Mahan solid, Day struggles

MELBOURNE, Australia -- The last time Hunter Mahan played a Singles match for the U.S. the Ryder Cup was on the line.

Mahan ended up losing the 17th hole, as well as the match to Graeme McDowell, and that turned the tide in Europe's favor. The loss was so painful Mahan broke down in the press conference after the event was over.

Mahan is having a much easier time on Sunday at the Presidents Cup with Jason Day, though.  He's 5 up through 10 holes and primed to put the first U.S. point on the board.

Day has experienced what can only be called a terrible afternoon. He shot 44 on the front nine, making five bogeys, two double bogeys and just three pars.

At one point, International Captain Greg Norman came over and talked with Day. When NBC's Jimmy Roberts asked what he said, Norman just smiled and indicated he couldn't repeat it on TV. 

"I just told him we all go through things like this," Norman said. "I told him to keep his focus."
