2016 Ryder Cup Friday FoursomesChaska, Minnesota – 2016 Ryder Cup Friday Foursomes Predictions for September 30th:

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.

Predicted result – Halve

2016 Deutsche Bank ChampionshipNorton, 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.
