Ryu made four birdies and an eagle over the first 12 holes, helping the South Koreans take a commanding early lead. Ryu birdied two of the first three holes to help the South Koreans go 2 up. They never trailed in the match.
“Even though we were playing in America, we have a lot of South Korean fans here,” Ryu said. “They encourage us. Everybody had a Korean flag, and they were really cheering us. That was quite a big help.”
