Team Europe is already shushing the American Ryder Cup crowd after a single hole

BY foxsports • October 1, 2016

The fierce crowds are part of what make the Ryder Cup so special - the first tee sounds more like a college football game than a golf match than a golf tournament - but Team Europe legend Nick Faldo was critical of the spectators at Hazeltine National Golf Club on the broadcast. Rory McIlroy bowed to the crowd on the green Friday after closing out a win, and explained that it was a premediated celebrated to quiet the hostile crowd. 

Saturday's foursomes matches got off to a spectacular start Saturday with matching birdies from the two teams. Rickie Fowler put his opening drive in a bunker, but Phil Mickelson hit a shot to the back of the green and Fowler knocked in the putt for a huge birdie. 

Thomas Pieters responded with a biride to halve the hole, and he shushed the crowd after the putt dropped.
