United States of America dominating Presidents Cup

30 September 2017

The shortest match of the day belonged to a pair of American rookies, Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman, who sat out the foursomes matches in the opening session.

With a 24th Presidents Cup match win, Mickelson tied the record held by Tiger Woods - who was watching at the 18th green in his role as an assistant captain.

Where the US team appears to be forging a foundation for future competitions, Price's global side continues to be mired in a jigsaw puzzle of divergent personalities and cultures that just doesn't fit together.
