American festival at the start of the President’s Cup

The most unequal team competition of how many are held in world golf quickly took the tone of the previous ones. The United States, with four victories out of a possible five in the foursomes -alternative shots- of Quail Hollow, the course of Charlotte, in North Carolina, put the direct to revalidate for the eighth consecutive time (nine victories) the President’s Cup.

Only world number 1, Scottie Scheffler, paired with Sam Burns, succumbed to Si Woo Kim and Cameron Davis, protagonists of a superb comeback, with the last four holes won and two under par. They surprised the pair of the winner of the Augusta Masters and the PGA two up.

In the rest, it was all victories for the Americans, who have held the cup since 1998 (there was a tie back in 2003), the Melbourne edition where the rest of the planet, except Europe, crushed the American team.

Some of them were scandalous, like the one achieved by Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay, who beat Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama (6 and 5). For the minimum came the triumph in Rome of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, the fashionable couple in the Presidents; as well as those of Cameron Young and Colllin Morikawa against Tom Kim and KH: Lee. The first two succumbed by 2 and 1 and the one that took place against the Koreans was a little more run down, taking the lead from the 6th hole, then tied at the 10th, to rule the country of Yin and Yan.
