European celebrities can claim they were playing in the first Laver Cup, but they are not much of a test for Ryder Cup captains Davis Love III and Thomas Bjorn. The duo each won two of their four matches, with Ian Poulter winning the Cup’s only point of the day.

Love and Bjorn had plenty of international recognition both on and off the course, including John McEnroe and Justin Timberlake at the team’s first match and Bjorn and wife Madeleine attempting to have fun through some silly slides and her name being spelt incorrectly on their captain’s scoreboard.

Not everyone was celebrating though. Former Internationals World No. 1 Sergio Garcia is upset with Europe’s golfers for their win, and Poulter’s comments that the World team were playing a game and not playing the Ryder Cup.

“It seems Europe wants to play that way. They’re telling you to chase and you have to chase with the limit on the line, which is a lot of fun for the fans,” said Trey Wingo, host of FOX Sports Live on FOX Sports.

James Paul sits down with Bubba Watson, who broke his wrist last week playing with Jordan Spieth in the Nordea Masters in Sweden, at Gleneagles and explains why “it’s your turn to make a birdie.” Paul also spoke with Ian Poulter about what was not fun in the Danish heat and talking with the King of Denmark. Plus, Paul reports from the Champions Golf Tournament and has a look ahead to some of the big moments in the upcoming season.
