2016 Ryder Cup Friday Foursomes – Match One
Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed (USA) vs. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson (Europe)
Based on past Ryder Cup performance, this sets up well for the Europeans. Rose and Stenson are a combined 6-2-2 in Ryder Cup foursomes play, and were 3-0-0 as a team in 2014. The American duo of Spieth and Reed, meanwhile have never won a foursome’s match.
This edge is offset somewhat by form and health issues. Spieth and Reed were both relatively sharp in the PGA Tour playoffs, both reaching the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Neither Rose nor Stenson qualified for the final stage, Rose due to uninspired play and the big Swede due to injury.

Norton, Massachusetts – The PGA Tour Playoffs move to the Boston area this week for the playing of the 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship.
American Patrick Reed won the first playoff event last week at Bethpage Black, ensuring himself a top five position heading into the Tour Championship at East Lake and a shot at the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus.
Twenty-five players were eliminated from playoff contention last week at The Barclays, leaving just the Top 100 players in the FedEx standings eligible to compete this week at TPC Boston.
With Davis Love III‘s Ryder Cup captains picks still to come, several American players will be looking to impress the captain enough to snag one of the four remaining picks on the U.S. team. Included in that group will be defending Deutsche Bank champion, Rickie Fowler, who missed an opportunity to clinch an automatic berth with a final nine meltdown last week.
So who will be the next player to punch their ticket to East Lake? Here’s the 411 on the 2016 Deutsche Bank Classic.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As expected, the opening event of the 2015-2016 FedEx Cup Playoffs, The Barclays, had a big effect on the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 30, 2016 edition.
Barclays’ champion, Patrick Reed, of the U.S.A, moves to number one, up from ninth position a week ago, after posting his first PGA Tour win in almost two seasons. His last victory came at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, in January, 2015.
The Barclays’ win guarantees the 26-year old a Top 5 spot entering the Tour Championship, allowing him to control his own destiny. A victory at East Lake will give him the FedEx Cup championship and the $10 million bonus.
Despite the long victory drought, this is the second time Reed has topped our weekly survey. He was number one for three competitive weeks, and seven weeks overall, aided by the Christmas break, between December 7, 2015 and January 18, 2016.
Reed has a 480 point lead over the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Australia’s Jason Day. Day moves up one spot to number two this week after a tie for fourth place at Bethpage Black.
It’s the 2015 PGA champion’s 24th consecutive week in the Top 10 and fifth straight survey in which he was ranked in the Top three. The last time the 28-year old missed the Top 10 was way back on March 15, 2016.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Farmingdale, New York – After 12 months that produced four first time winners in the majors and the first Olympic Gold Medalist in 104 years, the 2015-2016 PGA Tour season nears it’s conclusion, beginning this week with the playoffs’ first event, the 2016 Barclays Championship.
