Europe looked like it was going to rout the Americans early in the first day of play, but there have been a couple of rallied to get the United States back into it.
Tiger Woods, who hit the opening shot of his day into the water, and Jim Furyk are clinging to a 1 up lead after 16 holes against Colin Montgomerie and Padraig Harrington.
Shreveport's David Toms is getting no help from his partner, rookie Brett Wetterich. Toms and Wetterich are 2 down to Spain's Sergio Garcia and Jose Maria Olazabal.
A terrific rally from Stewart Cink and J.J. Henry has erased a 3-up lead from Europeans Paul Casey and Robert Karlsson. The Americans now lead that match 1 up with three holes to play.
After 13 holes, the final match of the monring session is all square between Americans Chris DiMarco and Phil Mickelson and Euro duo Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood.
