At The Turn: Jamie Donaldson, Lee Westwood struggling on day two at Ryder Cup

Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan take a three-hole lead over Jamie Donaldson and Lee Westwood in the morning fourballs on day two of the Ryder Cup.

After their impressive foursome display together on day one of the 40th Ryder Cup, Europe's Jamie Donaldson and Lee Westwood aren't having it all their own way in day two's morning fourballs.

The British duo are 3 down halfway through their match against Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan after failing to win a hole on the front nine.

Mahan got the Americans off to a flying start with a birdie at the first before Furyk, who has only ever won one of his previous 10 fourball Ryder Cup matches, put them 2 up with a lengthy birdie putt at the third.

Donaldson and Westwood were playing solid, but unspectacular golf and needed birdies to claw the match back in their favour.

They couldn't find any, though, and USA were 3 up when Mahan birdied his second hole of the morning at the seventh.

Donaldson and Westwood did birdie the eighth and ninth, but so did the Americans to maintain their three-hole lead.
