Clarke still believes in Europe


Darren Clarke says Europe can still retain the Ryder Cup despite a "disappointing" fourballs on Saturday.

The United States lead Europe 9½-6½ going into into the final day of the Ryder Cup, after Davis Love III’s side won Saturday's fourballs 3-1.

Rory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters took the first point of the fourballs, but wins for Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, and Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar, restored the USA's advantage.

Lee Westwood then missed a three-point putt on the 18th to throw away the chance of a half in he and Danny Willett's match against JB Holmes and Ryan Moore.

"We’re going to have to work hard now tomorrow," Europe Clarke said.

"It’s been done before from a worse position but we have a big task ahead of us. These guys are capable of doing it.

"Obviously, we are disappointed with this afternoon’s result. We hung in there this morning and got back close again and then we had a few chances today to get something but the American guys played very well."

Europe need 7½ points from the 12 singles matches on Sunday to retain the trophy they have held since 2010, while the USA need five points to secure only their third Ryder Cup in 23 years.

"We have to believe in ourselves and go out and play," Clarke continued.

"With the team that’s here this week, I don’t need to pick them up. They will know and understand they have a big challenge ahead of them but I’m sure they will be up for it. I won’t have to do too much to lift them up."
