Dufner, Johnson of U.S. Win to Give Americans 2-1 Ryder Cup Lead

Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. team of Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson defeated Europeans Lee Westwood and Francisco Molinari in their foursomes match at golf’s Ryder Cup to put the American squad back into the lead.

Dufner and Johnson secured the win 3 and 2, meaning they had an insurmountable three-hole lead with two remaining at Medinah Country Club outside Chicago.

The U.S. leads the matches 2-1. Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley beat the European team of Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia 4 and 3, before Europe tied the score when Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell beat Americans Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker 1-up on the final hole.

Teammates in foursomes hit alternate shots.

The afternoon session will feature fourballs, in which each golfer in the two-man teams plays his own ball, with the lowest individual score winning the hole. The competition continues through Sunday.
