JORDAN SPIETH | RYDER CUP

Europe have been handed a boost ahead of the Sunday singles of the Ryder Cup with the news that Jordan Spieth is carrying an injury.


It was revealed at the beginning of Sky Sports’ final day coverage that the 23-year-old, who wasn’t at his best in the shadow of Patrick Reed in yesterday afternoon’s fourballs, injured himself celebrating with Reed after his eagle on the sixth hole.

After sinking his second shot from the centre of the fairway, a pumped up Reed charged towards Spieth and the pair slapped hands, with Spieth jarring his finger. The American’s tee shot on the seventh then found the water.

So what would happen if Spieth was to withdraw? Paul McGinley explained two scenarios: Scenario 1: Each captain has placed a name in an envelope, with no one knowing who that name is. Whoever’s name is in the European envelope will forfeit their match and go up against Spieth. That match will be called a half. Then, Henrik Stenson will play whoever is in the US envelope. Scenario 2: Should Spieth withdraw after teeing off, USA will forfeit the match and Europe will gain the point.
