Only Nicolas Colsaerts spoiled the Americans' fun. Europe's only rookie single-handedly kept his team from being swept, making an eagle and eight birdies as he and Lee Westwood beat Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker 1 up. Woods had a chance to earn a halve, but his 15-footer ran along the edge of the cup and kept on going.
Woods and Stricker fell 2-and-1 in foursomes, and have lost four straight in match play.
