Match 31: Furyk def. Els 4 and 3

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Jim Furyk completed an undefeated run through the 2011 Presidents Cup on Sunday when he beat Ernie Els 4 and 3.

Only three other players -- Mark O'Meara in 1996, Shigeki Maruyama in 1998 and Tiger Woods in 2009 --  have gone 5-0 at the biennial event. Furyk won three matches with Phil Mickelson at his side and the fourth with Nick Watney on Saturday afternoon.

Furyk's point insured the United States at least a tie at the Presidents Cup. The U.S. now leads 17-14.

Furyk took the lead Sunday with a birdie on the second hole. He never trailed and doggedly built his advantage, twice getting to 4 up before earning the win.

The American now has a 20-10-3 record in seven Presidents Cup appearances. If Tiger Woods goes on to win his Singles match – he’s 4 up with four holes remaining – he and Furyk will be tied for the most matches won in Presidents Cup history.
