Europe sweeps foursomes for first time to start Ryder Cup

 The European team dominated the opening session of the 44th Ryder Cup.

The Europeans won all four foursomes matches, marking a historic first.

The American team struggled to maintain leads in any of the morning matches.

It's only the fourth time the European team has been unbeaten in a session.

Spain's Jon Rahm and England's Tyrrell Hatton secured the first point.

The U.S. needs 14 points to retain the trophy; Europeans need 14½ to win.

Play will continue with four four-ball matches after the dominant European morning.
