MELBOURNE, Australia – Hunter Mahan and David Toms put another point on the board for the Americans when they beat Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel 5 and 4.
The Americans trailed early after a bogey at the fourth hole, but got that back at No. 5 when the Internationals did the same thing. Mahan and Toms seized the upper hand quickly after squaring the match, winning three of their next four holes with an eagle, birdie and par.
The South Africans, who had beaten the Americans in Four-Balls on Friday afternoon, never found their rhythm in the alternate shot competition. The duo made just two birdies and five bogeys, including on the last two holes to give the U.S. the win.
