Well that brings an end to an exhilarating day of play on day two at the Ryder Cup. United States are five points from victory with Europe on the brink. Join us tomorrow for live coverage of the singles competition from 11am/5pm on Sunday. But until then, goodbye.

00:16

America take the point as Reed cosies up to the hole. United States claim a 3-1 victory in the fourballs and that will surely prove fatal in Europe's attempts to retain the Ryder Cup.

00:13

The final group are going down 17 and Reed is in the box seat again, within seven feet. Rose and Stenson in the vicinity too but it is advantage USA. A halve will do to claim the point. Rose misses to the right, leaving Stenson with a do or die putt. The Swede shaves the left edge and the US have two putts to win the match.

00:04

Match four not over yet. Henrik Stenson chips in off the green to give Europe hope. Reed still has an eagle putt to claim the halve and the point in this match but he's short and the US' lead is down to two.

00:00

Westwood misses! United States claim the point. What a moment in this match.

23:59

All eyes on Lee Westwood now at the 18th. The US have two shots for birdie from off the green to win the match. Moore is nowhere with his shot, fully 15 feet short. Now Holmes has left it short too. Willett misses his birdie attempt and it's all on Westwood. Three feet to secure a crucial, crucial halve.

23:54

Garcia makes the birdie at the 17th. Mickelson can win the match however with a putt from around six feet and it will put the USA back ahead. He takes a big intake of breath and makes the putt. USA claim the point.

23:52

Danny Willett keeps Europe alive in match two and Lee Westwood completes the trick, leaving it stone dead at 18. That is a surefire birdie and the US must respond.

23:46

Reed makes another putt in what has been a stunning round and the US have a guaranteed halve in the bottom match. They lead by three with three holes left.

23:44

Stenson's putt goes by at the 15th and Reed will have a putt to secure a three hole lead and at least a halve.

23:44

Sergio Garcia goes to within three feet at the 17th! Amazing shot just when Europe needed it. Two down with two to play but that is a near-gimmie.

23:42

Willett misses his par putt and now Westwood must drag Europe out of a hole. He must make his three or Europe will be one down going down the 18th. He misses and USA are now up in three matches.

23:39

Ryan Moore comes up short with his birdie chance at the 17th. Willett is off the green but has a shot to secure at least a half and put Europe ahead. It's horribly short and now they have a putt to save their half. Reckless stuff from the holders.

23:37

Now these eagle putts for Europe. Sergio Garcia comes up a foot short and that is a birdie. Kaymer will have his eagle chance now, knowing he can take this to the 17th if he makes it. The German kept the match alive on the last hole put is a bad miss but Kuchar can't take advantage and Europe reduce the lead to two.

23:35

Phil Mickelson makes a mess of his bunker shot on 16 and Europe looking good to get another shot back here. Kuchar is now on the green after laying up. Jordan Spieth meanwhile has gone into someone's back garden from the tee at 15.

23:30

Both European players have putts for eagle and to go two behind Mickelson and Kuchar at the 16th.

J.B Holmes finds the water at 17, piling the pressure on Ryan Moore.

23:28

Justin Rose putts first for birdie at the 14th, but he misses short. Westwood also misses from three feet on the 16th. Danny Willett's eagle putt is now a two-putt for birdie, with thoughts of winning the hole totally gone. The green jacket winner comes up three feet short and that really wasn't what was required, but he makes the second.

Stenson misses his birdie putt for Europe back on 14 and it gives Reed a chance to put the US two-up, and it's there. That was a gift from the Europeans.

23:24

Spieth chips from the bunker but there is still six feet to make up there. Holmes produces a fine chip to go inside Westwood, but Willett has a put to win the hole on that 16th.

23:22

Lee Westwood chips brilliantly from the bunker to within three feet. Europe have won par, but can Holmes repeat the feat from the same position?

23:21

Sublime from Justin Rose, who goes to within 20 feet on the green. Can Stenson lay the platform for a birdie? He swings with reckless abandone but he's inside 12 feet and there are two birdie chances there.

23:19

Ryan Moore meanwhile hits to the front of the water and narrowly evades going in the lake. Advantage to Europe there.

Back on the 14th in match four, Spieth is in the sand.

23:18

Willett goes safe at the 16th. Now Westwood from the middle of the fairway but he finds the bunker on the same side. The Masters champion in a good spot there. I've written this maybe a hundred times in the afternoon session, but this is a massive match in the context of the whole week. J.B. Holmes in the first cut of rough and he finds the bunker alongside Westwood.

23:15

Kaymer and Garcia have putts to save the hole, though USA will be dormie three at worst. The Spaniard goes first from the edge of the green and it shaves the right of the hole. Kaymer next and it is about time he made a valuable contribution. He has an eight footer and he makes it. Europe still alive in this match, but the half if secure for the home side.

23:13

Mickelson putting for the win at the 15th. A birdie will all but win the match and put the USA ahead again and Hazeltine goes made and he makes another putt.
