The Ryder Cup is fast approaching and Captain Luke Donald is in full preparation of his composition for this 2023 edition in Rome. The English captain will try to recover the cup acquired by the Americans during the last edition at Whistling Straits.

This first day of Hero Cup was launched by a single session of Four-Ball Best Ball. After this first confrontation, the continentals take the lead with the score of 3 to 2.

Our two engaged tricolors carried the colors of France high on this first day since they are both undefeated. Antoine Rozner associated with the Belgian Thomas Detry won 2Up against the pair Tyrell Hatton / Jordan Smith, thanks to a beautiful eagle from Thomas Detry to nail the score of the game at 18.

Victor Perez, associated with the Italian Guido Migliozzi, who surely hopes more than the others to be able to participate in the Ryder Cup 2023 at his home in Rome, equalized their match against the pair Shinkwin / Wallace. The two English snatched the draw on the last hole thanks to a birdie from Matt Wallace.

In other matches Thomas Pieters and Alex Noren defeated Shane Lowry and Tommy Fleetwood 1Up, Francesco Molinari and Rasmus Hojgaard drew against Richard Mansell and Ewen Fergusson. Seamus Power and Robert Macintyre bring the only victory of the session to the British by winning 4&3 against Sepp Straka and Adrian Meronk.
