Americans take first point at Presidents Cup
The Americans have drawn first blood in the Presidents Cup in Montreal.
The duo of Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan beat Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy 3 and 2 in today’s opening foursomes, with Stricker holing out the winning putt from 10 feet on No. 16.
“It was important for us to get off to a good start,” he said after the round.
Thirty minutes later, Phil Mickelson, teamed with Woody Austin, stared down and sank a 12-footer to square their match against Vijay Singh and hometown favorite Mike Weir.
Overall, the Americas are all square in three ongoing matches. David Toms and Jim Furyk are up two against Ernie Els and Angel Cabrera, while Tiger Woods and Charles Howell III are up one against K.J. Choi and Nick O’Hern.
Tomorrow, the event moves to four balls, followed by foursomes and four balls on Saturday. The Cup culminates with Sunday singles.
Beginning tomorrow, I will be reporting from the Presidents Cup in Montreal. Stay tuned to WorldGolf.com for ongoing coverage.
