United States of America leave the Internationals trailing in New Jersey

Trump arrives aboard Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews Maryland

A look at the scoreboard suggests the best players in the world have been here for three days playing against the Liberty National members' B Flight.

Veteran Phil Mickelson then made a 12-foot birdie on the 18th as he and Kevin Kisner came from two down at the turn to win one up against Jason Day and Marc Leishman. Spieth was denied his attempt at a 12-foot birdie putt to halve the hole.

About the only thing that went wrong was the celebration.

It looked a little awkward, though Mickelson did slightly better than when he cropped most of his face out of a selfie he took during the opening ceremony with the last three US presidents.

"I'm clearly the worst selfie taker".

That being said, the Sunday singles match I'm most interested in watching is Oosthuizen vs. Reed. Leishman's Presidents Cup record is 3-4-2.

"A really special day for us", said United States captain Steve Stricker.

Reed in particular, showed his love of these team formats with another passionate display where he virtually beat the Australian duo on his own with his short game and putting, words I'm afraid that have rarely been used in the same sentence in relation to the Internationals this week.

While the pair of Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth get most of the attention for Team USA, Johnson is actually the lone player on the squad to have won all four of his matches.

Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler were next in with a 3&2 victory over the previously unbeaten South African duo of Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace.

Thomas had represented the United States in five separate worldwide events as an amateur or junior golfer before making his men's team national debut Thursday. "They were just a little better".

On Saturday, as soon as Mickelson hit his wedge shot close on the 17th, the crowd near the hole began to murmur.

After both sitting out day one the rookie pairing of Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell drew first blood for captain Steve Stricker, accounting for an out of sorts Anirban Lahiri and Charl Schwartzel 6&5.

World No 1 Johnson and Matt Kuchar secured a comfortable 4&3 win over Adam Hadwin and Adam Scott while Phil Mickelson and Kevin Kisner continued their unbeaten ways this week for a 2&1 success over Jhonattan Vegas and Emiliano Grillo. Being that it's match play, however, you can't take your foot off the accelerator.

Anirban Lahiri put up a brilliant effort to register his first points in two Presidents Cup appearances and keep the global team afloat in the ongoing tournament in Jersey.

The Americans need one point of the 12 that are available in singles to clinch the Cup on Sunday.

The Americans had a 11 1/2-2 1/2 points lead on the International Team heading into Saturday afternoons quartet of four-ball (select ball) matches. "To answer back in a similar form it gives me a lot of satisfaction, and hopefully the rest of us, myself included, can come out and do the same tomorrow".

Price's task has become harder with his top-ranked player, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, struggling to the point he was dropped for Saturday morning's foursomes.
