Bjorn & Kaymer also still two up as Thomas Bjorn halves the hole against Fowler & Walker.
Brilliant iron shot from Kaymer and that pairing are going to take some pegging back in this form.
Mickelson is still wearing two gloves for all his shots and sees his birdie attempt come up well short. Fair to say the commentary aren't impressed with his attire!
Poulter with his first telling contribution of proceedings, nailing par to ensure Europe remain just one down. It could've been worse in a dodgy start for his pairing with Gallacher.
Henrik Stenson misses an admittedly tricky chance to move 3 up against Watson & Simpson as all players fail to make par. It wasn't easy but that was a real opportunity.
This is really impressive from Kaymer, looking good all round today and another great approach shot gives Europe hope of moving further ahead on one of the trickier holes: the fifth.
How about that! Out of nowhere Sergio Garcia with a brilliant bunker shot chips it in for birdie. A brilliant shot sparks wild celebrations in the crowd and on the green.
Gallacher sent his effort wildly into the trees and has been given a free drop but it's blind, over a hazard and uphill. Good luck...
Hmm, would've taken something incredible from there, never mind for a Ryder Cup rookie. He lands just on the edge of the hazard.
I fear I may have jinxed Kaymer. He misses the chance to restore a three shot lead, not anticipating the slow pace of the green. Still 2 up though now through 6.
McIlroy takes a bit of a risk going straight for the pin rather than a safer shot to the green and it does not pay off, rolling away into the hazard and he's going to have to hack away with the next shot.
More problems for Gallacher and Poulter as the former plants his tee shot on the par three sixth straight into the bunker.
Sergio Garcia rescues the situation for Europe on the fifth, halving the hole with a four foot putt. He and McIlroy still 1 up.
Thomas Bjorn so close to moving Europe 3 up against Watson and Simpson. The ball threatens to drop but stays out and it's a halved seventh.
All going quite well for Europe so far this morning. What have you made of it? Hit 'comment' at the top of this blog page and give us your thoughts.
Rose/Stenson and Bjorn/Kaymer are looking fairly solid while Gallacher/Poulter are struggling. The fourth match, as many expected, could be the key one though. Error strewn from all four but Europe cling onto the lead in that one for now.
Another solid putt from Thomas Bjorn to halve the hole and keep the 2 shot lead in match two.
Ouch. Justin Rose is in a spot of bother having been stung by a wasp. Hopefully doesn't affect him too much as he's looked in great form today.
Yep I'd agree with that Josh, although that fourth match is incredibly tough to call. Nobody taking it by the scruff of the neck yet.
No worries about Justin, he's just pinged his 8-iron tee shot nicely onto the green at the start of the 10th.
It certainly seemed odd to partner him with a rookie in Gallacher.
