MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) - It's another big day for the Americans, who have a commanding 8-4 lead over Europe after winning all but one foursome Saturday.
It's the largest lead after three sessions for a U.S. team since the Ryder Cup expanded to include players from continental Europe in 1979. The Americans need 14½ points to win the Ryder Cup.
Just as they did Friday, Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickleson led the U.S. rout. Their 7-and-6 thrashing of Lee Westwood and Luke Donald tied the mark for most lopsided score in an 18-hole team match. Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson beat Nicolas Colsaerts and Sergio Garcia 2-and-1.
The Americans closed the session with Brandt Snedeker and Jim Furyk's 1-up victory over Europe's top team, Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.
Europe got its only point from - who else? - Ian Poulter and Justin Rose, a 1-up victory over Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson.
