Garrick Porteus and Rhys Pugh (GB&I) def.

Michael Weaver and Todd White (USA), 3 and 1:

A magical summer for the 23-year-old Porteus (British Amateur, Scottish Stroke Play titles) continued with a rousing performance to lead the way to a point for his GB&I team.

Porteus hit a deft pitch from behind the green to set up a short birdie at the par-4 second, rolled in a birdie at the fourth, then hit a massive drive at the seventh to lead to another birdie and give GB&I a 2-hole lead it would never relinquish.

Three down through 10, the Americans won the 11th and 14th with birdies, but chopped up the par-4 15th with a double-bogey. Porteus put an exclamation point on things with a birdie putt at the par-4 17th.

The visitors led for 15 of the 17 holes, never trailed, and played the three par 3s in 2-under.
