At one point in Saturday morning’s President’s Cup session, Team USA led all four games – but the internationals fought back to earn the split the next morning. Getting defeated in the first two days.
In the afternoon session, the The internationals made it a ball game.
The Internationals fought back and earned three points to the American in the afternoon, giving themselves at least a chance to win the Presidents Cup for the first time since 1998. Team USA is now up 11-7.
Tom Kim is only 20 years old, but he definitely shines and loves the spotlight. The Presidents Cup squad dropped big hits all day, but nothing was bigger than a 10-foot juice throw in an 18 to give him and Si Woo Kim a 1 win over Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, who went 2-0 in their first two days in dominant fashion.
Kim told the media that he wanted this force to enter “more than anything else in the world.”
It was the first match that starts in the afternoon, but the final match ends. Sam Burns and Billy Hurschel did not track 15 holes against Adam Scott and Cam Davis. But with 1 going into 16, they lost consecutive holes.
All four golfers dug iron shots 18 within 10 feet of the hole – Burns was 3 feet, but Davis’ birdie won the game, putting the internationals four points from the US to finish the day.
Scott went 2-0 on the day after losing his first two games of the tournament – a much-needed comeback from one of the team’s veteran players.
Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth continued their dominance, winning their matches on Saturday 4 and 3. Thomas 10-0-2 In a team match in the President’s Cup and 14-2-3 in a team match including Ryder Cup matches. Spieth is 20-6-3 in the tag team game and 12-2-1 in the Presidents Cup. He and Spieth improved to 8-2 as partners, and 4-0-0 in this tournament.
Team USA needs 4.5 points to retain the trophy they won eight times in a row – the two teams tied in 2003. The Internationals need 8.5 to win it.
But with 12 singles on Sunday, anything is possible, and the momentum, though a healthy mountain to climb, is by the way – so much so that international captain Trevor Immelman said he was on the verge of tears.
