Tom Kim and K.H. Lee lost 2 and 1, Sungjae Im and  Corey Conners lost 2 and 1, and Taylor Pendrith and Mito Pereira bogeyed their last hole to miss out on any points, going down by one hole.

The one shining light for the Internationals was the performance of Cam Davis and Si Woo Kim. The young pairing, both ranked outside the world’s top-60 golfers, stormed home to beat the world number one Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns.

The inexperienced pairing found themselves 3-down through seven holes, the Internationals looking down the barrel of a 5 – 0 thrashing. However, some exceptional iron pay from Davis combined with good putting from Kim saw the Internationals take advantage of a late stumble by Americans to run out 2&1 victors.
