Well, we had the Miracle of Medinah in 2012, what odds the Happening at Hazeltine? Probably quite long, whatever way Europe captain Darren Clarke chooses to jumble his order in the singles. Great day of golf today, but despite stellar showings from McIlroy and Pieters of Europe, it was American Patrick Reed who stole the show. There are highlights of the day's play on now on this very website (until 02:00 BST), or BBC 2 if you prefer. Good day to you.
- US 9½-6½ Europe
- McIlroy/Pieters beat Koepka/Johnson 3&1
- Holmes/Moore beat Willett/Westwood 1UP
- Mickelson/Kuchar beat Kaymer/Garcia 2&1
- Reed/Spieth beat Rose/Stenson 2&1
- Live text of 12 singles matches on Sunday from 16:00 BST
Sergio Garcia talking to BBC Radio 5 live: "I missed so many putts, I felt we both played great. They played nicely but didn't win it, we gave it away a little bit. You have to take those opportunities when you get them in matchplay at the Ryder Cup
On the atmosphere: "It has been quite poor. 85% of people are great. I love playing in America and my girlfriend is American, but the 15% that is really bad makes them look bad, and I feel ashamed for my girlfriend. But it is what it is."
US captain Davis Love sums up how tense the finale was on Sky Sports: "I couldn't decide if I was hungry or getting sick to my stomach. Our guys played great. Europe did great but we were better than they were this morning.
"Everybody has gone out and played, most of the guys have got a point. We are ahead and that's what we wanted to do. We are in a good position and the guys are really pulling together well. It's hard to rest guys who win matches but they have done a great job and shown great attitude. Our guys are bonded together. We always get criticised that we don't get bonded. But this time we took it personally. We have to be focused for one more day.
"I kept wanting to take Jordan and Patrick out to rest. But Tiger has been watching them and he said 'no, no, no, don't take my guys out'. It worked and I'm going to put them to bed early."
Europe captain Darren Clarke on Sky Sports: "Disappointed with this afternoon's result. Hung in this morning and had a few chances this afternoon but that's the nature of the Ryder Cup.
"We're going to have to work hard tomorrow. It's been done before from a worse position. We need to believe in ourselves. There is a precedent.
"This morning we holed the putts, this afternoon the US holed the putts.
Patrick Reed talking to Sky Sports: "We had a huge lead early in the first match and let it slip and I was not going to let that happen again. We knew we had to make a lot of birdies as possible, it allowed me to be a little more aggressive with this guy.
"I live for this kind of stuff, let's go some more. I can't wait for tomorrow"
Jordan Spieth added: "We are just getting started. I rode Patrick's back like no one has ever ridden a partner before. He is as good as anybody on the big stage and that was a lot of fun to be a part of.
"Tomorrow is more significant than either of the last two days. We need to come out and do our thing, play aggressive."
JB Holmes speaking to Sky Sports: "To be able to play for your country is an unbelievable experience and I love this format and playing team stuff.
"You get to be a pro and you can't play team stuff anymore. It's been a blast and a great honour."
Cliff Pike: Lee Westwood or Russell Knox ... you choose. Darren Clarke did and it looks like a howler.
Joshua Lawrence: If only Lee Westwood could putt. Our victory chances gone? 9.5 - 6.5 is a long way back
So, Stenson has to perform another miracle... and he very nearly does, but his ball slides just by. Reed has two shots to win the match... misses the first but taps in the second.

Danny Willett reacts to defeat on BBC Radio 5 live: "We had a good tussle. I struggled a bit, Westy was solid. We couldn't quite back one another up and hole the right putts at the right time. We had chances at 13 and 14, probably four putts slipped away.
"There's pressure most weeks but this is that little bit extra. It's a shame. We hit two great shots in there on 18 and couldn't capitalise. It doesn't change the job in hand. The job is to win all 12 tomorrow. Look at the score there, no one is on 14 and a half yet."
Rose putting from the collar, has to stick it in, but that never really looked in...
Rose's tee shot isn't great at 17, let's see what Stenson can conjure. Pretty decent. But not as decent as Reed, who sticks his to within about 10 feet. Good job, as well, Spieth has gone swimming.
Golf author Dan Jenkins takes the stage...
Phil Mickelson reacts on Sky Sports: "Our team has really shown a lot of heart playing some tough golf this afternoon.
"It is exciting to see the way we have really performed as a team and some of the shots these guys are hitting are really amazing."
That Lee Westwood miss is catastrophic. The gap will surely now be three points overnight.
He was just over the length of his putter from the hole. You can line the golfing technicians up to tell me about putting strokes, misses like that on 17 and 18 are played out between the ears, I don't care what anyone says. In the most respectful manner possible, he has folded like a beach towel.
Stenson has chipped in at 16! Remarkable scenes, it's difficult to remember golf like it. And here's Reed with an eagle putt... doesn't make it, USA two up with two to play...
Former US Ryder Cup player on BBC Radio 5 live
I'm in shock,I feel bad for Lee to not finish that off. I feel really bad for him, even though it was good for the United States. That is a huge swing.
Very seldom do you just get handed a hole but the Americans were handed the 17th, gift-wrapped, and said "go to 18 and see what you can do". We felt like this was going to go to 18 and it has.
Lee Westwood, one of the biggest putts you've probably ever faced. One practice swing, he's over it, just a few feet, it has to be...NO. An unbelievable miss.
Lee Westwood is in the middle of the fairway, Danny Willett is 15ft from the pin. Be aggressive Lee, you have to be. He whips the ball off the fine grass, eyes it up and down, beauty. An absolute beauty. Three feet left for birdie.
Ryan Moore is out of this, he chunks a chip nowhere. Europe are on the brink of salvaging a halved match. JB Holmes can't hole out so it comes down to Westwood's putt. We know what he did on 17...
Rose with his second at 16 and he finds sand. Reed starts walking after his ball immediately and what a shot that is, right into the guts of the green.
You boys looking to fill the void left on our TV screens by this pair?
Leading golf coach on BBC Radio 5 live
Phil loves this situation - he is right in the limelight and all the pressure is on him.
Kuchar to win the match from about six feet but misses to the right. Sergio for his birdie, also from about six feet, and he feathers it in. Mickelson, however, still has a putt for the match... in it goes...
Did somebody say breakfast?
Some slim hope of a halved hole on 18 as JB Holmes and Ryan Moore find sand off the tee. These sand traps are generous though. Danny Willett or Lee Westwood need magic.
A hole where players will trust the yardage book as hitting uphill means they cannot see the surface of the green. Tee shots will not run too far on this slope, so it's a solid iron needed to fire up toward the waiting crowds. A place in history beckons, don't mess it up.
Kaymer on tee at the par-three 17th and he's safely on. Garcia has stiffed it to six feet. Mickelson takes aim and almost gets inside Garcia, that could be the jab that set up the knockout blow. Kuchar almost matches them...
Shout loud enough and Lee Westwood will hear you Michael. Keep it clean. Speaking of clean, that water looks a little dicey. Chocolate brown is never a good thing.
American PGA Tour winner on BBC Radio 5 live
His touch, his feel has been fantastic all day long. His weight, his wedge shots. Are you kidding.
Reed is at it again, following birdie at 14 with another at 15 to take his team three holes ahead. The crowd goes wild, he goes wilder and they're almost home and hosed.
Former US Ryder Cup player on BBC Radio 5 live
That was a great hole for Ryan because he was the only guy in the hole. It wasn't a team event all of a sudden.
This hole completely changed, when JB hit it in the water you thought 'advantage Europe', but then we are in the hole first.
The tide turned on this hole right here. That was an unbelievable turn right there. Wow, huge.
It has to go in Lee Westwood. He stands, white glove stuffed in his back pocket, the stroke is tame, the put is lame, America lead, one up, one to play. Suddenly, the scoreboard looks too red. Darren Clarke has sunglasses on and they are probably hiding a sad set of eyes.
