The Ryder Cup often serves as a showcase for exceptional golf, but Brooks Koepka was guilty of a horror shot on Saturday.

The big-hitting American was faced with a tough second from the rough on the long par-four 12th hole at Hazeltine, and hit a screaming shank off the hosel.

However, to his credit, Koepka responded superbly to move to the brink of a second win in tandem with Brandt Snedeker.

After a number of wayward shots earlier in the round, rookie Koepka followed up his shank by hitting a wonderful four iron at the 253-yard 13th - setting up a birdie chance that Snedeker converted to put the Americans one up on Henrik Stenson and Matt Fitzpatrick.

Koepka then rolled in a lengthy putt on the 15th, leaving Stenson and Fitzpatrick two down with three to play.
