Did the Americans choke away the 2012 Ryder Cup?
Europe won back the Ryder Cup from the United States, winning 14 ½ to 13 ½. And it all came down to the 12th and final match between Graeme McDowell and Hunter Mahan with a dramatic 3 & 1 victory for the northern Irishman.
Ernie Els, Matt Kuchar and Nick Watney are on the course, trying to keep pace with clubhouse leaders Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari at 4 under. Only half of the 156-player field completed their first rounds before darkness halted play Thursday night.
