Ryder Cup morning recap: (Almost) all the way USA

Devil Ball Golf

The Saturday morning foursomes didn't quite go according to Europe's plan; three of the four turned the USA's way, including one of the most decisive thumpings we've seen in quite some time in Ryder Cup play. This one's going to leave a mark.

Match 9: Rose/Poulter def. Watson/Simpson, 1-up: The first foursome of the day was one of the best, a match that varied back and forth between two outstanding Ryder Cup players and two of 2012's major winners. In the end, Poulter and Rose were just too much for the Americans to handle.

Match 10: Bradley/Mickelson def. Westwood/Donald, 7&6: The best pairing of the Ryder Cup is Mickelson and Bradley, and this was the absolute drubbing of the Cup so far. The two former No. 1s had absolutely nothing for the Americans, who relentlessly closed out the match hole after hole.

Match 11: Dufner/Z. Johnson def. Colsaerts/Garcia, 2&1: Colsaerts was a putting wizard on Friday afternoon, but didn't quite have the same mojo on Saturday morning. Dufner and Johnson were able to get going early, getting two up by the fourth hole and holding off a mid-round Euro charge.

Match 12: Furyk/Snedeker def. McIlroy/McDowell, 1-up: The FedexCup mates reversed Friday morning's result in a match that was the United States' from the very start. The Americans won the first hole with a birdie, and would vary between 1-up and 2-up the rest of the match.

Final standings after three sessions: USA 8, Europe 4.
