The Europeans close the gap

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

    Amazing change in direction again in the afternoon’s matches as the teams round into the back nine. Again, the Europeans seem to be making a comeback. Wasn’t Poulter the right choice!

    If Clarke was there he would have done just as well and brought the rest of the team along with them instead of creating division and indifference.
