Golf: United States win Presidents Cup over International team


JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (Reuters) - The United States easily won their seventh consecutive Presidents Cup over the International team on Sunday but the visitors avoided a record defeat thanks to a last-day rally at Liberty National. The United States eventually prevailed 19-11 to claim the cup for the 10th time in 12 stagings of the biennial event. The International team of players from the rest of the world, excluding Europe, started the final day with a near impossible task, needing to sweep every match to snatch victory. Embarrassed after performing miserably in the foursomes and four-ball matches, the Nick Price-captained International team performed much better in man-to-man play on Sunday, though it was too little, too late. Among the International winners on the final day were former world number ones Jason Day and Adam Scott, as well as Hideki Matsuyama, currently the team's top-ranked player.
