Mickelson matches Woods with record 24 wins at Presidents Cup

A penalty on Jordan Spieth had Presidents Cup players shaking their heads in consternation on Saturday over a "stupid" rule of golf.

It's hard to have more fun as a team than the USA had this week, owning a talented International Team, which entered Sunday down 14 ½ to 3 ½ before winning the singles session 7 ½ to 4 ½, as if they were playing 12 players from the old Hooters Tour. They lead 14 ½-3 ½ in a week that has produced about as much suspense as your average Harlem Globetrotters game.

Needing to win all four afternoon fourballs to wrap up a one-sided victory, the U.S. team were denied as Anirban Lahiri and Kim Si Woo defeated Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman 1 UP to leave the score at 14.5 to 3.5. Otherwise, not one of the singles matches - normally the most dramatic phase of global team play - would have mattered at all. The final score was 19-11.

USA captain Steve Stricker was not quite ready to deliver his victory speech, but said the team was one of the strongest he has been involved with.

Eight matches were still to be completed when Berger wrapped up his victory.

And US captain Steve Stricker is hoping for a loud support. "And going forward, matches can flip either way, the same way they did this week". "It's more about who wins than anything else".

In an odd way, Lahiri and Kim faced pressure Saturday.

But it would not matter in the end with Spieth and Reed eventually winning the four-ball match play two-and-one.

The plan wipes out the death tax, and offers good and bad news for small business, which will affect brokers and agents. Republicans might split on parts of the plan. "This huge tax cut will be the rocket fuel for our economy", Trump said.

Day after day, Price has lamented his team's inability to close the door on Americans. I'll always look back and think about who I played with.

Aside from that, Saturday was all American.

A record equalling win for Phil Mickelson helped the United States seize an unprecedented second-day lead against an over-matched worldwide team at the Presidents Cup on Friday. Leishman's Presidents Cup record is 3-4-2. He didn't play the afternoon best-ball session and spent time with teammate Rickie Fowler taking selfies with US fans.

Another former world number one, Adam Scott, is 0-3-0 this week, while Hideki Matsuyama, the top-ranked player on the worldwide team, has earned just half a point.

After two relatively simple victories, they will go up against the global squad of Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace - the best tandem for the opposition who get a shot at redemption after losing to the Americans on Friday.

Led by top-ranked Dustin Johnson and world number two Jordan Spieth, the United States have an average world ranking of 15 and have combined for 17 US PGA Tour titles this year - including the three most recent major championships. "They played well all year long and they came here with a lot of confidence". "Whatever happens, happens. It's really an outstanding tournament with 24 fantastic players and fantastic people".

The Rules of Golf do not require a player use the same type of ball throughout a round.

Els said that Grace looks up to Oosthuizen "and listens to him".
