Twitter reacts to Europe flipping script on US early in Ryder Cup
Team USA dominated Team Europe at the 2016 Ryder Cup, and for a while on Friday it looked like history may repeat itself in 2018. That was until the European team came out and steamrolled the US in the afternoon foursomes.
In the morning fourballs, Team USA looked like it was going to be tough to beat when it took three of the four possible points. By the time the day was over, Europe had a 5-3 lead and had become the first European Ryder Cup team to ever sweep a foursome session. None of the matches were close.

Twitter was left stunned by how quickly things turned:
US is officially in trouble.

Fell asleep watching golf. Wake up to find America being wrecked, just destroyed. Also, our Ryder Cup team is losing.

The 'strongest American team in Ryder Cup history' is currently self-imploding in spectacular fashion. President Trump may not let them back into the country if this carries on.. pic.twitter.com/XsOCaaFc7B

Phil and DeChambeau are in the process of playing the worst Ryder Cup match in history. USA getting blitzed in afternoon after 3-1 morning edge.

Can only guess the European side had early dinner reservations, and needed to get out of there quickly. They sweep foursomes for the first time ever. Lead 5-3 after day one of #RyderCup

There is still plenty of golf left to play, but Team USA may have a difficult time bouncing back after such an abysmal showing.
