Live: Ryder Cup leaderboard

 

Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson are leading the way in what is shaping up to be another big session for the Americans.

The Americans are up in all four matches Saturday, with Bradley and Mickelson 4 up in their foursome against Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. Bradley, a Ryder Cup rookie, and good friend Mickelson took down Europe's two best teams Friday.

Bradley and Mickelson didn't have to make a putt to pick up their first two holes. Mickelson put his second shot on No. 1 within 2 feet of the pin, and the Europeans conceded. They gave the Americans the hole on No. 2 after Westwood put his tee shot in the water and missed the bogey putt. Donald's 6-foot putt on No. 6 lipped out to give the Americans a third hole, and Mickelson and Bradley two-putted from 15 feet on the par-5 No. 7 to go up 4.

Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson also have a multiple-hole lead, 2 up on Nicolas Colsaerts and Sergio Garcia through five holes.

The U.S. leads Europe 5-3.
