From Yahoo!Sports, by Oliver Brown:

Pairing two swashbuckling Spaniards will be recalled as perhaps the one coherent decision of Padraig Harrington’s Ryder Cup captaincy. For Europe, the dynamic between Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia has provided a rare but precious connection to the feats of Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal, still the most decorated partnership in this event’s history. “The Spanish Armada,” the pair are being called.  Read more

From Macon/ The Telegraph, by Eddie Pells, AP:

Nobody has collected more wins at the Ryder Cup than Sergio Garcia.

That's a great thing for his career.

It's not so great that it's also true about him and his flailing team from Europe this week. Garcia surpassed Nick Faldo on Saturday with his 24th career victory at the event he treasures the most.  Read more

From Yahoo!Sports/ Golf Channel Digital:

Analysis of the Sunday singles match pairings:

Hoggard: Rahm, Rahm, Rahm. The Spaniard has played inspired golf this week and Scheffler, who has been impressive in his Ryder Cup debut, won’t be the one who keeps him from a perfect 5-0-0 week.

Hoggard: Garcia lives for these types of matchups [Garcia vs DeChambeau] and will, as DeChambeau likes to say, enjoy a spot “rent free” in his opponent’s head with a ruthless game that gives nothing away. The all-time points leader adds to that total.  Read more

From the Ryder Cup, "What they said":

Sergio Garcia: Obviously Jon and I, we did what we had to and what we could, and unfortunately it just looks like the American guys are just playing a little bit better than us, and it's a shame. But you know, we are not giving up. We're going to fight until the end as hard as we can. Hopefully we have a good afternoon this afternoon and see what happens.  Read more
