Wow. Incredible day for Justin Leonard and Hunter Mahan–the U.S. MVPs for day one.

They took out Garcia and Jiminez 4&3 in the afternoon during the fourball matches, and beat down Stenson and Casey 3&2 this morning in the foursomes. Great start for the U.S. guys. If J.B. Holmes and Boo Weekley hang on to win, the Americans will have a solid 6-2 advantage after the first day. That will be tough to beat.

Great start. I hoped my European prediction would be wrong, and, to this point, it is. But there’s a lot of golf left. And I don’t think Sergio and Westwood plan on losing both of their matches tomorrow. We shall see…
