Mickelson was on the practice range mid-day at Le Golf National when he received a text message from Furyk - who was following the Jordan Spieth-Justin Thomas morning match, the only one that the US won in the Four-balls session That's when Mickelson knew he was not among the eight Americans playing in Saturday's Foursomes.

Golf Is A Mind Game created a tale-of-the-tape infographic breaking down each team's stats this season.

Hatton then found some spark of his own as he rattled in an 18-foot putt on the eighth to huge roars from the galleries, and while Johnson brought it back to two up with a birdie putt on 11, Casey's fifth birdie of the day put Europe three up with four to play. Europe has kept the same lineup that allowed it to sweep the foursomes session on Friday.

Woods partnered Patrick Reed in the morning's fourballs, and they were the only US pairing to lose as the holders made a dominant start at Le Golf National on Friday.

Molinari and Fleetwood, nicknamed "Mollywood" as a duo, went one better when Woods was paired with Bryson DeChambeau in the Saturday afternoon foursomes match, and boat-raced them, 5 & 4. "Those are the emotions you go through in a Ryder Cup".

Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton fell three down to Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas when Spieth made five birdies in the first seven holes, but the English pair fought back superbly to get back on level terms after 13 holes, only for Thomas to crucially birdie the 15th and hold on for victory.

Four-time major champion McIlroy looked a shadow of himself in Friday's opening fourballs as the USA swept the first three matches, but he and Garcia formed a reliable partnership to chalk up a sixth consecutive point for Europe.

Declan Rice 'Leaning Towards' Making England Switch
The 19-year-old has been in negotiations over a new deal for a while but the two parties are apart in their estimations. But the Daily Mail have weighed in with a report claiming that the offer was as low as £12k-per-week.

The Northern Irishman, who failed to card a single birdie alongside rookie Thorbjorn Olesen in Friday's 4 and 2 loss, reeled off four Saturday on the front nine at Le Golf National to seize control over Koepka and Finau. "We've had a great time".

Woods will face Jon Rahm in the fourth match out in Sunday's Singles.

In 1999, at Brookline, Furyk salvaged what had been a disappointing week with a resounding singles victory over Sergio Garcia, playing his part in a remarkable American rally in which they won 8 ½ of the possible 12 points.

"That was the plan through the whole week, we wanted to get everyone on the course today". Both players had their moments, and a victory in this match is nearly imperative for the Americans. We ran up against two guys that were both playing well.

What to expect: You can bet Woods and Reed will come out fired up.

"The Europeans played very good golf this afternoon on a hard setup and in hard conditions and we didn't play our best golf. They did that a lot to us".

The Italian did even better than that, draining his birdie try to secure his first-ever full Ryder Cup point on his third appearance in style.
