Following Saturday’s foursome matches, the US team now holds a 7-5 lead. The morning session was remarkable for the manner in which three of the four matches were so one-sided on the front nine – the English pair of Rose & Poulter raced into a 5-hole lead while both the Mickelson/Kim and Furyk/Perry combinations were 4-up. However, all leads were to be challenged by their opponents, with Mickelson & Kim fading dramatically and eventually losing to Wilson & Stenson.
Saturday foursome results:
Cink/Campbell lost to Poulter/Rose by 4&3
Leonard/Mahan v Jimenez/McDowell – match halved
Mickelson/Kim lost to Stenson/Wilson by 2&1
Furyk/Perry beat Harrington/Karlsson by 3&1
