Ryder Cup Glance
MEDINAH, Ill. -- A glance at Day 2 of the Ryder Cup on Saturday:
Score: The U.S. team leads 10-6 after matches of alternate shot and better ball.
What's next? A dozen singles matches starting Sunday morning.
Points: Europe needs 14 points to retain the cup it won two years ago in Wales. The United States needs 14½ points to win the cup.
Making history? At a minimum, Europe would have to win eight points in singles, approaching the biggest final-day comeback in Ryder Cup history -- the 8½-3½ drubbing the U.S. team pulled together at Brookline in 1999.
Key statistic: England's Ian Poulter, playing alongside Rory McIlroy, birdied the last five holes in the final match of the day to give Europe a 1-up win over Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner and some badly needed momentum.
Noteworthy: Keegan Bradley teamed with Phil Mickelson in the morning alternate-shot march for a 7-and-6 win over Englishmen Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, making Bradley the first U.S. rookie to go 3-0 in his debut since since Loren Roberts in 1995. The 7-and-6 win also tied the record for biggest margin of victory in a foursomes match.
Quoteworthy: "I believe that momentum will come our way and why not tomorrow?" -- Europe captain Jose Maria Olazabal.
Television (all times EDT): Noon to 6 p.m., NBC.
