GM speaks to a selection of European and American Ryder Cup players to get their thoughts on Saturday’s play and the forthcoming singles…

Paul Lawrie – on Sunday’s singles…
“Until it’s impossible to do it, then you fight on. No one is going to be giving up. There are 12 matches left out there. You never know what can happen.”

Nicolas Colsaerts – on his fourballs match with Kuchar and Johnson…
“I didn’t really make the putts that would have made the difference, and Dustin holes one on 17 that saves the day.”

Justin Rose – On the form of Watson and Simpson…
“They [Simpson and Watson] are a formidable team. Give credit where credit is due, they played great. I think they got their own back on Ian Poulter from this morning,”

Francesco Molinari – on the US team’s dominance…
“They have been holing more putts and have had the momentum with them.”

Zach Johnson – On his relationship with Jason Dufner…
“We think the same. Our mentalities are the same. The only thing that was different today was that Duff carried me.”

Jason Dufner – On Johnson…
“Yep. It’s just been a good chemistry.”

Brandt Snedeker – On playing with Furyk…
“It’s really tough; it’s hard to get a rhythm. I did my best to mess up at 18, but [Jim] bailed me out and played great.”

Keegan Bradley – The Ryder Cup versus a Major…
“The most emotional week for me was winning the PGA Championship and having my life change overnight. But this is a different type of emotion.”

Ian Poulter – On the 1st tee atmosphere and crowd participation…
“It was ridiculous. That was pretty special when Bubba pumped up the crowd [on the 1st tee]. I knew he was going to do it, so why not join him.”
