Fortunately, the USA team holds a comfortable 11-5 lead going into Sunday’s singles matches. The USA needs 14.5 points to win the Ryder Cup, while Europe only needs 14 points following their victory in Paris in 2018.
Finau is enduring his second Ryder Cup event, in 2018 he comfortably beat Tommy Fleetwood 6&4 in their singles bout. He will be looking to add to that tally on Sunday when he squares up against Poulter.
