Poulter-Rose earn Europe badly needed point


MEDINAH, Illinois (AP) -Ian Poulter came through again, teaming with Justin Rose for a 1-up victory over Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson and giving Europe a point it desperately needed at the Ryder Cup on Saturday.

The Americans lead 6-4, but are up by multiple holes in the remaining two foursomes.

Led by Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson, who are 3-0 after a 7-and-6 thrashing of Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, the Americans have been overwhelming.

Europe has had few answers, and captain Jose Maria Olazabal turned to Poulter and Rose to try and stem the momentum. Poulter holds the Europe record for winning percentage at 10-3-0, and he didn't disappoint Olazabal.

They played just well enough to hold off the Americans, closing out the match when Simpson missed an 8-footer.
