Europe half-point away from retaining Ryder Cup

The Associated Press

GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) Europe is closing in on another Ryder Cup victory.

Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Martin Kaymer won singles matches and Justin Rose earned a half point to give Europe a 13 -9 lead over the United States at Gleneagles on Sunday.

Holding a 10-6 advantage to start the day, Europe is within half a point of retaining the cup and one point of winning outright.

Europe has won seven of the last nine Ryder Cups.

U.S. rookie Patrick Reed, Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar won their matches.

The U.S. faced the same 10-6 deficit that the Europeans overcame two years ago with a stunning Sunday rally in the "Miracle of Medinah." The Americans came back from 10-6 down themselves to win in Brookline in 1999.
