| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The U.S. domination continues, as Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson won 5 & 4 over Justin Rose and Francesco Molinari in the first completed match of the Saturday afternoon session.


The victory gave the U.S. Ryder Cup team a 9-4 advantage.


Watson and Simpson rebounded after narrowly losing to Rose and Ian Poulter in the morning match, one up.

After a miserable morning, Simpson caught fire in the afternoon with seven birdies. Watson did his part as well, with birdies on two par 5s. 


"I'm the coach," Watson told NBC Sports immediately after the afternoon match. "Webb was a little anxious [in the morning]. We had great opportunities. There were chances we had, and we didn't make them."
