Dublin, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The United States extended their lead to six
points as the foursomes action that was suspended on Saturday wrapped up on
Sunday morning at The Presidents Cup.
The U.S. leads the Internationals, 14-8. Sunday's singles matches got underway
earlier than originally scheduled as there is more inclement weather in the
forecast for Sunday.
Zach Johnson's hole out eagle earned him and Jason Dufner a 4 & 3 win over
Marc Leishman and Richard Sterne on Saturday. That was the lone match to end
before darkness halted play.
When the teams returned to Muirfield Village in the morning, Keegan Bradley
and Phil Mickelson fought to a halve with the International duo of Jason Day
and Graham DeLaet. DeLaet chipped in for birdie on the 18th before Bradley
rolled in a 10-footer for birdie and the halve.
Americans Bill Haas and Steve Stricker closed out Adam Scott and Hideki
Matsuyama, 4 & 3.
The final two matches ended in 1-up decisions, with one going to each team.
Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker won four of five holes from the 13th to rally
from a 3-down deficit to earn a 1-up win over Louis Oosthuizen and Charl
Ernie Els converted a 4-foot par putt to give him and Brendon de Jonge a 1-up
win over Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar, who lost for the first time this week.
The Internationals led the whole match, and were 3-up with four to go before
the Americans won 15 and 16 to cut the deficit to 1-down, but the teams halved
the final two holes.
