Hazeltine National Golf Club in beautiful Chaska, Minnesota has become the center of the golf world, as 24 of the best in the sport have gathered to put on an incredible show!

Action starts at 11:00 AM ET so make sure to tune in to catch every birdie, stroke and (fingers crossed) hole-in-one.

This final day is more like the golf casual fans know and love. Day 3 features 12 singles matches. Each match features one player from each team, and the player with the lower score on that hole wins that hole (if the score is tied, the hole’s point value is halved.) This unlike the prior two days, where they played fourball and foursomes.
Foursomes was when a two-man team plays another, with each player on a team taking turns hitting the ball (think “tag team golf.”) Fourball is a style of play where two teams of two golfers play with four individual balls. The lowest score from each pair will count for their side, per Sky Sports. There are 28 points total to be won (8 the first day, 8 the second and 12 on the third) during the Ryder Cup and the first team to 14 1/2 points wins!
The Ryder Cup is the time when golf fans usually cut lose and have fun. Normally quiet and reserved out of respect for the athletes, the Ryder Cup is a chance for golf fans to act like sports fans. Along with dressing up in elaborate costumes to support their favorite players, they also break out in chants – even chanting for non golfers, like when the fans cheered Amy Mickelson, 44, the wife of golfer Phil Mickelson, 46.
Who will be left cheering at the end of the day? Europe has won the cup for the last three times in a row, but the Americans opened the tournament with a commanding lead. There’s only one way to find out!
Who do you want to win the Ryder Cup, HollywoodLifers? Are you chanting “USA! USA!” or are you going “OLE! OLE! OLE!” for the Europeans?
