Presidents Cup Tracker

UPDATE No. 16 (5:43 p.m.): We’ve got a final score. A dominant U.S. performance.

UPDATE No. 15 (5:12 p.m.): Rickie Fowler dominates in the final match off. It’s a 6-and-4 win for Fowler over Grillo.

It’s now 17.5-10.5, U.S. The Internationals will win this session, as they already have seven points Sunday. But that’s still way too late.

UPDATE No. 14 (5:08 p.m.): Jhonattan Vegas defeats Jordan Spieth, moving Spieth to 0-5 in singles in Presidents and Ryder cups.

UPDATE No. 13 (4:49 p.m.): The Internationals appear determined to make this as small a final loss as possible.

They’ve won two matches at the 18th, including Oosthuizen over Reed!

The U.S. has still won, but it’s now 16-9.

UPDATE No. 12 (4:23 p.m.): Daniel Berger has finished this one off!

He defeats Kim, 2 and 1, and the U.S. now leads 16-6. The U.S. has now won the 2017 Presidents Cup.

UPDATE No. 11 (4 p.m.): Daniel Berger has finished this one off!

He’s dormie-3 in his match against Kim and that means a guaranteed half-point and the U.S. will now have 15.5 or more points and the win!

The Internationals halved the first match and won the second before falling, but they had almost no chance Sunday. The Cup stays with the U.S., which is now 10-1-1 in this competition.

UPDATE No. 10 (3:45 p.m.): Daniel Berger and Si Woo Kim continue to impress.

Kim drains a 40-footer for birdie at No. 14, but Berger rolls in a 23-footer right on top of him to halve the hole. Berger is 3 up still.

If Berger halves the 15th hole, he goes dormie-3 and guarantees the half-point the U.S. needs to finish off a win.

UPDATE No. 9 (3:43 p.m.): Kevin Chappell wins No. 17 to square the match against Leishman and they halve 18 to halve the match.

The U.S. now leads 15-4 and is guaranteed a tie or better at this Presidents Cup. 15.5 points gets them the win.

UPDATE No. 8 (3:30 p.m.): Donald Trump, as expected, has arrived at the Presidents Cup!

UPDATE No. 7 (3:22 p.m.): Daniel Berger and Si Woo Kim both birdie No. 11, leading to this amazing exchange. Berger still 2 up.

UPDATE No. 6 (3:14 p.m.): Beautiful from Justin Thomas, but he’s still down in his match. The Americans are actually down in the first three matches. But they lead several others.

UPDATE No. 5 (2:21 p.m.): Kevin Chappell makes a mess of No. 9, going in the water twice, to lose that hole.

He then appeared to contemplate hitting from TV tower after wild approach at No. 10 before doing through drop options. But then he’s penalized for grounding his club in a hazard and conceded the hole.

His 2-up lead is thus gone!

UPDATE No. 4 (1:38 p.m.): There are four American flags to the Internationals’ one here early Sunday. That incredible sweep-the-session comeback already had basically one-million-to-one odds. It’s probably more like one-billion-to-one now.

UPDATE No. 3 (1:32 p.m.): So far, it’s pretty even on this Sunday.

Matsuyama is finally playing well!

UPDATE No. 2 (12:40 p.m.): Well, the Americans aren’t letting up.

Kevin Chappell holes out for eagle at No. 2 to take the lead in the opening match!

UPDATE No. 1 (12 p.m.): We’ve got 12 singles matches coming at Liberty National on this Sunday. Remember, the U.S. needs just one point (so one win, or two halves) to secure the Cup.

This one is likely to be over well before the final singles match finishes, but you never know… Anyway, the first singles match (Chappell vs. Leishman) is about here!
