BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- The 35th Ryder Cup Matches continue with Friday afternoon Foursome matches. These are alternate-shot competitions, with each golfer playing every other shot for that pairing.

Chris DiMarco may have emerged as the emotional leader the U.S. has been looking for in this match. DiMarco made a short par putt to give the U.S. duo the lead, walking off the green pumping his fist with excitement, then he made a birdie on 6, again gesturing to the gallery. The duo clinched a win when Haas put an approach on 16 close to the pin, securing the U.S. team's first full point of the 2004 Ryder Cup.

A nice approach by Harrington on 6 set up an easy birdie putt by Monty to put the Euros 1-up. They never looked back from there. Monty continued his brilliant Ryder Cup play, increasing his career record to 18-7-5 in his seventh career Cup. Meanwhile, Love struggled throughout the day. Monty and Harrington blew right through Tiger and Phil in the morning Four-ball match.

The match reached 18 at all square, but Mickelson lost his drive way left, forcing Woods to take a drop as the American team double-bogeyed the final hole and Sutton's Dynamic Duo lost its second match of the day. Early in the match, after no U.S. pairing ever had a lead in the morning Four-ball matches, Tiger and Phil finally grabbed the first U.S. lead on the 2nd hole, then won each of the next two holes as well to take a commanding 3-up lead. But they lost it just as quickly as they grabbed it, dropping the 7th, 10th and 11th holes to fall to 1-down. On 17, Clarke hit his tee shot on the par-3 into a greenside bunker and Westwood couldn't get it out, moving to match back to all square.

Garcia improved his Ryder Cup team record to 8-1-1 as he and Donald never trailed in this one. Donald drained a short birdie putt on the 2nd to win the hole. The teams halved the next seven holes, but the young Euros won with pars on the 9th and 10th holes to take a 3-up lead. The U.S. team went on a late run, starting with a very long Perry birdie putt on 13 -- perhaps the longest putt an American made all day -- and then Donald missed a short par putt on 14 to fall to 1-up. But a bogey by the Americans on 15 gave one right back and they never made up that difference.
