Internationals battling at Presidents Cup

President Trump presented the trophy to the American team.

A star-studded USA team came into the week with all 12 players ranked inside the world's top 30, compared to just six for the Internationals, and four of the Americans are within the top 10. Scott and Vegas birdied the first two holes for a 2-up lead, the Americans answered by winning the next two holes and it was tight the rest of the way.

Two years ago the missed four-footer cost Internationals the chance to share the Presidents Cup.

"I've been watching this from the beginning, and I have to say, our Team USA, wow, did you play well, " said Trump, noting the 19-11 victory over an worldwide team of golfers. Otherwise, not one of the singles matches - normally the most dramatic phase of global team play - would have mattered at all.

"I know he probably lost a little sleep over that last n night", Stricker said. He didn't play the afternoon best-ball session and spent time with teammate Rickie Fowler taking selfies with US fans. "They continued it right through this tournament here". Both teams bring a lot of rookies into the mix.

"I think we're going to be sharp and ready to go because we respect and understand how good the global players are". "It's going to be tough to be part of because it's so deep and so strong".

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas rolled to a 6-5 rout, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed were 5-and-4 winners, and Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar earned a 1-up victory.

Not surprisingly, the Americans lacked intensity with the job nearly done, but they got there easily enough - 19-11 - with impressive rookie Daniel Berger beating Si Woo Kim to see them over the line. "What a feeling. You dream of moments like this".

"It was a disappointing result, but could've been worse", added Leishman.

For the Americans, the week raised their already-lofty expectations for the Ryder Cup in France in 2018.

The Americans' six-point lead is the biggest ever held after two days of the competition, which sees 30 points up for grabs over four days.

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

Trump's courses this year have hosted the U.S. Women's Open and the Senior PGA Championship. I'm exhausted. It's a long process. I'm hoping that I can redeem myself this week.

"You start to kind of look forward and wonder where this momentum could take us".

International Team captain Nick Price summed it up best.

United States captain Sticker was pleased with the day overall.
