  1. Hole two - Wester Greenwells

    472 yards, par five

    Hole two - Wester Greenwells

    Paul Casey says: "The wind is usually off the right and it requires a well-struck tee shot to find the fairway and reach the green in two.

    "When the pin is on the front the water is not much of an issue but the further back the pin is the narrower it gets and the more precise you have to be."

    Hull & Munoz v Kang & Khang

    Charley Hull and Azahara Munoz are out on the first, where the atmosphere is still bubbling nicely.

    The European duo were unbeaten on Friday winning one and a half points.

    I hope so as well Peter.

    Yesterday afternoon was gruelling for golfers and live texters alike!

    Lizette Salas was wearing ear muffs and a sleeping-bag style coat this morning as she walked into the first tee and immediately set about warming up the fans.

    Hopefully she’ll play with a little more speed today after twice being warned for slow play yesterday.

    Nordqvist & Van Dam A/S Pressel & Alex (1)

    What's this an Anne van Dam iron shot that is not on the money?

    The Dutch debutant sends Europe's second shot just on to the fringe of the green at the first but Sweden's Anna Nordqvist bails her out with a superb putt into gimme range.

    That's what friends are for.

    It means Marina Alex's laser-guided approach into the first counts for nought.

    All square after one.

    Hall & Boutier v Salas & McDonald

    Georgia Hall and France's Celine Boutier face Lizette Salas and Ally McDonald. And they are just running through their routines on the first tee at the minute.

    The European fans are cranking up the noise - noticeably louder than their US counterparts this morning

    Nordqvist & Van Dam v Pressel & Alex

    Morgan Pressel absolutely smashed her tee shot down the fairway on the first.

    But Sweden's Anna Nordqvist is also in decent shape. I'd have thought that Anne Van Dam and Marina Alex should get on the putting surface from there with maybe no more than a three quarter swing.

  9. Hole one - Bracken Brae

    394 yards, par four

    Hole one - Bracken Brae

    Paul Casey has put together a rather helpful hole-by-hole guide to take us through the course. Here's what he makes of the first: "The ideal tee shot is down the left-hand side of the fairway to set up an approach to a raised green.

    "I wouldn't be surprised to see a few birdies here especially as the tee shot is slightly downhill. The bunker in front of the green is the place to avoid."

  10. 'Busy and boisterous'

    It was busy and boisterous around the first tee as the first pairings entered the arena.

    Anna Nordqvist didn’t have the best of days yesterday but she’s with Anne van Dam who carried Solheim Cup veteran Suzann Pettersen to victory on the opening day.

    They play Morgan Pressel and Marina Alex who had a titanic battle for a half against Bronte Law And Carlota Ciganda.

  11. Post update

    The first set of players are on the tee, the dry ice and smoke has dispersed and photographs have come and gone.

    Dutch debutant Anne van Dam is lapping up the applause. The atmosphere is electric again.

    American Morgan Pressel is going to get us under way.

    It's cold out on the first tee this morning lots and a lot of hats are in play to keep warm. Also noticeably more windy than yesterday morning.

  13. Saturday Foursomes

    Right this is how we are going to roll....

    Dutch debutant Anne van Dam and Sweden's Anna Nordqvist face Morgan Pressel and Marina Alex in the opening match of Saturday's foursomes at 08:10 BST.

    England's Georgia Hall, Charley Hull and Bronte Law also all feature for Europe this morning.

    Hall and France's Celine Boutier face Lizette Salas and Ally McDonald, while Hull and Spain's Azahara Munoz play Danielle Kang and Megan Khang.

    Law and Spain's Carlota Ciganda face sisters Jessica and Nelly Korda.

  14. Here we go again

    Europe 8 - 8 United States

    Catriona Matthew's European team will be hoping to replicate the success they achieved last time the event was held in Scotland, at Loch Lomond in 2000.

    Though this is going to be far from easy. I can't imagine she'd have thought Europe would not be heading into the singles without a slender lead.

    But as it it is the scores are level.

    The last time that happened was back in 2011, with Europe going on to win 15-13 at Killeen Castle in Ireland.

    They were of course given a helping hand on that occasion by Cristie Kerr's injury withdrawal and concession to Karen Stupples.
