Bradley-Mickelson off to another fast start

SHARE Bradley-Mickelson off to another fast start

MEDINAH, Ill. — Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson are picking up right where they left off.

The Americans won their first two holes at the Ryder Cup on Saturday without having to make a putt. They had a chance to go 3 up on Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, but Bradley missed an 8-footer by inches.

Bradley, a Ryder Cup rookie, was the star of Friday's show, teaming with his good buddy Mickelson to take down Europe's two best teams. They were rolling from the start Saturday. Mickelson put his second shot on No. 1 within 2 feet of the pin, and the Europeans conceded. They gave the Americans the hole on No. 2 after Westwood put his tee shot in the water and missed the bogey putt.

The U.S. leads Europe 5-3.
