The US have secured their win in the Presidents Cup with a dominating performance all weekend. The final score of 19-11 saw the US team lose only one session being the final round of singles matches. Berger, Mickelson and Fowler were the only Americans to win their singles matches with the Internationals putting on a last impressive and desperate performance to win 6 of the matches with 3 being halved. Phil Mickelson now holds the record for most Presidents Cup matches won with today’s win securing 26 overall wins. That surpasses Tiger by 2 and Furyk by 6!
Despite the dominant and convincing win, today’s singles matches weren’t without hope for the Internationals. Si Woo Kim fought hard in his loss to first time Presidents Cup player Daniel Berger, giving the fans something to talk about after a Patrick Reed inspired celebration after holing a clutch birdie putt.
You could really tell the Americans were having fun this week and they showed the world that they had formed perhaps one of the greatest Presidents Cup teams of all time, with many commentators comparing them with the 1981 Ryder Cup team for the US that hosted the likes of Trevino, Kite, Watson, Crenshaw and Nicklaus to mention a few.
An unbelievable performance that sees the US win their 7th consecutive Presidents Cup!
