The biggest story from Thursday's action was the Americans' only outright loss - a drubbing of the once-invincible Tiger Woods-Steve Stricker tandem. Adam Scott and K.J. Choi dispatched of them quickly, winning the match 7 and 6. For more on that match, check out Jeff Rude's column on the handshake that started the day and the beat-down that ended it.

If you missed the action on Thursday, check out our match-by-match capsules, complete with analysis and turning points.
