DUBLIN, Ohio -- The American duo of Bill Haas and Webb Simpson rolled past the International duo of Angel Cabrera and Branden Grace, 4 & 3, in Saturday's Four-ball match at The Presidents Cup.
Haas and Grace exchanged birdies on the first two holes, but at the par-4 sixth, the Americans took control of the match. Haas birdied the hole, with Simpson following with a birdie at the par-5 seventh to win that hole. Grace got one back for the Internationals with a birdie at the eighth, but the Americans responsed by winning the next two holes. A Simpson birdie at the 13th had the U.S. 4-up and they closed out the match two holes later. Haas had eight birdies on his own ball, with Simpson adding four birdies in a display of firepower that Cabrera and Grace could not match.
