Presidents Cup: The international team fills the gap

The international team worked hard to get back in the hunt for the Presidents Cup, winning the majority of games on Saturday to make it even more difficult for the Americans heading into the final day at Quail Hollow Golf Club in North Carolina.

The score is now 11-7 for Team USA, who will need four and a half points to get the trophy. The tournament will end on Sunday with 12 singles rounds.

On Saturday, the athletes were divided into two groups of four duels, one according to the format of “alternate shots” and the other in “four balls, best ball”. Some played both rounds, including Adam Scott and Tom Kim, who won both games.

The 20-year-old South Korean carried the international representatives on his shoulders on his second assignment at the Charlotte track, scoring no fewer than three Eagles. At the Eleventh Banner, he noticeably stopped a 53-foot roll, before bursting with glee in front of an conquering crowd.

Kim teamed up with his compatriots Se Woo Kim and KH Lee on the day which ended 5-3 in favor of the internationals.

The American stars were undoubtedly the duo of Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. The two men came together beautifully, winning the duels by a comfortable four-hole margin. They also added among their Canadian victims Taylor Pendrith and Cory Conners, who have been paired respectively with Hideki Matsuyama and Songjae M.
