Piers Morgan and Paige Spiranac baffled by Ryder Cup blunder
Piers Morgan and Paige Spiranac were left in disbelief after American golfer Rickie Fowler conceded a crucial putt, ultimately handing the Ryder Cup victory to Team Europe. The decision left both Morgan and Spiranac appalled.
Fleetwood takes the lead
In a singles match-up against Tommy Fleetwood, Fowler needed to secure a point to keep Team USA's hopes alive for a comeback. However, Fleetwood took an early lead and never let go, securing a two-up lead on the 10th hole.
The turning point
Fleetwood's magnificent tee shot on the 16th hole put him in a prime position to claim victory. With Team Europe needing just half a point to secure the cup, Fleetwood had two shots to make after hitting the green. However, Fowler conceded after Fleetwood's first effort fell just a few yards short of the hole, ultimately sealing Europe's win.
Morgan and Spiranac speak out
Piers Morgan expressed his shock and labeled Fowler's decision "bonkers" for giving up the game. He took to Twitter to share his thoughts, stating, "I wouldn't concede this putt to one of my sons, let alone gift the opposition a Ryder Cup. It's not 'good sportsmanship,' it's bonkers."
Paige Spiranac, a fan of Fowler, also criticized the American's concession, writing, "I know Rickie is a nice guy, but you don't concede that putt." She further expressed her opinion by sharing a meme poking fun at Fowler's lackluster performance in Rome, where he failed to score a single point.
