United States clinch Presidents Cup over worldwide team

For the most part, everything else went the Americans' way.

Sometimes one team is simply better than the other and the global team's record over the first three days makes ugly reading.

"That was the best song, for sure", Johnson said. "We've got a great team". As we know, they can heat up like a microwave, especially Spieth with his scorching hot flat stick.

"It gave us a little more fire and momentum going into today".

"I was looking forward to this Presidents Cup for a very long time, and I didn't expect all the presidents to be there", Schwartzel said. "Sometimes I marvel at the shots they are capable of hitting and the way they conduct themselves on the golf course".

But with the shadows lengthening, and both teams watching, Lahiri and Kim birdied the 15th and 16th to go from 1-down to 1-up and held on for the global win.

President Donald Trump will return to New Jersey this weekend and is expected to make an appearance at the Presidents Cup taking place in Jersey City. Koepka and Johnson, the past two U.S. Open champions, never trailed in their win, with Koepka's birdies on the 13th and 15th holes ultimately deciding the match. On the 18th, Lahiri facing a four-footer - similar to the one he missed two years earlier in Korea - did not have to make it as the Americans conceded the par putt and the match.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that the government of Canada also strongly disagrees with the USA tariff ruling. She tweeted this morning: " Bitterly disappointed by initial Bombardier ruling". ( Bombardier builds the C Series in Montreal).

The scoreline at the end of the Thursday foursomes, 3.5 to 1.5, was as close as the margin got as it blew out to 8-2 after the Friday fourball matches. The last time the two sides met up, the US had a one-point win while in Incheon, South Korea back in 2015.

Later in the afternoon, Daniel Berger and Justin Thomas rallied from 3 down through the first four holes to beat the global pairing of Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela and Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, 3 and 2.

Can Oosthuizen, Grace and the rest of the worldwide team rise up?

ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Sam Saunders has become the seventh player in Web.com Tour history to fire a 59 or better as he tries to regain his PGA Tour card.

Then the Americans came back, as they have around the turn all week.

McKee confirmed that Spieth was disqualified, meaning he could not take his birdie putt and handing the hole to Day and Oosthuizen, who had appeared to sympathise with Spieth. When the celebration died, Lahiri poured in a 20-footer for birdie to stay 1 up. Scott made a tough par save on the 17th to extend the match. On the par-3 16th, Oosthuizen hit his tee shot inside six feet, but missed his birdie attempt after Thomas almost holed another bunker shot for birdie.

Only the Jordan Spieth/Patrick Reed vs Hideki Matsuyama/Adam Hadwin battle was halved.
