The impressive performance of the American team at the 2012 Ryder Cup continued on Saturday afternoon, as the team of Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar defeated the European team of Nicolas Colsearts and Paul Lawrie 1-up in a tight match that saw a team lead by no more than 2-up at any point in the round.
Kuchar won three holes for the Americans, capturing No. 2, No. 4 and No. 10 at Medinah Country Club. Johnson won a single hole, saving his best for last in grabbing No. 17. Kuchar and Johnson are now both two for two in the this year's competition, capturing both matches they have participated in.
Team USA now leads the event 10-4, with two afternoon fourball contests yet to be determined.
The day wasn't perfect for the American duo, though, as Matt Kuchar found himself in some trouble on hole No. 16. Have to imagine that is not how he drew it up.
