Ryder Cup Saturday Four-ball matches

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- The 35th Ryder Cup Matches continue with Saturday morning Four-ball matches. These are essentially best-ball competitions, with each golfer playing his own ball and the lowest score counting as the team's total on each hole.

Match is halved
These two teams halved the final seven holes of the match. On 18, Garcia made a huge 50-foot, sloping putt for bogey, but earlier he missed a birdie putt on 17 that woul dhave put the Euros 1-up. Haas and DiMarco never trailed in this one, holding a 2-up lead through six, but squandering that by the 11th hole. In two matches as a pairing, Haas and DiMarco have gone 1-0-1.

Perhaps Tiger just needed a new partner. Paired with Chris Riley, whom Woods had lobbied to play with prior to the tournament, the duo never trailed in this match. Rather than Tiger, it was Riley who made consecutive birdies on 12 and 13, then closed out the Euros with another birdie on 15. Earlier, Woods birdied the 5th to move to 2-up. Woods barely missed a birdie putt on 1, but the U.S. still won the hole when Clarke three-putted to make bogey. On 2, Riley hit a great third shot to within inches, making birdie and securing his team's second straight winning hole.

Casey became the first player in two days to record a par at the ultra-tough 18th hole, clinching a win for the Euros in a match that was back and forth all day. After failing to make one birdie in his first 30 holes as a Ryder Cupper, Campbell drained a birdie putt on 16 to put the U.S. team 1-up. Earlier, Howell birdied 15 to square this match, and before that, Furyk made back-to-back-to-back birdies to grab the first lead of the day for the U.S. on the 13th hole.

After Cink and Love combined for only a half-point in four separate matches on Friday, the two put this one out of reach early with some fantastic play. Love made birdies on 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12 -- three of those to win holes for the U.S. team -- and Cink made a long birdie putt on 16 to close out the Euros. When Cink made par to win the 1st, it marked the first time in Monty's last 144 Ryder Cup holes that he has actually trailed in a match.
