Team USA wins 2022 Presidents Cup

The United States continued their domination over the International Team at the Presidents Cup. This past weekend at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Americans beat the International Team 17.5 to 12.5. The United States have now won 12 of 14 Presidents Cup events dating back to the first event in Gainesville, Virginia, in 1994.

The American star on the weekend was three-time major champion Jordan Spieth of Dallas, Texas. Spieth, who won the 2015 Masters, 2015 United States Open, and 2017 British Open, won all five of his matches. Over the first three days, Spieth teamed up with two-time PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas of Louisville, Kentucky to beat Canada’s Corey Conners and South Korea’s Sung-Jae Im 2&1 in Thursday foursome action, then the Australian duo of Adam Scott and Cameron Davis 2&1 in Friday fourball action, Im and Conners again 4&3 in Saturday foursome action, and then Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama and Canada’s Taylor Pendrith 4&3 in Saturday fourball action. Then in Sunday’s singles, Spieth beat Davis 4&3.

Over the first two days of the Presidents Cup, it was pure domination by the United States as they took a commanding 8-2 lead. The International Team won five of the eight matches on Saturday to close the gap to four points. However heading into Sunday singles action, the consensus seemed to be that the 11-7 American lead was healthy enough. The Internationals needed to win nine of the 12 matches to take the title, which seemed extremely unlikely. Of the 12 Sunday singles matches, the United States won 6.5 of 12 points, which was more than enough.
