MEDINAH, Ill. - Europe needed a huge comeback but didn't get it, and now the 39th Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club is squarely in the sights of the U.S. team.
Dustin Johnson rolled in a long, downhill birdie putt on the par-3 17th hole, the latest in a series of highlight-reel shots for the Americans, and he and Matt Kuchar held off Nicolas Colsaerts and Paul Lawrie as the U.S. stayed comfortably ahead of Europe, 10-6, going into the 12 Sunday singles matches.
"That's the loudest roar I've ever heard, especially for me, on a golf course," said Johnson.
