Garcia and McIlroy are back to all square after inevitably losing the seventh, but Stenson holes out to keep Europe ahead in his match.
Justin Rose overly aggressive with a putt for the win, and now he's left Henrik Stenson with work to do for the halve.
Mickelson lips out again! Two holes in a row that's happened, and he's 3-down to McDowell/Dubuisson. Through five holes!
McIlroy thins a shot from the rough through the back at the seventh, after Jimmy Walker lands the USA in good position on the green. That one-hole advantage isn't going to last long by the looks of things.
Zach Johnson shakes his head after leaving an eagle putt at the same hole. It should be a halve in four.
Justin Rose nudges a fringe putt for eagle up to the holeside and that should be good for birdie for Europe there.
Westwood drains a putt at the 11th after Furyk leaves his short. Europe are 2-up in that match now, and it's a very blue scoreboard right now.
Sergio Garcia has over-corrected himself. Having hooked a tee shot left into the Outer Hebrides last time, he's now gone and sent his next one miles right. Rory McIlroy is one understanding golfing partner.
Henrik Stenson with a superb shot towards the ninth green that just trickles off the far edge. It was a brilliantly judged shot through the wind, which is causing havoc this afternoon.
It's short from Rickie Fowler, and the Europeans move back to 1-up.
A magnificent putt from Sergio Garcia - one of the longer ones we've seen holed today. McIlroy congratulates him and that makes up for his tee shot at the previous hole. The US will have a putt for the halve.
Mickelson does it again! His short putt horseshoes at the fourth and stays out, and that moves McDowell/Dubuisson 2-up heading to the fifth. Amazing how often that happens to Lefty.
No mistake, however, from Jimmy Walker and he levels the match against Garcia/McIlroy.
Keegan Bradley misses a putt for the win against McDowell and Dubuisson, and that match remains with the Europeans at 1-up.
Graeme McDowell leaves a putt short. In his blue wind-breaker and white hat, he looks like a Smurf.
Justin Rose misses a tricky little tiddler, and it's back to all square after eight holes against Mahan/Johnson.
Garcia/McIlroy are on the green in four, and Rickie Fowler knocks it safely on to the green in three. Would be a halve "against the head", to borrow a rugby phrase.
Europe are making an utter pig's ear of the fifth, and yet it's not out of the question they could get them a halve. Again, beauty of matchplay.
Jamie Donaldson narrowly misses again with a putt at the ninth, it's a halve in five, and Europe are 1-up going into the back nine in the first foursomes match.
And Mickelson not only matches it, he betters it! Super golf from both sides.
Victor Dubuisson hits a worldy at the third. Europe in pole position on that hole now.
Or, as us Scots know it, summer.
Considering this is essentially two-ball golf, the pace of play is diabolical. Just saying.
Honestly, this was even worse than Poulter's top into the lake at the ninth this morning. And Webb Simpson's very first shot of the day. Would love to have seen Rory McIlroy's face as it happened. "Gee, thanks partner..."
Wow. Sergio Garcia at the fifth tee hits a snap-hook. That's the worst shot of the day, no question. Absolutely brutal and never mind out of bounds, it's out of Perthshire!
That, sadly, won't update automatically. Hit refresh and it should be all good.
It's all blue, but don't get too excited, European fans - every match is 1-up. That's a very slender margin in something as erratic as foursomes.
Dubuisson and McDowell move 1-up on Bradley and Mickelson, and the board is entirely blue.
Middle of the hole, what was the fuss about!
Zach Johnson has a putt to move to 1-down in the Stenson/Rose match. They are taking an age to decide the line on this, which doesn't reek of confidence.
It is enough, and Europe are 1-up in that match.
Garcia teases his putt at the third up the hill, and that should secure the hole for Europe.
Jamie Donaldson just misses the edge of the cup on the eighth, but it's a halve and he and Westwood remain 1-down.
Rickie Fowler thins his chip at the third back across the length of the green. They're likely to lose that hole as things stand.
America has the advantage at the seventh after Justin Rose fails to match a superb approach by Zach Johnson. The USA needs something soon in that match.
Lee Westwood situated nicely in the middle of the fairway thanks to Jamie Donaldson's tee shot at the eighth. it's a beautiful hole, looking out over the Scottish hills, downhill all the way. Westwood knocks a 130-yard wedge pin-high. Advantage Europe in a match they lead by a hole.
Jimmy Walker smacks one into the crowd at the third. Rory McIlroy manages to find the green from the rough with his team's second.
Meanwhile, in non-basketball action, Justin Rose puts Europe 2-up against Mahan/Johnson.
This genuinely just happened:
Michael Jordan: "Good job."
Tom Watson: "Thank you. Just like a basketball game."
Michael Jordan: "Absolutely, first quarter, take the crowd out of it, then do what you do."
