“Expect a backlash”
Captain Thomas Bjorn has warned his players to expect a USA backlash on Saturday morning.
“I didn’t really have to tell them much. They are keen to get out today,” he told the Golf Channel.
“When the bear is poked it comes out strong and we are aware they will not be happy with their performances yesterday afternoon so we’re expecting some very strong opponents out there.”
Asked whether he was thinking of resting McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood or Francesco Molinari – the European players who have played all three sessions so far – the Dane added: “I wanted to get everyone on the golf course yesterday and assess where we are.
“We will make assessment this morning on where we are with fitness and energy levels. We will assess about 11 to 1130 this morning.”
