One down on the third hole, Paula Creamer made a lengthy birdie putt to give the Americans a chance to pull all square in the third morning foursomes match.
Creamer, who is partnered with rookie Austin Ernst, released a fist pump and “C’mon!”
Unfazed, Anna Nordqvist rolled in a similar length birdie putt right after Creamer to halve the hole and keep her and Georgia Hall 1 up.
Two holes later, with the Euros eyeing eagle at the par-5 fifth, Creamer made another long birdie putt. Europe was unable to make a 3 and its lead remained, 1 up.
