What started as a friendly golf exhibition is anything but that now, with day one of the 44th Ryder Cup now under way.

Europe have raced to 6.5-1.5 lead after a clean sweep in the opening foursomes and a gutsy fightback in the afternoon fourballs, crushing Team USA’s afternoon fightback.

The Americans have not won on European soil in 30 years. This could be their best chance to end that drought, coming off a 19-9 trouncing of Europe in 2021 at Whistling Straits, though it began in an inauspicious manner.

What is the format of the Ryder Cup?

There are four foursomes matches and four fourball matches on both Friday and Saturday. Sunday then features 12 singles matches as each European player goes head-to-head with an American opponent. For more information about how this works, and the difference between foursomes and fourballs, see our guide to the competition rules and format.

What are the tee times?

This year in Rome, the foursomes matches will be in the morning with the fourballs in the afternoon (this is sometimes the other way around). Fourball matches take longer because all four players in the group play their own ball.
