Presidents Cup Capsules
Question of the Day
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (AP) - Capsules from Sunday’s singles matches at the Presidents Cup:
K.T. Kim, International, def. Webb Simpson, United States, 1 up.
Kim built a 3-up lead quickly when Simpson three-putted on consecutive holes, and Kim fired an approach into 4 feet for birdie on No. 7. This match looked like an International win all the day until Simpson cut into the lead late. He birdied the 15th hole to go 1 down, then squared the match on the 16th when Kim failed to save par from a bunker, lipped out the putt. But the South Korean came up big, holing a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th to regain the lead, and a 6-foot par putt on the 18th to win.
Charl Schwartzel, International, def. Dustin Johnson, United States, 2 and 1.
Schwartzel took charge with a birdie at the par-5 second, and Johnson twice watched his ball come off the front of the third green for a double bogey. Johnson three-putted the ninth as Schwartzel went 3 up at the turn. Johnson made his first birdie at No. 12, and a birdie on the 15th pulled him within 2 down. Both bogeyed the 16th, and Schwartzel holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th for the win.
Ryo Ishikawa, International, def. Bubba Watson, United States, 3 and 2.
Watson drove the first green to set up an easy birdie and 1-up lead, but that was it. He failed to get up-and-down from the bunker on the par-5 second and lost the hole with a par, but the lasting image came at the par-3 third. Ishikawa’s second shot didn’t get up the slope and rolled back to his feet, as Watson was on the top tier of the green. Ishikawa did well to make bogey. With two putts to win the hole, Watson’s putt rolled off the green and into the fairway, and he lost the hole with a double bogey. Ishikawa was 3 up at the turn, and Watson never got any closer.
Geoff Ogilvy, International, def. Bill Haas, United States, 2 up.
Ogilvy produced a point in four of the five matches he played, and all four went to the 18th green. He holed a 4-foot birdie putt on the fifth to square the match, then took the lead for good on the 12th when he holed a 60-foot birdie putt. Both players made bogey on the 16th, and Haas appeared to square the match with his 20-foot birdie putt on the 17th. Ogilvy poured in a 15-footer to match him, then hit two solid shots onto the 18th green to secure the win.
Mahan made a dramatic putt on the 17th hole to squash a Day celebration the day before, and he made sure there was no drama in singles. Day played his worst golf of the week, making no birdies and only two pars on the front nine. It was so bad that Mahan didn’t make a birdie, had two bogeys and was 5 up at the turn. Day got within 3 down when Mahan made double bogey on the 13th, but Mahan holed an 18-foot birdie putt on the 14th and a 15-footer on the 15th.
