From The Ryder Cup: Brooks Koepka And Scottie Scheffler Suffer Worst Defeat (9 and 7) In Ryder Cup History

ROME — The thing about the Tiger Woods/Stephen Ames match, the famous 9 and 8 won from the 2006 match play, is that one was prime Tiger Woods and the other was Stephen Ames. This, then, has to go down as the most shocking and embarrassing result…maybe in match play history?

Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg, the latter a Ryder Cup rookie with zero major championship experience, just laid the worst beatdown in Ryder Cup history: a 9 and 7 shellacking of world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler and five-time major winner Brooks Koepka. 

The two Americans started the foursomes match horrifically, going double bogey-bogey-double bogey to gift the Nordic pair a 3-up lead despite them playing the first 3 in +1 themselves. It only got worse from there. Scheffler and Koepka combined to shoot a very, very generous +7 through 11 holes. Had they been forced to putt everything out and not conceded so much it probably would've been closer to +10. Truly stunning, and it left Scheffler in tears after the match. 

It hasn't been the best 24 hours for Koepka, who took a swipe at Jon Rahm after the Spaniard made two eagles in his last three holes to steal a half-point in Friday afternoon foursomes. 

“I want to hit a board and pout just like Jon Rahm did,” Koepka said Friday afternoon. “But, you know, it is what it is. Act like a child. But we’re adults. We move on.”

They moved on…to the worst defeat in Ryder Cup history. It somehow continues to get worse for the Americans.
