Clarke and Westwood never trailed in this one, which was over seemingly before it even began. Haas and DiMarco both looked tired right from the start after playing together Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. They ran into trouble right away on the 1st hole, easily giving the Euro team a 1-up lead they would never relinquish. The U.S. duo is now 1-1-1 in three matches together.

The U.S. pair birdied two straight holes to take a commanding lead on the 5th and 6th holes and never trailed after that. Levet struggled with the putter, missing a few short putts. Twice the U.S. duo went 1-down early, and each time they rallied to square the match on the very next hole. Toms and Mickelson are now 3-1-1 playing together in the Ryder Cup.

Garcia solidified his place as one of the top Ryder Cup players of this generation in this one, teaming with Donald to win, moving the young Spaniard to 3-0-1 so far in this Cup. The Americans were 3-down through 14, but rallied to get 1-down entering the final hole. But matching pars on 18 clinched the match for the Euros and gave their side the largest two-day lead in Ryder Cup history.
