DUBLIN, Ohio -- With The Presidents Cup finally reaching its halfway point, the U.S. Team is in charge, leading the International Tema by four points after the Saturday Four-ball matches were completed.
The Americans won four of the five Four-ball matches to take a 10.5 to 6.5 lead.
"The U.S. has really been unrelenting," said International Captain Nick Price. "They have just played superbly the last three days. Any slip-up from us, and we find ourselves one or two down very quickly."
Having also won the Thursday Four-ball session 3.5 to 2.5, the Americans won the Four-balls for the first time in either a Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup in 17 years.
"Obviously we played very, very well this morning," said American Captain Fred Couples.
With the schedule pushed back due to numerous rain delays, the afternoon Foursomes session will not be completed until Sunday morning. Price is hopeful his team can cut into the lead before the Sunday singles.
"We're only halfway through the competition," Price said. "We still have 17 points left."
