The United States are on the verge of recapturing the Ryder Cup as the tournament enters day 3 on Sunday. The U.S. holds a commanding 10-6 lead needing 14.5 points for victory. However, the singles can bring up all sorts of drama and the U.S. team will be looking to start powerfully to ensure they put the result beyond doubt early. All the action from day 3 can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The U.S. won five of the eight points available on Saturday, and had it not been for a dramatic European rally right at the end of the day then the match could have been even further out of Europe's reach by now.
However, Europe have given themselves an outside chance at retaining the prestigious trophy after winning the final two matches at the end of the day to leave a four point deficit.
In the morning session the plan for the United States was to start strongly and extend the lead they had worked so hard to gain on Friday. And that's exactly what happened; the United States won three of the four points on offer in the morning's Foursomes.
It looked like they would repeat that feat in the afternoon session's fourballs but a late and dramatic resurgence by Europe saw them claim two late points to give them a fighting chance moving into the final day.
McIlroy and Poulter were 2 down with just 6 holes to play, but they amazingly managed to turn things around and won their match to pull Europe back from the brink.
