, very hard ".

Potash, Agrium to combine and create new fertilizer company
Agrium is also a retail agricultural fertilizer marketer, while Potash Corp .is not in the retail fertilizer business. And that is before potential synergies of US$500 million annually are realized among all the operations.

The Americans are the favorite again, but they have been often over the last decade of futility. Beyond that, he said only that all his rookies would play before Sunday.

Danny Willett says he's sorry.

Golf fan Dave Johnson's heckling paid off. That's why US captain Davis Love III has preached all week at Hazeltine that this team, which only has two rookies, has never played together. Westwood said. "You've done pretty much all you can do". It was Garcia's 16th tandem triumph and Cabrera Bello's Ryder Cup debut. A vocal heckler walked the walk after talking the talk during the practice round on Thursday.

Johnson remarkably managed to shake off one disappointment after another in the majors - the 82 at Pebble Beach, the bunker blunder at Whistling Straits, the 2-iron out-of-bounds at Royal St. George's, the three-putt at Chambers Bay - until he won the U.S. Open this summer at Oakmont. He handed him a putter and golfer Justin Rose put down a $100 bill to bet Johnson wouldn't make the putt in his first try.

The comment that sent the European squad over the edge was when Johnson yelled, "You can't make this putt" at Justin Rose, Stenson's teammate. Then he drilled the putt, eliciting a roar from the crowd.

Ryder Cups are known for being one of the most highly charged occasions in sport and the 41st edition is poised for an electrifying launch at Hazeltine National on Friday in the opening foursomes. McIlroy tweeted while linking the video.
