NBC's Johnny Miller, ever outspoken, weighed in on U.S. captain Tom Watson's decision to sit Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed in afternoon foursomes and declared it a mistake.

"The way that Reed and Spieth played, they should be playing this afternoon," Miller said. "Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson, they need a guide dog…they've been all over the golf course, whereas Reed and Spieth shot six-under this morning, I think, the best of anybody.
"They have a lot of momentum. They're young. Mickelson's going to be tired, I think. Even though [Bradley and Mickelson] haven't lost as a pairing, I still think Reed and Spieth were a better choice."
Reed and Spieth defeated Ian Poulter and Stephen Gallacher, 5 and 4, in the morning fourball. Mickelson and Bradley beat Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia, 1-up.
"Maybe Watson, I don't know, has a hunch that they're going to win again," Miller said. "But it's going to be a tough task."
