6:06 pm
>> again, the only match won by the internationals this week was on thursday in the morning foursome with branden grace pan louis oosthuizen, the formidable unbeaten duo from 2015. that is it so far as lahiri and kim won their fifth today. total. >> that's a nice shot by the way that's a nice finish by him showed a lot of class that he could hit the shots. from the last hole and this shot forces the u.s. to have to hole it out. >> and again, lahiri was on the short end of a 6 and 5, robbed by chappell and hoffmann in the four-balls yesterday.

6:09 pm
>> so that's the third for hoffmann. >> maybe mickelson will be the first out tomorrow. on his 23rd straight international cup competition. >> it's been a long day. he was clean shaven this morning. >> all right. so here is si woo kim with his third coming back up the slope.
6:10 pm
what a scene, what a setting. the background. i guess i've never seen anything like in in a golf competition. now chappell. >> not an easy read here, dan. this is moving quite a bit to the right as it loses speed. so he brought charley in for help on the read. >> yeah, you see lahiri's markup there to the left. for his par, they have the 1-up lead. so chappel h
6:11 pm
and he does. >> nice putt. really nice putt. >> so that is all that's left for lahiri to clinch just the second. oh. that's what we all i think wanted to see. great sportmanship by lahiri and hoffmann and chappell and indeed. just a second match the internationals won all week. so it goes into the 12 singles matches, 14 1/2 to 13 1/2. the united states a single point away from winning the president's cup. so long from liberty national right now where the u.s. has just been too tough. just a matter of time tomorrow before they make it official. and win the president's cup again.
