A draw will do it for Europe

Published 21/09/2008 | 14:15

America goes into the final day of the Ryder Cup with a two-point lead over Europe at Valhalla.

Nick Faldo's men closed the gap at the end of play to keep Europe's chances very much alive.

Faldo has said he is proud of the effort that his team has put in so far.

The competition will be decided today, when all 12 players square off in the head-

to-head singles.

Spain's Sergio Garcia plays rising star Anthony Kim in the first match.

Faldo has saved Ryder Cup veterans Lee Westwood and Pádraig Harrington until last in Sunday's singles showdown at Valhalla.

Westwood faces former Open champion Ben Curtis in the penultimate match, while three-time major winner Harrington faces Chad Campbell in the last match of the tournament.

Fellow Irishman Graeme McDowell takes on Stewart Cink.

McDowell has said that Europe has the momentum going into the final day and will be going all out for a victory.

Europe only needs a draw to retain the Cup.
