Mickelson, Bradley of U.S. Beat McIlroy, McDowell at Ryder Cup

Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. pair of Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley won for the second time today at golf’s Ryder Cup, defeating Northern Irishmen Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell in an afternoon foursomes match.

Bradley and Mickelson won 2 and 1, meaning they had an insurmountable two-hole lead with one hole remaining at Medinah Country Club outside Chicago.

The U.S. leads the matches 4-2.

In fourballs, each of the two men on the teams plays his own ball -- with the lowest individual score winning the hole for the team.

The U.S. duo beat the European team of England’s Luke Donald and Spain’s Sergio Garcia in their morning foursomes match, in which players alternate shots using the same ball. It was the first time Donald or Garcia lost a foursomes match.

The U.S. and Europe were tied 2-2 after this morning’s matches. The competition continues through Sept. 30, when there will be 12 singles matches.
