Round 7 – Castle Stuart – Ryder Cup Day 2 Video

Here is a composite video of  the action during Round 7 at Castle Stuart, which was Day 2 of the Ryder Cup competition between Team Canada and Team Scotland.

The weather on this day was decent, but the wind was up much more than Day 1.  Some rain squalls came through as well.  These conditions were reflected in the higher scores than Day 1 on Castle Stuart.

Day 2 consisted of single singles matches with a twosome out first in one match, followed by a threesome in the next match and then two foursomes with two matches each.

Team Scotland prevailed in a close competition:  Team Scotland 5.5 – Team Canada 4.5

Round 6 – Castle Stuart – Ryder Cup Day 1 Video

Here is a composite video of  the action during Round 6 which was the first of a two day Ryder Cup competition at Castle Stuart Golf Links near Inverness.

Castle Stuart is a modern links design with stunning views of the Moray Firth from most of the holes.

The weather on this day was fantastic.  Little or no winds and overcast, ideal playing conditions.  The scores on this round were the best so far on tour.

The first day of the Ryder Cup between Team Canada and Team Scotland had four matches on the board: a twosome singles match, a threesome singles match, and two foursomes playing fourball (team best ball) matches.
