Recap: Match 4

Print News


Instant analysis: : Two up with two to play, the Americans essentially let their opponents off the hook with consecutive bogeys to allow Garcia to remain unblemished in foursomes despite his own travails. Doubt either side felt good about this result.

Key moments: With a wedge in his hand and his team 1 down, Garcia inexplicably rinsed his approach right of the green at No. 15, easily one of the worst shots he's hit in his brilliant Ryder Cup career. Perry returned the favor when he found the water off the tee at the par-5 18th

Player report cards
Furyk: B. Not many great shots, and he missed a couple of mid-range putts, but he also didn't put his partner in trouble often.
Perry: A-. He did "man up" like Furyk said the Americans needed to and didn't miss a short putt all day. Only miscue was the poor drive at 18.
Garcia: B. The Spaniard wasn't nearly as sharp as we've seen in the past. But he was still pretty good.
Westwood: B. His putting, usually a liability, was steady and will need to be with the rookie Soren Hansen in afternoon Four-balls.

What They Said
Perry: "It was just a battle out there. We fought hard. Jim's a stud. I leaned on him all day. But that's just golf. Kenny and I are a little disappointed, would have liked to have had a full point, but we fought hard all day, and it turned out to be a half point.

"I told Jimmy, I said, 'You're going to have to play the first couple holes and let me settle down a little bit.' I was nervous out there. I never felt that way in my whole life, even in team competitions or anything. I had all the crowd chanting my name. It was phenomenal. I'm guessing the Euros are kind of getting tired of hearing it. But it was great. What an experience, to be able to be here in Louisville in front of my home folks. My dad is out here, I was giving him high fives, my best friends are out here, my kids are out here."

Westwood: "It was always going to be a tough match. When we saw the draw with Kenny Perry and his home support and a battler, and Jim, I have played with Jim a lot and he doesn't give anything away, so we feel like the almost won that game getting a half out of it."
