And They're All on the Course
Well, that morning play sure was fun. The Americans won the morning matches for the first time since 1991 with exceptional play by Hunter Mahan, Stewart Cink and Phil Mickelson. It might have been nastier if Anthony Kim hadn't just chunked that bunker shot on 18, but the tough team still got away with a half point.
Now on the course, Mahan continues his confident play, making birdie on the first hole to get that American squad one-up after one in that match. Currently, Padraig Harrington and and Graeme McDowell are absolutely destroying Kim and Mickelson, three up through four on the American superstar duo.
Team visor, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose, are one up over Stever Stricker and Ben Curtis and team bumpkin, J.B. Holmes and Boo Weekley are off and running on the first fairway.
I'll keep you updated through the rest of the day and hopefully the Americans can expand on a dominating 3-1 score this morning.
