Bradley Fighting Vehicle Rolls On at Medinah

HOW DO YOU SIT THESE GUYS down? The dynamic duo of Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley won their third consecutive match this morning in foursomes to stretch the U.S. lead at the 39th Ryder Cup, albeit momentarily, to 6-3.

There is apparently no slowing down Phil and Keegan. They recorded seven birdies in 12 holes in the alternate-shot format to dispatch Lee Westwood and Luke Donald 7 and 6.

“I’m just thrilled to get to share this with Phil,” Bradley told NBC’s Roger Maltbie. “It’s brought our best golf out,” said Lefty about the partnership and atmosphere.

Will U.S. Captain Davis Love send out his strongest pair this afternoon, or will he rest them?

Love said his philosophy is to not allow any team member to play every match. (For example, Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker sat out this morning.) But I’m thinking the captain might make an exception in this case. At the least, maybe he puts Bradley out with someone else and lets Phil rest up for tomorrow’s singles.
