Fleetwood very nearly holes out from the sand! He’s bought a 3 footer left for his par. Cantlay then gets even nearer; that’s a par, no question. So can either Hovland or Thomas drain their birdie putts and find the spoils?

Cantlay dumps his second into sand guarding the front of the inexperienced. Next up Fleetwood, who follows him in there! Hovland is third up, and he sends his means over the flag; he’s left with a 30-footer from the fringe at the serve. And finally JT, by some distance the longest off the tee.

He’s somewhat nearer than Hovland. Massive putting shootout coming up!

Cantlay and Thomas decide turns to split the golf green. They’re in fine fettle. The gauntlet is down at Europe’s toes. Fleetwood follows the Individuals down the center … then Hovland, after being attacked by a mosquito and stepping away from the shot, makes it four fine drives out of 4. Given the conditions, that is reasonably something.

Fleetwood lags his long birdie putt to kick-in differ, and it’s conceded. Neither Hovland nor Cantlay can tickle in their slippery downhill efforts. So it’s appropriate down to Thomas, who has a downhill set of his gain for birdie and the win, albeit from worthy nearer differ. He’s the width of one dimple from dropping it into the left-hand facet of the cup, nonetheless the ball stubbornly stays up, and we’ll be going down 18. A nice gap for Europe, this. Astronomical for the USA, too, as they won’t deserve to cede any momentum, nonetheless now no longer now no longer up to the hosts secure loads of room for error.
