The 44th Ryder Cup concludes today at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome, Italy, with the fate of the prestigious trophy hanging in the balance. The European Team entered the final day with a significant advantage, leading 10.5-5.5 over the U.S. Team. This commanding lead was built on their exceptional performance in the Foursomes (alternate shot) matches over the previous two days, where they secured an impressive 7-1 record.

For the U.S. Team to retain the Ryder Cup, they need to amass 8.5 of the available 12 points in the Sunday Singles matches, bringing their total to the necessary 14 points. On the other hand, the European Team is just 4 points away from securing the 14.5 points required for victory.

The day promises intense competition, with 12 exciting Sunday Singles matches set to determine the ultimate winner. Stay tuned for updates on each of these matches.

As of 9:33 a.m. ET, there are 10 matches still in progress, and Europe is tantalizingly close, just 2.5 points away from clinching the Ryder Cup. The U.S. Team currently leads in six matches, while the European Team holds the advantage in four.

In the leadoff match, Jon Rahm tied with Scottie Scheffler, leaving Europe within touching distance of victory.

The European Team’s lead extended to 12-6 after Scheffler’s chip on the 18th hole narrowly missed, resulting in a tied match.

Viktor Hovland secured the first point of the day for the European Team by defeating Collin Morikawa with a score of 4 and 3, further solidifying Europe’s position with a score of 11.5-5.5.

Although momentum seemed to shift slightly in favor of the U.S. Team, who now lead in six matches, the European Team remains ahead in four, with two matches tied. The battle for the Cup is far from decided, and the U.S. Team will need to mount a comeback to have a chance of retaining it.

The leadoff match between Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler has been a back-and-forth duel, with Rahm leading by one after winning the 12th and 13th holes. This match’s outcome could set the tone for the rest of the day.

As all 12 matches are in progress, the European Team holds the lead in five of them, while the U.S. Team leads in three, and two matches are tied. The U.S. Team faces a challenging path to victory unless they can secure crucial points in the upcoming matches.

At 7:40 a.m. ET, the first match reached the halfway point, with Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler tied. The European Team maintains its lead in five of the ten matches on the course, with the U.S. Team ahead in three and two matches still undecided.

As of 7:28 a.m. ET, nine out of the 12 matches have commenced. Europe leads in six matches, while the United States is ahead in two, and one match is tied. The U.S. Team’s hopes hinge on a substantial change in fortune.

At 7:05 a.m. ET, only Patrick Cantlay and Brooks Koepka from the U.S. Team hold match leads, as the Europeans maintain the advantage in five matches.

With Europe needing just four points to secure the Ryder Cup, the pressure is mounting as the matches unfold on the final day of this thrilling competition.
