Poulter, who teamed with Justin Rose on Friday, also beat Woods and Stricker on Day 1, 2 and 1, and quieted the U.S. tandem of Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson, 1 up, in Saturday’s morning session. The Englishman improves his foursomes record to 4-1-0.
Davis Love III’s picks are a combined 3-4-0, with Stricker getting blanked (0-2) through three sessions and Brandt Snedeker and Jim Fruyk teaming to play the European uber-pairing of Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell to a 1-1 draw. Dustin Johnson won his only start this week in Friday fourball play, teaming with Matt Kuchar to clip Rose and Martin Kaymer, 3 and 2.
Of course, the ultimate judge of any captain is whether he wins, and Love’s side is cruising with an 8-4 lead.
