How Europe’s ‘Miracle at Medinah’ unfolded
Question of the Day
Lawrie mercifully closes out Snedeker at No. 15, the earliest end to any match. Good thing, too, because the Americans manage to take only 1 1/2 points from the six matches that reach the 18th. Europe claws back to 10-8.
At the 17th, meanwhile, Poulter gets his hands on the lead for the first time in his match against Simpson. Despite falling temperatures, the noted clotheshorse is still playing in shirt sleeves. Embroidered on his left sleeve is a silhouette of the late Seve Ballesteros, one of Europe’s best and most beloved Ryder Cup players and their captain in 1997.
It IS incredible. The matches stretched for nearly 4 1/2 hours before the U.S. team gets its first point when Dustin Johnson dusts off McDowell to restore the Americans’ lead at 11-10.
But in short order, Rose dispatches Mickelson with three clutch putts in a row _ the first for par from 35 feet and last two for birdies _ turning a 1-down deficit into a 1-up win.
“Now I know how Ian Poulter feels. I had a glance down and looked at my left sleeve,” he says, referring to the Ballesteros silhouette. “That’s the kind of stuff he would have done today.”
Even announcer Johnny Miller is picking up on the vibe: “The impossible is thinking about happening,” he says.
Westwood has a 1-footer to close out Kuchar, 3 up on the 16th green. As he looks over the putt, he looks back at Kuchar to see if the American will concede. Kuchar won’t. Westwood taps it in to even the match once again at 12-12.
