1549: Righto, many thanks for being with us today, it was magnificent. I'll leave you as the European team rain down souvenirs on their fans from the balcony of the clubhouse... tremendous scenes...

Anon via text, 81111: "Followed the whole day on my desktop glued to the BBC website. Turning point - Cink should have sunk McIlroy. That was a big half."

1532: Monty taking huge gulps of air as he makes his way back to the clubhouse, this is almost too much for Europe's captain. Spare a thought for the Americans amid all this triumphalism - there were some magnificent performances from their team today. But the bottom line is they haven't won in Europe now since 1993.

1528: It's all going off at Celtic Manor - the European players are drowned in a sea of fans, Monty is drowned in a sea of champagne, remarkable scenes. This event started out as a bit of a dog's dinner to be honest, but it's ended up being something of a classic. Here's a good stat for you: Europe won it while losing three of the four sessions, not sure that's happened before.

1523: Mahan has a putt from just off the front from 18 feet - that looks in, looks in, but curls right at the last! Mahan walks towards McDowell and shoots out a hand of concession - Europe have regained the Ryder Cup, winning the match 14½ v 13½.

1520: Monty can't look as McDowell sends his chip on its way... didn't hit it hard enough, perhaps six feet short...
Europe 13½ v 13½ USA

1519: That's pressure of the Ryder Cup messing with you, Hunter - Mahan fluffs his chip from the front of the green at 17 and surely now that's the USA's chances gone...
Europe 13½ v 13½ USA

1515: McDowell finds the front right of the green with his tee shot at 17 and his ball slides off the front but stays out of the jaws of the gaping bunker. Mahan now... and he comes up well short, either hit that heavy or was a couple of clubs short...
Europe 13½ v 13½ USA

European Up
1512: BOOM-BADDA-BING! McDowell's slid in his left-to-righter to snatch the 16th hole and get back to two up with two to play against Hunter Mahan. Just to recap - McDowell has to win this match for Europe to regain the Ryder Cup. So unless the man from Portrush loses this hole, the trophy is Europe's once more.
Europe 13½ v 13½ USA

1509: That's a pretty good effort from Mahan - he's left himself "one of those" for par at 16. McDowell has got a very greasy one downhill for birdie and the hole...

1507: The Americans have taken two massive chunks out of Europe in the last couple of minutes - but hark, what's that roar from yonder? It's McDowell sticking his second into the 16th to within 15 feet of the hole. Everyone OK? I feel nauseous.
Europe 13½ v 13½ USA

1504:Fowler settles, brings his putter back... AND IT GOES! The 21-year-old has birdied the last four holes to halve his match with a devastated looking Edoardo Molinari, that's some effort from the rookie. Zach Johnson's drained a biggun on 16, Harrington's been skewered 3&2.
Europe 13½ v 13½ USA

1501: McDowell marmalises his drive down the middle at 16 while Mahan finds the spinach... Jimenez is already halfway down a tree-trunk thick lah-di-dah, I've never seen the phlegmatic Spaniard look this nervous. Molinari cosies his ball up towards the hole, Fowler has a putt from 20 feet to halve the match...
Europe 13 v 12 USA

1459: Fowler, who has an impeccable Walker Cup record, finds the guts of the green with his third at 18. "Edgy, non-traditional, yet completely low-key and approachable," is how he's described on his own website. Something tells me there will be nothing low-key about him if he pulls this match out of the flames. Nothing Hollywood about that approach from Edoardo, but it's sensible enough, into the middle of the green...
Europe 13 v 12 USA

US up
1455: The American cavalry have arrived on the 17th where Fowler is playing out of the trampled rough. After much deliberation the youngster decides to lay-up and, unlike Molinari, finds the fairway. McDowell makes that par putt but Mahan makes his birdie - McDowell is only one up with three to play. All of a sudden, things beginning to fall off the European bandwagon down the home straight...
Europe 13 v 12 USA

1452: Molinari hasn't got enough brawn to make the green in two at 18 and he's committed a cardinal golfing sin with his second, laying up into the rough. Here's McDowell and he really needs to pop this in... touch of a blacksmith, his ball flying six feet past the pin...
Europe 13 v 12 USA

1450: Mahan flops on in two at 15, he's left himself with a very makeable birdie putt. McDowell's in ankle deep rough to the left of the green... duffed it, his ball still short of the dancefloor...
Europe 13 v 12 USA

1448: Fowler just misses the fairway left at 18 but that doesn't look like too bad a lie. Here's Molinari and this boy's got some seriously cohones, the Italian rattling his drive down the middle. Harrington with an all-too familiar cry of "fore!" off the tee at 16, he's blocked his tee shot right.
Europe 13 v 12 USA

1446: FOWLER BACK FROM THE DEAD! Like a man on a slab springing suddenly erect, he makes his birdie effort disappear and all of a sudden Edoardo's only one up going down the last. Mickelson with his first point of the match, he rolls in a birdie putt at 16 for a 4&2 win over rookie Peter Hanson. Harrington's not dead yet either, Zach Johnson missed his birdie putt at 15 and is three up with three to play.
Europe 13 v 12 USA

1442: Molinari with a 15-footer for birdie at 17 - hole this and Fowler's a dead man... decent effort, but it runs out of steam and trails off left. Harrington drains his putt for three at 15 but Zach Johnson has a putt for the match...
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1440: Zach Johnson with a bender in a bun to win the match on 15 but it stays low and Harrington's alive - for now. Mickelson draws his second into the 16th green, could be all over Red Rover for Hanson.
Europe 13 v 11 USA

US up
1438: Fowler really applied the pressure with that approach at 16 and Edoardo wasn't able to cope, prodding his par putt right - USA back to two down with two to play in that one. Here's Fowler on 17 and the 21-year-old stiffs his tee shot to within 15 feet of the pin. Edoardo with a silky swing and he's all over the flag...

1435: What a shot that is from Fowler, his second out of the rough finishing a few feet from the pin. McDowell makes his saver at 14 and Mahan follows him in, Europe remain two up in that one. Mickelson, the old weirdo, is chipping from on the green at 15 and his ball has got too much juice on it and horseshoes out - Hanson's back to three down with three to play.
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1432: McDowell with a wedge at 14 and that's a beauty, his ball landing 20 foot short and scuttling up to within five or six feet. Mahan, who has one point from two so far, has got the putter out from just off the green. Aggressive effort, and it curls to within five feet of the cup.
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1429: Fowler's yanked his tee shot left on 16 and he's in the cabbage. Edoardo's followed him in, and they could both be laying up from there. Hanson on tee at 15 and he's slathered his ball to within 15 feet of the pin.
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1427: McDowell is 190 yards from the pin on 14, the reigning US Open champion with six iron... it's heavy and 40 yards short, although mercifully not in the drink. There's Monty looking on, but he stops looking when Mahan addresses his ball... bit of wind? Looked like a good conatct, but he too comes up short...
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1424: By the way, there are highlights on BBC Two at 1920-2030 BST, and also online. Pretty decent effort from Fowler, that should be an up-and-down for three... Edoardo does a Bubba and leaves his eagle effort short - the Italian is dormie three...
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1421: What a shot that is from Edoardo at the par-four 15th - he has a rummage around in his quiver, pulls out the big stick and plonks his ball a few feet from the hole. Fowler missed the green front left, and if he loses this hole he loses the match...
Europe 13 v 11 USA

US up
1419: Mickelson with birdie number five at 14 which means Hanson is four down with four to play. McDowell's putt for the hole at 13 comes up short and he stays two up over Mahan with five to play - with Edoardo Molinari three up with four to play and Europe down by miles in two other matches, it's all going to come down to that final clash...

Woods now with a tricky downhiller on 15 and he's raced it in - 4&3 victory for the 14-time major champion and world number one, Francesco Molinari got mullered. But so would most players have been, Woods was nine under for his round...
Europe 13 v 11 USA

1411: That was Jimenez's first ever singles pointby the way, as Fowler misses a makeable putt at 14 - Edoardo remains three up with four to play. Mahan's won the 12th against McDowell, he's now only two down with six to play. Fisher missed a 15-footer to win the 15th and he's missed again coming back - Overton's taken the Englishman out 3&2, it was rather a capitulation down the home straight.
Europe 13 v 10 USA

European Up
1405: Jimenez with a very awkward bunker escape at 15, one foot in, one foot out, but that's a dreamy shot, his ball finishing a few feet beyond the cup. He raises his putter, soaks up the cheers of the crowd, and it's now up to Bubba to keep this match alive. It's a little bit timid, and Jimenez pops in his birdie putt for the match, 4&3.
Europe 13 v 9 USA

1402: Edoardo with an absolute huckleberry of an approach at 14, smashing out of the rough on the left-hand side of the fairway onto the middle of the green. Watson at 15 and that's pretty cute, his ball gathering into the hollow beyond the pin. Fowler with a far shorter approach at 14 and he plonks his ball next to his opponent's.
Europe 12 v 9 USA

The sun is out
1358: Jimenez at the short par-four 15th and he gets some luck, his ball saved from a watery grave by one of the bunkers to the left. Bubba's tugged his left as well, but he's dry too... Zach Johnson misses a slippery putt at 12, but he remains four up. Crackerjack day in south Wales, long shadows and everything...
Europe 12 v 9 USA

European Up
1354: Fisher, having dropped, is still alive as Overton's second is a little heavy-handed and finishes eight feet past the hole. Mahan misses his birdie putt back at 11 meaning McDowell has a makeable putt to get back to three up. Overton misses and that's a stomach-settling half for Ross Fisher... McDowell's in for birdie at 11, Europe three up in that one...
Europe 12 v 9 USA

US up
1351: So Europe are up in three of the matches still in play, with Jimenez three up over Watson through 13 and Edoardo three up against Fowler through 13 - the American's just pulled a shot back. McDowell, playing in the last match against Mahan, is two up and the way thing's are looking that match could be crucial - it's looking like Europe might need a half or better from him to flop over the line. Here's Mahan for eagle at 11 - decent enough, but McDowell is closer...
Europe 12 v 9 USA

US up
1347: Zach Johnson is giving Harrington the runaround, the former Masters champion has just gone four up after 11. The wheels have come off Ross Fisher, he's yanked his tee shot left at 15 and found the drink. Overton's up there towards the green, Fisher could be on his way down.
Europe 12 v 9 USA

US up
1345: Four birdies and an eagle between nine and 13 for Woods, he's just nailed a 50-footer at 13 to go four up against Francesco - he's eight under for the last 10 holes. Jimenez all over the pin with his second at 14 and Bubba follows him on.
Europe 12 v 9 USA

European Up
US up
1341: Fisher leaves himself four feet for a four at 14 meaning Overton has a 20-footer for the hole and to go two up... it dies on him, but Fisher's is a testy one... gives it too much, his ball dipping left and lipping out and that's three successive bogeys. Edoardo's four up though, through 12...
Europe 12 v 9 USA

1336: Edoardo with a five iron to within six feet at 12 as Hanson goes three down against Mickelson after 11. Woods with a pretty ordinary tee shot at the par-three 13th and Francesco is unable to get inside him. Rickie Fowler's in the sand at 12 and he leaves his ball in, Edoardo about to go four up...
Europe 12 v 9 USA

European Up
1332: Furyk's bunker escape is pretty ordinary and Donald has two blows for the match... he cosies the ball up to the hole and Furyk doesn't ask him to putt out, that's a one up victory and Europe now have a three-point lead...
Europe 12 v 9 USA

1330: Donald, one up with one to play, and he's safely on in three. Furyk, Furyk, Furyk - he's missed the green with a wedge, his ball trickling left into the sand...

1327: "This is the best event in golf by far," says McIlroy, looking as if he needs a lie-down and a glass of milk. Overton has gone one up on Fisher after 13, the Englishman was two up at one stage. WOODS WITH EAGLE FROM THE FAIRWAY ON 12! He's gone birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle, Francesco Molinari doesn't know what's hit him. Edoardo's gone three up on Rickie Fowler after 11, he's seriously wound up for this...
Europe 11 v 9 USA

1322: McIlroy's in! Cink should have buried him down the stretch but the 21-year-old Northern Irishman kept on swinging, even when the fat lady was singing...
Europe 11 v 9 USA


1321: McIlroy splashes out at the second attempt meaning Cink has a slippery putt for the match from 12 feet... grazes the hole left, meaning Rory's got a very nasty five-footer to halve the match... I feel a little bit sick just looking at it...
Europe 10½ v 8½ USA

1319: Five birdies in seven holes for Tiger, Francesco hasn't really done much wrong. McIlroy reached the edge of the green in two on 18 - cometh the hour, cometh the wee man. Cink's plopped on in three, here's Rory from the trap... and he's muffed it, trying to be too cute, his ball curling back into the sand...
Europe 10½ v 8½ USA

US up
1315: Harrington's prods his birdie effort left at nine and Zach has a putt to go three up, which he makes. Donald and Furyk halve the 17th and Donald stays one up with one to play - Donald had an eight or nine-footer for the match but he left it high. Mahan's nicked a hole back against McDowell at eight, he's now two down; Tiger's nicked a hole against Francesco to go two up after 11.

US up
European Up
1312: Furyk with a 25-footerto win the 16th and he's drained it - the former US Open champion is now only one down with two to play. Edoardo's gone two up on Fowler after 10 courtesy of an eight-footer. The tub-thumping Overton is all square with Ross Fisher after 12 as Zach is all over the pin with his second at, I believe, the ninth - he's two up against Harrington. Harrington very nearly holes his third, his ball yo-yoing back past the cup and six feet by. Dandy of an approach from Donald at 17...

European Up
1308: Poulter was six under through 14, he absolutely loves this event and is fast becoming a present-day Colin Montgomerie, something of a talisman for the European team. Jimenez, the cigar-chomping grandaddy of the European team, is three up through 11 against the big-hitting Bubba Watson.

US up
European Up
1302: Mickelson's won the ninth to go three up against Hanson as McIlroy cosies his ball up towards the hole at 17 - Cink's got a five-footer for the hole... another let-off, leaves it high, they go down the 18th all square. Poulter's wrapped things up at 14 for a 5&4 victory over Matt Kuchar - he said he'd deliver a point and he has done, the overall gap two points again...

1259: Cink now at the par-three 17th... huge slice of luck, his ball flirting with the bunker to the left of the green before rolling down the bank towards the hole. Woods had sneaked ahead against Francesco, that's a real old arm-wrestle he's having with the 27-year-old Italian. Donald now at 16, his second from the first cut... rescue club, and he's tugged it left into the sand front left. Poulter at 14 after rival Kuchar finds the sand... he's stiffed his second to within six feet - he could wrap it up here for Europe's first point of the day.

Fowler with a peach of an approach at nine, he's one down against Edoardo. Tremendous half for Donald at 15 - miraculous water escape and a fine saver from 15 feet. McIlroy halves the 15th after a very ordinary first putt before Edoardo makes his saver at nine to stay one up on Fowler... Poulter's pumped up to the max, whatever that piece of yoof speak means, he's gone four up after 13 after making a 20-footer disappear...

US up
1249: In fact, it's Westwood to play again, must make this to apply pressure on the world number four... that's a marvellous clutch putt from eight feet. Donald's come over all Van de Velde at 15 - right trouser leg rolled up, one foot in the drink, but what a recovery that is, his ball ending up 15 feet from the pin. Stricker now with two putts for the match - his first is a little high but Westwood doesn't ask him to putt out, that's a splendid 2&1 victory and a point on the board for his team...

1245: Europe up in seven now, although a few of the matches are pretty tight. Woods now to make it all square at nine... makes it from 12 feet, he's up against Francesco, both out in 33. Westwood flops on in two at 17, but Stricker has a putt for the match...

Furyk at 13 and that was nervy - pokes it left and Donald's back to three up. The Englishman's been a runaway locomotive all this match, Furyk just the latest player to be squashed on his windscreen. Harrington back to all square after five...

By Jonathan Stevenson

1220: Luke Donald misses his six-footer to win the 13th, so he's still two-up on Jim Furyk. I'm going to hand you over to the only man fit to bring the Ryder Cup home to Europe - Mr Ben Dirs. Have a wonderful afternoon.

European Up
1218: Rory McIlroy finds the middle of the 14th green with his iron approach from the middle of the fairway, holes running out for the top two boys. Meanwhile, Peter Hanson rolls in a super putt at the sixth and he's won two holes in a row to pull it back to two-down against Phil Mickelson.

European Up
1215: That's a bogey four for Matt Kuchar at the short par-three 10th and Ian Poulter knocks in from four feet to go three-up. He's quite pleased, you won't be surprised to learn. Meanwhile on eight, Miguel Angel Jimenez chips in from the fringes of the green, it's a crackerjack, and Bubba Watson can't live with that - the Spaniard is now one-up. Luke Donald nails his tee shot at the 13th, he's having a blinder the Englishman.

1212: In the last 20 minutes, Europe have gone from leading in seven matches and USA leading in four, to both teams being ahead in five of the singles matches apiece.

1210: Steve Stricker misses his 10-foot birdie putt at the 14th and Lee Westwood halves the hole with a five-footer, he stays one-down. Luke Donald gets them roaring with a super 20-footer at the 12th and that's enough to halve the hole, he remains two-up.

1206: Martin Kaymer slides an eight-footer down the right and he's lost the 10th to Dustin Johnson, he's now two-down. Ross Fisher misses a 20-foot putt at the eighth and Jeff Overton cuts his lead to one-up. Rory McIlroy concedes at the 13th, so he's now one-down to Stewart Cink once again.

1201: I know Lee Westwood's supposed to lead by example, but that's just silly. Rory McIlroy follows him into the water at 13 and with Stewart Cink in the middle of the green, that's not going to be all-square for much longer. At the eighth, Jeff Overton plays a magical approach to within two feet, stone dead, looks like pulling one back on Ross Fisher there. Tiger Woods wins the sixth with a 20-footer and he's only one-down now.

1159: Rickie Fowler wins the fifth hole and he's back to all-square against Edoardo Molinari. Steve Stricker takes advantage of a real wobble from Lee Westwood to go one-up on the Englishman after 13 holes, while at 12 Rory McIlroy gets back to all-square with Stewart Cink.

US up
1156: Luke Donald holes a birdie putt from more than 20 feet at the 11th and that's a crucial one because Jim Furyk was in prime position to pull one back. Furyk makes no mistake on his putt from a shorter range and Donald remains two-up. Miguel Angel Jimenez misses a shortish putt at the sixth and he's back to all-square with Bubba Watson.

1152: Martin Kaymer rolls home from six feet at the ninth and he's now only one-down against Dustin Johnson. Peter Hanson can't buy a putt, though - he's gone four-down after four to Phil Mickelson, who hasn't won at this year's Ryder Cup yet.

From SethsAngry on 606: "This is going to come down to the Molinari brothers. Oh dear - not confident. We need Rory to turn his match around and Miguel to beat Bubba Watson."

1146: Rory McIlroy knocks in a super confident putt from 12 feet for a birdie at the 11th after his approach hit the flag and rolled back. Lee Westwood concedes the 12th hole and Steve Stricker is back to all-square in the top match of the day. At nine, Martin Kaymer plays a beauty of an approach to five feet, that's birdie chance o'clock. At the third, Padraig Harrington wins it with a birdie, he's back to one down against Zach Johnson, who won the first two. Francesco Molinari is putting like a genius now and he's two-up again on Tiger Woods.

1142: Miguel Angel Jimenez takes full advantage of Bubba Watson getting in the muck at five to go back one-up on the American. At the 12th, Steve Stricker plays a sensational second shot stone dead to within two feet of the flag, that's wonderful golf. Lee Westwood finds the fringes of the green and that might be back to all-square shortly. Luke Donald misses from four feet at the 10th and he's only two-up against Jim Furyk now.

1138: As it stands, Europe are up in seven, the United States are up in four and we are all-square in one. Remember, Europe need five points from the 12 singles to regain the Ryder Cup, US need 7½ points to retain it.

1134: That's an impressive start - Phil Mickelson rolls in another decent putt and he's won the first three holes against poor Peter Hanson. On the first green, Graeme McDowell finds the middle of the hole from seven feet and he's already one-up on Hunter Mahan.

1132: Jim Furyk's third to this ninth is a cracker, he's only about six feet away and in with a great chance of a birdie - but look what Luke Donald's done, he's only gone and pitched inside Furyk. That's cheeky, is that. It's also brilliant. They halve the hole. At 11, Steve Stricker pitches stone dead from the edge of the green, that's a gimme. Lee Westwood's 50-odd foot putt for an eagle cups in and out of the hole, it's a screamer of an effort, they halve in birdies. World-class golf. At five, Bubba Watson's backspin takes him into the wet stuff. Seen plenty of that so far today.

1127: Jeff Overton, oh man. The American misses a tiddler of a putt at five and after Ross Fisher had found the drink, Overton lips out. What an escape that is for Fisher, who stays two-up.

1125: So, Padraig Harrington loses the first hole to Zach Johnson, and Graeme McDowell and Hunter Mahan are under way in the last match out on the Celtic Manor course. At the fourth, Tiger Woods pulls one back on Francesco Molinari with a lovely 15-foot putt at the back edge of the green. He's only one-down now. There are 12 matches taking place. Hunter Mayhem, more like.

European Up
1122: Rickie Fowler won the second hole against Edoardo Molinari, but the Italian knocks in a decent putt at the third to go back to one-up. At the 10th, Rory McIlroy and Stewart Cink both find the green but leave themselves lengthy birdie putts. Ian Poulter and Matt Kuchar both miss birdie putts at the sixth, Poults stays two-up.

1118: Rory McIlroy slips a 12-footer down the right on nine and at the turn he is one-down against Stewart Cink. Lee Westwood rolls in a nervy four-footer at the 10th to stay one-up on Steve Stricker. There's pressure on those boys at the top, make no mistake about that.

1115: Tiger Woods misses a 20-foot birdie putt on the third and he remains two-down to Francesco Molinari. Steve Stricker and Lee Westwood both find the middle of the green at the par-three 10th. Rory McIlroy hits his iron to within 20 feet at nine and Jim Furyk misses a putt to win the eighth against Luke Donald, who is still three-up. On three, Edoardo Molinari is within 12 feet, decent birdie chance that.

1110: Great start at the first for Phil Mickelson, launching a putt in from more than 30 feet to go one-up on Peter Hanson. Matt Kuchar finds water at the fifth and Ian Poulter goes two-up on the American.

1107: It's all happening at Celtic Manor - Padraig Harrington and Zach Johnson are set to tee off and that means we've got 11 matches going on. Steve Stricker makes his birdie putt at the ninth and Lee Westwood follows him in, the Englishman still one-up.

From bencwalmsley on Twitter: "Conference call in one ear, 5 live in the other. Shouted "yes" at a grim financial prediction. Thanks Luke."

1102: Francesco Molinari is on fire. The Italian has found his putting range and knocks in another from eight feet to go two-up on Tiger Woods after two holes. That's the way to start. Lovely iron approach from Lee Westwood at the ninth, decent chance for a birdie there and Steve Stricker's about a foot further back.

1057: Rory McIlroy slips a 20-foot putt past at the eighth and Stewart Cink, who hit a magnificent iron approach to four feet makes no mistake. In a match of rare quality Cink goes one-up again on the Northern Irishman. Fransesco Molinari is spot on with his approach at the second, while brother Edoardo wins the first hole against Rickie Fowler to go one-up.

Meanwhile on six, Jim Furyk misses from 15 feet and Luke Donald nails his from 10 feet to go three-up. Stunning stuff from the Englishman. Talking of which... Ross Fisher, slap bang in the middle of the hole from 20 feet and he's two-up after three on Jeff Overton. Giddy times.

HANG ON - IAN POULTER SENDS IN A SCREAMER FROM 35-ODD FEET TO GO ONE-UP ON MATT KUCHAR AFTER THREE!! Stewart Cink's birdie putt at seven is a touch short, but Rory can't make him pay. Still all-square. Francesco Molinari nails his putt at one and he's one-up on the world number one Tiger Woods.

1042: You little beauty. Francesco Molinari's iron approach to the first green is a scorcher, it's rolling to within five feet. Can Tiger match him?

1032: Dustin Johnson, disappointing for the US so far, misses a 12-foot putt on the right, but Martin Kaymer goes wide left by a mile from closer in and Johnson goes two-up. By the way, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Bubba Watson are under way. Rory McIlroy's approach to the sixth gives him a birdie chance - he's one-down against Stewart Cink, remember.

1029: Steve Stricker misses his birdie putt at six and Lee Westwood, from a bit closer in, slips his by down the left - remarkable that neither of them made it.

Twitter
From SpringerSam on Twitter: "Not sure about the order Monty's sent out... I've a feeling G-Mc will be the one to save the day."

European Up
1025: Lee Westwood's second at the par-four sixth is magnificent, his four iron landing within four or five feet from the flag. Steve Stricker follows him in superbly, but his bounce isn't quite as kind and he's about 10 feet away. A pumped Ross Fisher executes his birdie putt to perfection on one and he's one-up on Jeff Overton.

US up
1022: It's relentlessly brilliant already this morning at Celtic Manor. Rory McIlroy and Stewart Cink are already involved in a humdinger and McIlroy finds the hazard at the fifth, Cink going one-up on the youngster. Ross Fisher, meanwhile, hits a stunning approach to the first and he's got an immediate birdie chance, a few feet inside Jeff Overton's effort.

European Up
1018: Lee Westwood, you hero. He rolls his eight-foot putt home at the fifth and the world number two goes one-up on Steve Stricker in the opening singles match. By the way, Westwood will end Tiger Woods' five-year reign at the top if he finishes first or second at the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland next weekend. Ian Poulter and Matt Kuchar halve the first. Ross Fisher and Jeff Overton are behind them.

European Up
1015: Jim Furyk was in the water at the third, but he manages to make a four. Luke Donald slots in from six feet to go one-up on the American. Lee Westwood's second at the fifth leaves him with another eight-footer for birdie, super stuff.

US up
1011: What a magnificent fightback already from Stewart Cink - two-down after two to Rory McIlroy, he's only gone and knocked in his birdie putt on four and Cink has hauled it back to all-square. Stunning start. Jim Furyk finds water at the third.

Martin Kaymer needs to hole his second bunker shot to share the first with Dustin Johnson, but despite a great effort it's a foot away and Johnson goes one-up. At the fourth, Stewart Cink's approach gives him a shot at getting all-square with Rory McIlroy.

1002: Ian Poulter, the man who promised a point for Europe this morning, batters his opening drive down the middle and he's longer and straighter than Matt Kuchar. To say he looks pumped would be a ludicrous understatement.

European Up
1001: Lee Westwood gets straight back on the bike, rolling in his eight-footer at four and Westwood has gone all-square with Steve Stricker. Martin Kaymer bunkers his bunker shot and the German is having a shocker at the first. Not incidentally, the schedulers are busy coming up with a plan for this evening so you can watch highlights of today's action on BBC Two. We don't have a time yet, but will let you know as soon as possible.

0958: Stewart Cink downs his putt on the third and Cink has pulled it back to one down on Rory McIlroy. Lee Westwood's approach at four gives him a first proper look at a birdie chance - he won't want to be trailing Steve Stricker for long. Martin Kaymer goes way right with his second to the first, there's some thick stuff down there.

From Anon, via text: "I am halfway up Mynydd Maen looking back towards Chepstow and Newport. Clear sunny skies everywhere except the mist shrouded 'dip' where Celtic Manor is. Don't worry, players and fans - looks like it should lift in about 30 mins."

0953: Rory McIlroy fires his tee shot at the third to about 15 feet, but Stewart Cink comes up with a stunning riposte, he's only about six feet away the American. McIlroy's birdie putt slips right, chance here for Cink to pull one back...

0950: Martin Kaymer and Dustin Johnson get their singles match under way and next up it's Ian Poulter v Matt Kuchar, in a couple of minutes. We're into the thick of it right now - remember, Europe lead the United States 9½-6½, so Europe need 5 points to regain the Ryder Cup and US need 7½ points to retain it.

0948: Steve Stricker rolls his birdie putt to within a foot and Lee Westwood concedes, so Stricker goes one-up after three. Meanwhile on the second green, Rory McIlroy knocks in a short putt to win the hole and go two-up on Stewart Cink.

0945: Correction - that wasn't Jim Furyk's second, it was his third, and he rolls in his par putt to halve the opener with Luke Donald.

0943: Lee Westwood's six-iron approach to the short par-three third just rolls off the edge of the green, unlucky that from the new world number two. His second is a disaster, duffing it and watching it roll back to his feet. On two, Rory McIlroy finds the green with his third, while Stewart Cink misses left. On one, Jim Furyk hits his approach to within seven feet, glorious stuff.

Get involved on 606
From Mystiroakey on 606: "I reckon Westy giving him that putt on the first may well be why Stricker missed on the second. Textbook stuff and now Stricker will be feeling a bit less confident when faced with those short putts."

0935: Luke Donald has drilled his drive at the first smack down the middle of the fairway, you can't start any better than that. At the second, Lee Westwood makes par five and Steve Stricker has a birdie putt to lead... and he misses on the right. All-square, half in four.

European Up
0931: Following on from Steve Stricker on the first, that's a fabulous chip from Stewart Cink to within a couple of feet and it's conceded. Rory McIlroy now has a 10-foot putt to win the hole... and HE'S ONLY GONE AND NAILED IT!! McIlroy one-up on Cink.

0929: By the way, one of our men at Celtic Manor, Rob Hodgetts, has written a blog which beautifully sets up the day's golf. "Europe need five points to win, and how fitting it would be that the inspiring Ian Poulter could be the man to sink the winning putt in his first event on home soil," says Hodgetts, sending a shiver down my spine in the process. He's also written a blog about Luke Donald, Jonny Wilkinson and a rugby union performance coach. Top stuff.

The rough
0926: Stewart Cink finds a lovely bit of grass inbetween two bunkers at the first, there's a stroke of luck. Our kid Rory goes to within 10 feet and that's advantage Europe. Next up, Luke Donald and Jim Furyk.

Twitter
From SchultzMS on Twitter: "Monitoring multiple blogs & listening to Ryder Cup Radio, AND trying to work here in Germany - Go Yanks! Big challenge today!"

0920: Westy knocks his par putt in and then sportingly picks up Stricker's ball as they share the opening hole. Back at the tee, Ivor Robson does his stuff and then Stewart Cink finds the right-hand side of the fairway, with Rory McIlroy just left of the American. The mist means no-one at the tee can see where the balls have gone, but the fans yelp and holler anyway.

0916: And now it's Rory McIlroy's turn to take the acclaim of the crowd and get involved in the action at the first tee. He's off with Stewart Cink at 0917. Meanwhile further along the course, Steve Stricker plays a quite sumptuous bunker shot from 30 feet to within a few and Westwood rolls his putt to a few inches past Stricker's mark.

European Up
0913: Lee Westwood finds the front of the green with his approach, he's left himself with a lengthy birdie chance on the first. Steve Stricker is in the bunker, the hand came straight off and he didn't like it from the start. I've been desperate to use a 'Europe up' graphic all morning.

Europe's Ian Poulter: "This is the formula that we felt would be our strongest. We knew they would frontload. I'm playing well and I live for the Ryder Cup, I will deliver a point. I will deliver a point. I can see us winning this series today. I hope some people will have taken sickies today, so sorry businesses."

0906: "On tee representing Europe, Lee Westwood!" It's goosebumps time again. Westwood batters his drive right of Stricker's and he's just crept into some light rough. Decent position still, though.

0905: "On tee representing United States, Steve Stricker!" The world number four kicks us off in the singles by nailing a drive down the middle of the fairway.

0904: Polite applause for Steve Stricker, good to hear. We don't want any booing today, no point is there? There's some low-lying mist at Celtic Manor, but it won't stop us from getting under way. Captain Monty is all smiles.

0902: Good Lord, the grandstands around the first tee are heaving, and the chant goes up for "There's only one Ballesteros", harking back to one of Europe's great Ryder Cuppers. Lee Westwood, in beaming bright blue jacket, gets a stunning ovation as he enters the fray. What moments these are.

0900: Big, big news: Your 606 page is now open for the day's play. You can also nervously leave your thoughts on text to 81111 (UK) and +44 7786200666 (worldwide) and on Twitter @Stevo_football. I know, it says football. Comprehensively ignore it.

From Matt W - depressed Reds fan, happy golf fan, via text: "If Monty pulls this one off, can he please retire from golf and become the new Liverpool manager?"

0855: World number two Lee Westwood and world number four Steve Stricker are 10 Welsh minutes away from getting started at Celtic Manor. "There's a great day ahead," says Colin Montgomerie on BBC Radio 5 live.

Lee Westwood's mum, Trish on BBC Radio 5 live: "Yeah, very proud of him, he's really done his best this week and he thrives on competition. It gets me very emotional, sorry! He's number two in the world now, and he's wanted to be number one all his life, it's what he works so hard for. I'll be following him all the way around today and all the families will be crying on each other's shoulders!"

Twitter
0849: As Lee Westwood get buggied around Celtic Manor, my friend and yours that_twisted_cm on Twitter has pointed us all in the direction of the all-time Ryder Cup records page. Useful.

Lee Westwood on Steve Stricker: "Steve's had a good year, he's four in the world, so I've got to play my best, try and go out and get in front quick. There's as much pressure as you make it in your own mind. I want to get off to a good start."

0844: On the telly they keep showing highlights of the last three days, I don't know whether it's making me feel even more nervous. Just think - one of these 24 players might be about to hold the winning putt in the Ryder Cup. There can't be many better feelings on earth, surely?

BBC Radio 5 Live
0840: On BBC Radio 5 live, Nicky Campbell gets the massed ranks of fans to sing "There's only one Lee Westwood," and my word they belt that tune out like they mean it. Europe's 13th man are in fabulous voice already at Celtic Manor.

Europe captain Colin Montgomerie: "We have to remain confident, stay upbeat and keep the momentum that we got on Saturday evening and kept on Sunday. Our aim is to win the singles series and everything else will look after itself. I think the draw's come out well, but who knows. I've always said this Ryder Cup is won with 12 players and I'm delighted everyone's got on the board so far."

From that_twisted_cm on Twitter: "Five out of 12 still a tough ask; Europe needs to come out firing; can't let USA settle. Backing Kaymer + Molinaris to shine."

0830: Ryder Cup singles pairings:
0905: Westwood v Stricker
0917: McIlroy v Cink
0929: Donald v Furyk

0828: Wanna know the order of play, then...? (And for those of you who read the football live text occasionally, no, I'm not doing Stevo's predos. This is way too important)

From Paul, London, via text: "My prediction: Luke Donald to exact revenge on Jim Furyk for making off with his $10m, Europe 15-13."

From K, Michigan, USA, via text: "Wondering if it is just me or not, but it always seems that the US play better in the singles matches compared to the team portion?"

0820: How remiss of me. The weather in south Wales is set fair, you'll be absolutely delighted to know. It's pretty clear, and the early mist has disappeared. That first tee looks glorious. About 45 minutes until we get going.

0816: The weather's dire and London is being ravaged once more by a tube strike, but as long as we've got the golf to keep us company, we'll survive. I want your chat and I want it now: for the moment, on text to 81111 (UK) and +44 7786200666 (worldwide) and on Twitter @Stevo_football. A 606 page has been set up, but you won't be able to leave your comment until 0900 BST. Apologies for that.

0813: The situation is thus: after one of the most wonderful days for European golf, Colin Montgomerie's European boys need five more points from the 12 singles matches to regain the Ryder Cup. The United States, shell-shocked by Sunday's one-sided affair, need 7½ points to retain the trophy.

BBC Sport golf correspondent Iain Carter: "When Europe were trailing early on Monty had a furrowed brow - when he's stressed, you can always hear it in his voice. But things turned around dramatically for Europe yesterday, they are in control now and he seemed a lot more relaxed last night."

0805: The warmest of all welcomes, in fact, to an unprecedented fourth day of the Ryder Cup, set to take place at the magnificent Celtic Manor resort in south Wales. After three days of jostling for position, this is the day where the competition will be won and lost.

0800 BST: What do we need for today? I reckon this:
Passion: check
Emotion: check
Desire: check
World-class skills: check
The biggest prize in golf: check
I think we might be ready to start, then. Welcome to one of the greatest bonus days in the recent history of sport.
