Ireland plays host to Ryder Cup..

Colin Montgomerie, left, made a birdie putt on No. 18 Friday afternoon.

After a day of play the Europeans have a 5-3 lead over the United States.

If you are a golfing fan you can look forward to a lot of great golf on television this weekend. The Irish Government are hoping this event will showcase Ireland as a tourist destination.
