This match featured three players competing in their first rounds of the day, with Rose coming off an emotional victory over Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker. (As we would soon see, he wasn't the only one who would have that feeling this day.)

Rose putted to win No. 1, but that was about it for the European team. Johnson squared it on the next hole; Kuchar won 4, 5 and 7; and from there it was adios. Team USA won 3&2, and it rarely even seemed that close.

The defining image of this match was Kuchar's smile; the guy was grinning on pretty much every single hole. And why not? After hole 5, the Americans never let the Euros get closer than 2up. It's a good sign for Davis Love III, another quality pairing that he'll be able to count on over the weekend.

Jose Maria Olazabal, by contrast, now has another question mark in Kaymer. The onetime PGA Championship winner is now floundering, and didn't win a single hole. How much will Olazabal be able to rely on him?

Current score: USA 5, Europe 2.
