Phil Mickelson is trying to avoid a dubious distinction in his afternoon match at Hazeltine. With a loss in the morning session, Lefty now has 20 losses in his Ryder Cup career, tying Jim Furyk for the most in U.S. history. Another today or tomorrow would give him the U.S. "record.'' The most losses by any player is 21, held by Neil Coles and Christy O'Connor both of whom played for the Great Britain & Ireland side prior to continental Europe joining the Ryder Cup.

Glimpse of Ryder Captains future? Jim Furyk chatting with Ian Poulter behind the 3rd green.

The last time I heard this much cheering/jeering for bad shots was in Scottsdale, AZ on the 16th hole of TPC Scottsdale for the Waste Management Open.

This first match of the afternoon features four of the longest hitters on two tours. Each captain is essentially throwing an uppercut and we're gonna see who gets knocked out!

Michael Jordan looks on as the first afternoon group is introduced. I asked the legend if he had his lucky cigars for the afternoon matches cause we were gonna need them, "Oh yeah baby." He said with a smile.

Not a single lead change in any match for the Saturday morning foursomes here at the 41st Ryder Cup. If you took the lead, you never lost that lead. Through three sessions, Team USA still in front, 6 1/2 to 5 1/2.

The Saturday foursomes at the Ryder Cup are complete, and the U.S. now leads 6 ½ to 5 ½ with a fourball session ahead this afternoon. Here are the results McIlroy/Pieters def Mickelson/Folwer 4&2 Snedeker/Koepka def Stenson/Fitzpatrick 3&2 Rose/Wood def Z. Johnson/Walker 1-up Reed/Spieth tied Garcia/Cabrera Bello

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

HOLY MOMENTUM SWING BATMAN!! At one point Spieth and Reed were up by 4. Now Garcia and Cabrera Bello have tied it up!!

Bob Harig @BobHarig

Reed/Spieth were 4 up thru 12, now tied. As good as they have been, this would be a huge negative for the U.S. to tie, let alone lose match

Bob Harig @BobHarig

Spieth barely misses; Rafa makes. All square.. That is the Ryder Cup right there.
