12:45 PM EST -- Phil Mickelson, Anthony Kim vs. Padraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell
The Americans are too talented to settle for another half point. Look for Kim to play more free after the early Cup jitters are out of his system.
1:00 -- Steve Stricker and Ben Curtis vs. Ian Poulter and Justin Rose
You couldn't have a better match-up for the American rookies. Poulter has looked shaky in the morning round, which bodes well for the U.S. (Plus, at least three visors in this group)
1:15 -- Justin Leonard and Hunter Mahan vs. Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez -- The Spaniard team will be pretty darn tough. The Americans need to build on their morning success but remember it's a completely different match against totally different players.
1:30 -- J.B. Holmes and Boo Weekley vs. Lee Westwood and Soren Hansen --
How redneck can this get? Holmes and his black glove with Boo and his dip spit. I think these two might just keep themselves comfortable to take down the great Westwood.
This looks like good pairings for the American team, who is already up 1.5 to .5.
