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
American Dustin Johnson overcame a field of the best golfers in the world, and some unnecessary grandstanding by U.S.G.A rules officials, to win the U.S. Open, for his first major championship, and claim the number one spot in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, June 21, 2106 edition. Johnson, who infamously three-putted on the 72nd green in last year's national championship to lose to Jordan Spieth by a shot, moves up to 3rd in the Official World Golf Ranking, after a 69 on Sunday gave him a three shot victory over a trio of challengers. DJ's run at number one could be a lengthy one. The 32-year old holds an impressive 1,660 point lead over Ireland's Shane Lowry, who shared second place at Oakmont with Americans Jim Furyk and Scott Piercy. Lowry moved up from 153rd in last week's rankings, and makes his first top 20 appearance in our survey that started in November 2015. Piercy and Furyk also claim top five spots as, predictably, the rankings are completely transformed due to the major championship bonus points on offer this week. Piercy lands at #3, an improvement of 186 places over his ranking on June 10th, while Furyk, making just his fifth start since his return from wrist surgery, makes the biggest jump of the week from 286th to 5th. The only holdover in the Top 5 is World #1 Jason Day of Australia, who holds in the fourth position after an 8th place finish in the second major of the year.
