Tiger Woods rectified his morning struggles with seven birdies, including five on the back-nine during afternoon four-balls.

It didn’t matter.

Ryder Cup rookie Nicolas Colsaerts authored a round for the ages, carding eight birdies and an eagle to carry the Europeans to their only afternoon point on a match that went down to Woods’ final, 14-foot putt on No. 18. Only when Woods missed could Colsaerts celebrate.

“It was incredible,” Westwood said. cheap air max shoes“I had the best seat in the house. I don’t know who wound him up, but I have to find him for (Saturday). It was one of those amazing days. He’ll look back on that and smile.”

The U.S. trailed the entire back nine, but Woods stroked his tee shot on the par-3 17th to within 4 feet. That’s when Colsaerts rolled in yet another bomb, a 20-footer for birdie. Woods answered to extend the match for one final, futile hole.
