Match update: International flavor

MELBOURNE, Australia – To win The Presidents Cup, the International team needs to win nine of 12 singles matches on Sunday.

Impossible task? Maybe not.

With all matches now on the course at Royal Melbourne, the International team has started out strong. Greg Norman’s squad leads in seven matches, with one other – Tiger Woods vs. Aaron Baddeley – all square through three holes.

Should the Internationals win eight matches, they would tie the U.S. and share the Cup. The home team entered Sunday’s play facing a 4-point deficit and an uphill climb.

But Korean K.T. Kim jumped out on top of Webb Simpson in the lead match. Charl Schwartzel is having no trouble with Dustin Johnson; neither is Ryo Ishikawa in his match against Bubba Watson. And Geoff Ogilvy leads Bill Haas in the fourth match of the day.

In addition, Adam Scott won his first three holes against Phil Mickelson.

For the Americans, Hunter Mahan (over Jason Day), Jim Furyk (over Ernie Els) and David Toms (over Robert Allenby) have the most comfortable leads.
