Trump considering attending Presidents Cup

Trump considering attending Presidents Cup

The biggest margin of victory at the Presidents Cup is 21.5-10.5 when the United States defeated the Internationals at Robert Trent Jones GC in Virginia in 2000.

Saturday was the clincher, though, the Internationals capitulating completely and giving the U.S. a chance to win the Cup before a ball was struck in the Sunday singles.

Louis Oosthuizen's frustration at missing a putt typifies the worldwide team's angst. Jordan Spieth's best intentions cost him a hole in a ruling rarely seen in match play, though that didn't matter in another point. "If you look at how they have played the back nine, that's where they really outplayed us", he added.

"I'm speechless right now, " Berger said.

The Sunday singles have yet to kick off, but we won't be waiting up, that's for sure. I didn't play good.

Also scoring points for the USA were Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, who birdied the final two holes for a 3&2 decision over Australia's Adam Scott and Venezuela's Jhonattan Vegas, and Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas with a 3&2 victory over South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace. "They're trying hard. But part of me is, 'ey, we won, you know?'" "But we very much liked the day and the way it started", he said. The match was tied at the turn before Spieth and Reed birdied the 12th and 13th holes to go 2 up.

It's also expected to cut the corporate rate to 20% - not as much as Trump's desired 15%, but still a step in the right direction. Republican senators on opposing sides of the deficit debate have tentatively agreed on a plan for $1.5 trillion in tax cuts.

Fowler and Thomas were next on the board with a 3&2 victory over Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace, breaking Grace's streak of six points in succession dating back to the 2015 matches in Korea.

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. On the par-3 18th, he produced another brilliant up-and-down to deny the Americans a clean slate in the evening Four balls. Lahiri and Kim led 1-up after the ninth.

The 24-year-old went on to win 2 and 1, giving the U.S. a 16-6 lead after Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama had beaten Charley Hoffman and FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas. But that only served to fire up the USA duo. Then the Americans won three straight holes with birdies to seize the match.

The task won't be easy, though, as Spieth has never lost a foursomes match in the Presidents Cup (4-0-0).

By the time Berger wrapped up his 2 & 1 victory over Kim, victories for Aussie Jason Day and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama were irrelevant and it was certain that US President Donald Trump would be presenting the trophy to the home side on Sunday evening. Leishman hit his approach to 5 feet into the wind on the 14th along the Hudson River for another 1-up lead, and it stayed that way until Leishman missed the fairway on the 17th and a bogey squared the match.

Lahiri was only informed of the infraction after teeing off at the 4th and was not permitted to finish that hole.
