A look back at the first day of the Presidents Cup

by

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A quick look at day one of Presidents Cup games at Quail Hollow Club.

THE SCORE: United States 4, International 1.

UNBEATEN: Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele improved to 5-0 in foursomes in Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup matches. Their 6 and 5 victory was the shortest four-legged match in a Presidents Cup since 2011.

INTERNATIONAL POINT: Si Woo Kim and Cameron Davis earned the international team’s only point winning the last four holes in a two-way win over Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns.

THE ROOKIES: Three Americans playing in their first professional cup – Max Homa, Cameron Young and Sam Burns – went 2-1.

HIT OF THE DAY: Justin Thomas made a 25-foot putt on the 15th hole that led to a 2-point lead and sent Thomas and Jordan Spieth to a 2-and-1 win.

NOTE: Spieth is the first player in Presidents Cup history to win his first six foursome games. He did it with four partners – Steve Stricker (2013), Dustin Johnson (2015), Patrick Reed (2017) and Justin Thomas (2022).

KEY STATISTIC: The international team led for three of the 83 holes played.

QUOTEWORTHY: “No one here expects us to win. We have to have that belief deep inside of us. Go out there and fight. We’re facing perhaps the strongest American team ever assembled on paper — International Captain Trevor Immelman.

FRIDAY: Five four-ball matches.

TV: Friday 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Golf Channel).
