Match Result

Team Europe wins 5&4

Match Overview

Poulter seized control early in this one, making a 25-foot birdie putt on the third hole for a 1-up lead. Poulter took a 2-up advantage at the fifth hole after Kuchar found the water with his approach shot. A two-putt par on No. 10 was good for a 3-up lead for Poulter. Poulter followed that up with a birdie chip-in on No. 11 to extend his lead to 4-up. Kuchar knocked his deficit to 3-down after a stellar approach on No. 12 set up a short birdie. Poulter ran his lead back to 4-up with a birdie on No. 14. Poulter finished off Kuchar with his seventh birdie of the day on No. 14 for a 5&4 victory.

Key Moment

Poulter took a 1-up lead on the first hole after holing a 25-footer and never looked back, cruising to an easy victory.

Team USA Quote

"It's exciting.  I didn't have a whole lot of fun during my match.  I got run over.  Ian Poulter just played great.  I think I only gave him one hole, and I played steady.  It's a it tough match when he makes as many putts as he did.  It's just really exciting."
--Matt Kuchar

Team Europe Quote

"The Ryder Cup got me excited about the game of golf when I went to the Ryder Cup at the Belfry when I was 17. Every putt is like winning a tournament, so in three days you manage to win 30 tournaments. I love the team atmosphere, the guys, the match play and I love competing."
--Ian Poulter
