Match recap: Els/de Jonge (Int'1) def. Woods/Kuchar (U.S.) 1 up

Nice approach

Tiger Woods hits is 196-yard approach on the par-4 17th hole to within 11 feet in foursomes.

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Playing together for the fourth time this week, Ernie Els and Brendon de Jonge handed Americans Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar their first defeat by a 1-up score. The win was the only one for the Internationals in the second session of Foursomes competition.


The Internationals won the first hole when the U.S. side made a bogey from the fairway bunker, then two-putted from 58 feet for a birdie at the par-5 fifth to go 2 up. The two teams traded birdies and wins on the next two holes so the Internationals were 2 up at the turn when play was suspended Saturday night. The Americans came back Sunday morning and won the 10th with a par but the Internationals birdied Nos. 12 and 14 to take command -- or so it seemed -- at 3 up.  The Americans eagled the par-5 15th to cut into the lead and then de Jonge hit his tee shot at the par-3 16th into the water so the International lead was just 1 up. Kuchar missed a 10-footer for birdie to square the match at the 17th hole, then Els made a 5-footer for par and a halve at the 18th hole to preserve the victory.


Brendon de Jonge. The water-logged shot at the 16th hole notwithstanding, de Jonge continued to prove Nick Price's faith in him was well-founded.
