Hole Yards Par Hole Highlights
1 418 4 Johnson's tee shot found the right side of the fairway. Howell used a fairway wood off the tee and hit it in the right rough. Casey's approach stayed in the left fringe. Cink's second shot from 143 yards out went long and left of the green. Howell hit a poor chip and left the ball 15 short of the hole. Casey hit a nice putt, but didn't hole it, giving the Americans a chance at winning the hole by getting up and down from the fringe. Johnson blew his chip 10 feet past the hole. Cink missed the par putt coming back and what seemed like a sure win for the Americans turned into a halve. The match stayed all-square.
