The U.S. has a four-point lead entering Sunday’s singles at the Presidents Cup, 11-7, a comfortable advantage with 12 points remaining in play at Quail Hollow Club.
But it could have been even more comfortable.
Late rallies from the International duos of Tom Kim and Si Woo Kim and Adam Scott and Cam Davis, turned around their Saturday afternoon four-ball matches, giving the Internationals a surprising 3-1 edge in the session. It’s the first time captain Trevor Immelman’s underdog road team has won a session all week in North Carolina.
Even so, the Americans are still in command, needing to win just 4½ of the points in the final session to pull out the victory. And while Davis Love III knows from improbably Sunday comebacks—he was the American captain at the 2012 Ryder Cup when the Europeans were down four entering singles pulled off the upset—that might actually serve as motivation for the Americans to come out quickly and not get complacent as they try to win the match for the ninth straight time and the 12th in 14 overall playings.
