The USA has the 2011 Presidents Cup in its sights, heading into Sunday with a four-point advantage after a solid three days of work. After nearly sweeping the Saturday morning matches in Australia, the US took a step back, dropping three of five matches to the International side in the four ball -- or best ball -- matches in the afternoon. Even still, the American side is up 13-9 with all 12 players from each side set to take the course on Sunday.
The Saturday afternoon matches were close throughout, with the largest margins of victory 2&1. Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel opened the action strong for the International side, beating Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson in the opening match, 2&1. After notching a win in the morning, Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson weren't so lucky in the afternoon, falling to Anthony Kim and Y.E. Yang, 1-up. Geoff Oglivy and K.J. Choi also secured a 1-0 win for the International team.
The USA's first win of the afternoon session came in the second-to-last match, thanks to a 2&1 victory from Hunter Mahan and Bill Haas. In the final match of the day, Jim Furyk and Nick Watney beat Adam Scott and Ernie Els, 1-up.
