TIGER WHO?:

Europe face uphill struggle after Faldo's picks backfire (Lawrence Donegan, 9/20/08, The Guardian)

Only a fool would draw definitive conclusions from the opening exchanges of any Ryder Cup but after a day at Valhalla golf club characterised by brilliant golf and boisterous behaviour this much can be said of the 37th edition of the sport's most compelling event: It won't be a European walkover.

Paul Azinger and his fist-pumping, high-fiving, crowd-inciting men will return to the golf course this morning with a three-point advantage over the visiting team, having won five and a half points from an available eight.

Meanwhile, Faldo and his players will arrive knowing they are the first European side to "lose" the opening day since 1995.
