I'm one of the reasons we lost Ryder Cup, says Woods

Francesco Molinari right and Tommy Fleetwood have been unbeatable at the Ryder Cup

Two foursomes wins for the U.S., who had trailed 8-3 earlier in the day, kept the visitors' hopes of a spectacular comeback alive at Le Golf National.

Europe's Danish captain Thomas Bjorn (C) raises the trophy flanked by his team as they celebrate winning the 42nd Ryder Cup at Le Golf National Course at Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, south-west of Paris, on September 30, 2018.

Overall, as I said above, the USA got out played and Thomas Bjorn and the Europeans set up Le Golf National in their favor to help that happen.

"This team has been incredible from the start, " Molinari said.

Trailing 10-6 going into the final day of singles, the Americans needed to put red points on the board early to build momentum.

Woods played twice, and at times it looked as though he were playing by himself. USA captain Jim Furyk said he would shake up the order for Saturday afternoon foursomes, and that meant keeping Lefty on the bench.

"There's always a moment where it looks like a spark of light, " Furyk said. Why did Woods go 0-4-0 a week after winning the Tour Championship? "When it was there for us, Europe played really well".

Patrick Reed was the only other United States victor, though, as Rahm capitalised on another below-par showing from Woods to secure a hugely significant point and Europe won six of the last seven contests, Olesen providing a highlight in his first appearance since Friday morning as he cruised past the previously impressive Spieth.

'I'm hoping that can turn the tide for us'. McIlroy acknowledged he "didn't have my best stuff out there this morning, but Sergio was encouraging me".

Spieth will take on Thorbjorn Olesen in the seventh Singles match while Poulter goes out just beforehand against Dustin Johnson.

Thomas noted that, "we're not even halfway done with this tournament", and Spieth said the key was to keep the lead to four or fewer, keeping the competition in reach before Sunday's singles matches.

Sergio Garcia was in tears. A 3-1 win, though, did very nicely indeed for the home team. That final victory over Rickie Fowler made Garcia the biggest contributor in Ryder Cup history with 25½ points.

However, a sensational streak of eight successive European wins - including a clean sweep of the opening foursomes session - followed and Jim Furyk's men were left with far too much work to do.

"We're really, really, really happy with how it's gone these past two days", Bjorn said.
