Question of the Day
Martin Kaymer, Europe, def. Steve Stricker, United States, 1 up.
Stricker took the early lead with a birdie on the second hole, though this match was going to be a struggle all day. Stricker’s bogey on the sixth squared the match, and Kaymer took a 1-up lead to the back nine with a birdie at No. 9. Kaymer’s clutch par putt on the 12th from about 10 feet gave the German a 1-up lead, but he hit a poor shot from the first cut by the 15th green and missed his par putt. The match was tied with three holes to play. Both players made nervy par putts on the 16th. Stricker was in the best spot behind the 17th green, but he bladed his chip about 7 feet by the hole and lipped out the par putt as Kaymer took the lead. Kaymer only needed to not lose the 18th for Europe to retain the cup. He was 30 feet away, Stricker at the back of the green. Stricker misread the putt and left it 8 feet left of the hole, only for Kaymer to run his putt some 6 feet by. Stricker made his par, and Kaymer calmly sank the putt to set off the celebration.
Francesco Molinari, Europe, halved with Tiger Woods, United States.
The trouble with putting Woods in the last match was that his point might be irrelevant. It only counted toward the final score. Woods made only one birdie against Molinari. The Italian jumped out to a 2-up lead and never trailed until early in the back nine. Molinari made bogey on No. 12 as the match fell back to all square, and Woods made about a 6-foot par putt on the 13th to go 1 up for the first time. Molinari birdied the 14th to square the match. Molinari had a chance to go 1 up until missing a 12-foot birdie on the 16th. Woods went 1-up on the 17th when Molinari chipped too strongly and missed an 8-footer for par. Ahead of them, Kaymer won his match to assure Europe keeping cup. Woods missed the green to the right, chipped to 3 1/2 feet and missed the par putt. He conceded Molinari’s putt from about the same distance, giving Europe the half-point it needed for the outright win.
