Rory McIlroy delivers ideal response to loud-mouth American fan

Woods last won a foursomes match with Steve Stricker in 2010. He'd heard the giddy fans in the grandstand stomping their feet and singing, "Gooooooneeeee be the U-S-A!"

"We know exactly what the issue has been, " Mickelson said prior to the Ryder Cup. "We've seen the scenarios play out over the years". Down 10-6, the US needs an early momentum boost to have any chance at a miracle.

Thankfully for Jim Furyk's squad, the Americans somewhat rallied in afternoon foursomes. While certainly not impossible to pull off such a comeback - it was done in 1999 by the Americans at Brookline, and again in 2012 by the Europeans at Medinah - the USA hasn't won the Ryder Cup on this side of the Atlantic in a quarter-century.

Furyk said he didn't think there was anything physically wrong with Woods. "That was one of the worst days of my career".

"I had to leave him a message to tell him, which I don't like to do", Furyk said. "It's in the list of my top-3 nightmares in golf". Both he and Molinari, playing in his third Ryder Cup, can become the first Europeans to remain unbeaten in all five matches Sunday.

"Just started riding that wave again on the back nine when Fran started playing great", Fleetwood said. You go full bore tomorrow. Like the rest of the team, they were unable to sustain that success in foursomes and finished 1-1 on the day. 11, 12 and 13 to give Europe a 3-up lead it would never relinquish.

What to expect: This should be viewed as another must-win for the Americans.

McIlroy and Poulter were not in top form for this match-up but they started to cut loose in the closing stages. They beat Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed, 4&3, and are 3-0 as a pairing so far in this Ryder Cup.

On Saturday, Mickelson sat out both sessions. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson has a 1-3 record, presumptive Player of the Year Brooks Koepka is under.500 (1-2) and three-time victor Bryson DeChambeau has looked wholly out of his depth as a rookie on the road. McIlroy's chip from the fringes lipped out yet Garcia banged in his putt from range, piling pressure on the United States rookie that made him push his attempt left - back to four up when it could so easily have been two.

'They got the points instead of us.

Their only problem? Spieth was draining big putts and letting the world now this point was going to Team USA. "There's no bones about it". The three-time major champion dragged Justin Thomas in his wake until the final few holes as they secured the only American point all morning, keeping the battling Ian Poulter and Jon Rahm at bay 2&1.

At Brookline, the critical moment was then-captain Ben Crenshaw wagging his finger, staring into the TV camera and claiming that he had a "feeling" about what was about to transpire.

That has been the point in the new U.S. Ryder Cup era, since a task force was formed in 2014 to create a smooth transition from Cup to Cup while also allowing the players a voice.
