A strong start from Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm couldn’t stop Team USA moving into a 3-1 lead over Team Europe after the opening session of the 43rd Ryder Cup.

Garcia extended his advantage as Europe’s record scorer when he formed an all-Spanish partnership with Rahm to win the first point of the foursomes, seeing off Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth 3&1 in the star-studded top match.

Dustin Johnson and two-time major champion Collin Morikawa saw off Paul Casey and Viktor Hovland 3&2, while rookies Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele won each of their first five holes on their way to a 5&3 thrashing of Ryder Cup stalwarts Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter.
