The double ‘J’, Justin and Jordan, lead the United States in the President’s Cup

American golf is preparing for a new coronation in the President’s Cup, the competition that pits men’s golf in that country against the rest of the world except Europe. After Saturday, the Davis Love III leaderboard wins by 11 points to 7, a juicy distance to face the 12 singles at Quail Hollow field, Charlotte (North Carolina).

The reaction of Trevor Immelmann’s team in the afternoon prevented the sentence. So, Si Woo Kim and young, 20-year-old Tom Kim – who won both matches of the day as did Adam Scott – beat Cantlay and Schauffele on the last hole, just like the aforementioned Aussie and Cameron Smith did a few minutes later. against Horschel and Burns, in the match that ended the day. Previously Sungjem Im and Sebastin Muoz had won 3 and 2 with the rock couple Finau and Kisner. (See results)
