Rory McIlroy shows up heckling fan(s) at Ryder Cup

Tommy Fleetwood and Francisco Molinari were also extremely solid in their win over Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed, who was looking out of sorts in the morning.

However, Tiger has won four and lost only one of his seven singles contests and European captain Bjorn will be well aware his side's mission is far from complete.

Paris is known as the "City of Light", but United States of America is facing dark times after Europe edged to a commanding 10-6 lead heading into Sunday's final singles session at the Ryder Cup.

Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy led off and were dominating at three-up through 15 holes against Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau in the opening match.

Fans raise cutouts of the faces of Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy in Saturday's Ryder Cup action.

"The Europeans played very good golf this afternoon on a hard setup and in hard conditions and we didn't play our best golf". But after being whitewashed so dominantly and entering the trailing 5-3, the Americans desperately needed to create some early momentum to climb back into the match. We go again this afternoon, that is what we are here for.

The visitors secured a third point as Spieth and Thomas held off a thrilling comeback from Casey and Hatton in a high-quality clash.

There have been more than a few murmurings that Spieth had grown exhausted of Reed, that they didn't get along. McIlroy's chip from the fringes lipped out yet Garcia banged in his putt from range, piling pressure on the USA rookie that made him push his attempt left - back to four up when it could so easily have been two.

But British Open champion Molinari is just focusing on getting Europe over the line as they look to regain the trophy and notch a sixth straight triumph on home soil. The U.S. came back from 10-6 down at Brookline in 1999; the Europeans did it at Medinah in 2012.

The Northern Irishman complained about raucous USA fans at the 2016 Ryder Cup, claiming they overstepped boundaries with comments in certain instances.

No, the European team didn't shut the US out as it did in the Friday afternoon foursomes (alternate shot).

Incidentally when asked about whether their energy levels were waning after playing two 36-hole days in a row Thomas and Spieth had a simple answer: "We are 25 years old". That makes for a dilemma: do you put those differences aside for the good of the team, or are they too great to overcome?

"We know exactly what the issue has been, " Mickelson said prior to the Ryder Cup. "Playing Ryder Cups over here are extremely fun", said three-time major victor Spieth.
