The U.S. looks to continue its strong play Saturday at the Ryder Cup.
The United States looks to build on its 5-3 lead over Europe during Saturday's Day 2 of the Ryder Cup. And they'll look to do so without Tiger Woods for the first part of the day.
The Friday team of Woods and Steve Stricker will be replaced Saturday with the team of Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson. The teams will play Foursome matches in the morning before playing Fourball matches, which will be announced later in the day.
Woods, who resides on Jupiter Island, Fla., was shut out in his Thursday matches. Watson and Simpson, meanwhile, beat Paul Lawrie and Peter Hanson 5 and 4 while shooting 14-under in 10 holes after sitting out the morning sessions. Watson, who resides in Bagdad, Fla., and Simpson will face the team of Justin Rose and Ian Poulter Saturday morning.
Also on tap for Saturday morning: Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson take on Lee Westwood/Luke Donald, Jason Dufner/Zach Johnson face NIcolas Colsaerts/Sergio Garcia and Jim Furyk/Brandt Snedeker take on Rory McIlroy/Graeme McDowell.
