Team USA will head into the final day of the Ryder Cup with a three-point advantage over Darren Clarke’s men at Hazeltine.

The holders briefly silenced a boisterous crowd by winning the morning foursomes but it wasn’t enough as Jordan Spieth’s team-mates stepped it up a gear in the afternoon to clinch the four-balls 3-1.

Patrick Reed was the central figure in the last tussle of the session as he and Spieth took down England’s Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson of Sweden 2 and 1 while Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar never trailed in match three, recording a 2 and 1 victory over Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer.

Ryder Cup veteran Lee Westwood suffered heartbreak in his match, missing from inside three feet at the last as he and fellow Englishman Danny Willett slid to a one-hole defeat at the hands of JB Holmes and Ryan Moore.
