Scott-Matsuyama (Int'l) and Haas-Simpson (U.S), halved

DUBLIN, Ohio -- The International duo of Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama, who never led in the match, won the final hole to halve their Four-ball match against the American duo of Bill Haas and Webb Simpson on Thursday at The Presidents Cup.

QUICK LOOK

The Americans lef after the first 10 holes, but a Scott birde at the par-5 11th squared the match. The Americans immediately answered, with Haas winning the next two holes with birdies. But Scott won the 15th with an eagle before Matsuyama, the only player on either side who had not previously played at Muirfield Village, found his game late. He birdied the 16th hole to square the match, and after the U.S. claimed the 17th on another Haas birdie, the young Japanese star won the 18th with a birdie to claim a valuable half-point.

MAN OF THE MATCH

Adam Scott. The Masters champ was superb, with six birdies and an eagle, keeping his team in the match before Matsuyama supplied the late heroics.
