    It was total domination for Team USA at the 2017 Presidents Cup, with Team International's chances at victory slipping away from the very start. The Americans' victory was bigger than the final 19-11 score indicated: Team USA came within a point and a half of clinching victory after just the third of the four days of competition.

    Over the first three sessions of play, Team International won only a single match (Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen won a foursomes match on the first day), and halved three others.

    For the first three days of the competition (comprising four playing sessions), Team USA won 13 of the 18 matches played.

    The Internationals did play better in the final day's singles matches, earning 7.5 points. But Daniel Berger's win over Si Woo Kim in Game 4 finished off the victory for Team USA.
