The U.S. entered day 2 with a 5.5 – 2.5 lead and the Europeans needed a strong second day to get back into the competition. Unfortunately, the U.S. just continued their impressive play into day 2. They split 2-2 in the morning matches and then won 3 of 4 matches in the afternoon for a huge 10.5 – 5.5 lead going into day 3. The Europeans will have to win 9 of 12 singles matches to win the Cup. No team has ever overcome that large of a lead.
