We mentioned on Friday night when previewing the sporting weekend that the golfers participating at the Ryder Cup are simply playing for the honour of representing their teams. There's not one cent of prize money.
But don't think that they aren't trying; check out this shot of Ian Poulter in the afternoon round on Day Two. Storming home with five successive birdies and some superb pressure putting, Poulter was the face of the Ryder Cup as he and Rory McIlroy claimed the final point of the day:
The USA has a 10-6 lead going into the twelve singles matches tomorrow morning (NZ time), but Poulter and his European teammates will not hand back the Ryder Cup without a fight. It's great theatre, great drama and great golf, and we absolutely love it!
