Team USA Quote

"It's been fantastic.  Miguel made the putts today.  I hit a lot of good shots, a lot of great shots.  But didn't make any putts.  Just didn't make any putts.  He chipped in one time but he putted really well and that's the name of the game in these matches, you've got to putt well and the whole team has putted well this week.  I just haven't made any putts."
-- Bubba Watson

Team Europe Quote

"Well, it's very special, especially to get the score, we have the lead, 9 1/2-6 1/2 last night, but you know, it's going to be a big point there because they are very good players on both sides. Like you see on the board, it's very important that everyone wins his singles today. And today the game facing to me, I got my point there and helped the team to win The Ryder Cup."
-- Miguel Angel Jimenez
