DUBLIN, Ohio -- The International duo of Jason Day and Graham DeLaet rallied late to beat the American duo of Hunter Mahan and Brandt Snedeker on the last hole in their Four-ball match at The Presidents Cup.
The Internationals won the opening hole, but the Americans answered by winning the next three holes and mantained the advantage for most of the match, going 3 up after Snedeker's birdie at the sixth. But Day and DeLaet hung tough and were only 1 down after 13 holes. DeLaet then made three consecutive birdies, winning two holes and putting the Internationals 1 up. The Americans answered by winning the 17th hole on Snedeker's birdie. At the pivotal 18th, both Americans played poor approach shots, and Day won the hole and the match by rolling in a birdie putt.
MAN OF THE MATCH
Graham DeLaet. Although Day had the winning putt, it was the Canadian -- playing in his first Presidents Cup -- who carried his team. He made six birdies, including the three consecutive birdies to turn the momentum on the back nine.
