Match 26: Ogilvy def. Haas 2 up

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Geoff Ogilvy completed an International sweep of the first four matches when he beat Bill Haas 2 up.

The point moved the International Team within three points of the U.S. at 16-13 -- but needing to win the five remaining matches to win the Presidents Cup. The Internationals led in only one of those and another was all square.

Haas actually picked up the first win of the match when he parred the fourth hole. But Ogilvy birdied the next to square the affair and then went 1 up with a par at No. 8.

Haas, who didn't make a birdie until the 17th hole, evened the match briefly when he parred No. 11. But Ogilvy, who grew up in a house adjacent to Royal Melbourne, responded with another birdie at the next and hung tough until Haas bogeyed No. 18 for the final margin.
