We love a good prediction like that. Although, I've had a shocker already - wearing American colours aren't I...Simpson holes out but it's Rose and Stenson who are four up through 12.
Many thanks, Tristan. What a morning we've had so far.
And with the momentum swinging back and forth, from Europe to America to no one in particular, I bid you farewell, for now. Here to take you through the back 9 of the morning fourballs is Rob Bartlett. Over to you, Rob.
Spieth builds on that success with a terrific little tee shot into the par-3 10th. The rookies are showing Europe's Match 3 duo how it's done.
Now now, that's enough of the Watson/Simpson bashing for the time being. Reasons to be cheerful for Team USA include Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed moving 4-up through 9 against Stephen Gallacher and Ian Poulter. Reed did the business on the 9th.
One thing's for sure, Bubba and Webb will be taking a break after this morning!
Back up front, Justin Rose plays a regulation shot into the par-4 12th fairway. Henrik Stenson then steps up to smash his effort from the tee straight into the lurking bunker.
Now that's how you do it. Patrick Reed puts it within 10ft at the 9th, shaming Ian 'Poults' Poulter, who has just bashed it straight into the water.
Wooh momma! What on earth was that Ian Poulter. He needs to take a good hard look in the mirror after that shank. On the 9th, he absolutely thins his second shot, sending it bouncing across the serene waters of a nearby Gleneagles lake. Entertaining for American fans, but absolutely awful for Ian.
Bjorn then finishes off a not-altogether-easy putt to halve
Back with Match 2 and Walker has a putt to win the hole on the 10th. Can he do it? Can he...? Nope, he can't. Misses to the right.
Argh, the curse of the commentator. Stenson drops his second shot into the bunker to the right of the green, but with Rose safely on the putting surface, he could afford to be aggressive.
Ok, I'm chuckling to myself here. The momentum is with America, so long as you don't count Bubba and Webb as part of the team. They're being completely outplayed by Rose and Stenson on the 11th.
And Sergio duly pumps his second shot into the bunker off the back of the green at the 8th.
The Big Mo, which for the last two hours has been with the Europeans, could be swinging across the Atlantic right now. The Americans are, most definitely, staging a fightback.
Walker's magic brings the American duo back within striking distance of Bjorn and Kaymer, who now lead by just 1.
News from Match 2, which has been a little quiet of late. Jimmy Walker sinks the most delicious slice-come-chip at the 8th for eagle. Eagle! After the Americans would have paid millions just for birdie. Lovely, lovely golf.
And just as I write that, Justin Rose nails yet another putt on the 10th to put the Match 1 Europeans 4-up.
American fortunes couldn't be more different at either ends of the fourballs right now. Simpson and Watson just can't find a way to get back at Rose and Stenson in Match 1, but Bradley and Mickelson are snapping at the heels of Garcia and McIlroy.
That announcement, for the afternoon foursomes pairs, is about 90 minutes away, Bryce.
Hello, what's this? Keegan Bradley sinks it on the 7th to win the hole and bring the USA back level with Garcia and McIlroy.
Still on the front 9 and it's a change of hats for Stephen Gallacher at the 8th. The move certainly pays off for the European rookie - who has endured a pretty poor start to his Ryder Cup career - and he puts it close with his second.
That's worthy of a BREAKING NEWS klaxon, right?
BREAKING NEWS: Justin Rose has a bee sting on his right thumb, apparently.
Now for the back 9. Can Bubba and Webb turn the European tide?
Hey hey, no need to panic Team Europe. Just as Rory/Sergio fluff their lines on the 7th, Henrik Stenson sinks his put to win the 9th and send the Euro boys 3-up in Match 1.
Rory's slapped it into the bunker, Sergio's left it short on his approach to the green - on this whole, at least, for the time being, the wheels are coming off the European machine.
Casting our eyes back down the course, we find Match 4 approaching the 7th, which is fast becoming the windiest spot in the whole of Scotland.
Actually, tricky doesn't do that shot justice. The wind is really beginning to rip through this Gleneagles course now and nowhere is it swirling more than on the 7th green. Jordan, our man in the hat, gave his ball a nudge, then crossed his fingers that the weather wouldn't spoil his party.
