No team had ever won the Presidents Cup after trailing at the start of the final round. But the USA changed that on Sunday.
Tiger Woods and the United States celebrated yet another Presidents Cup triumph after rallying past the Internationals.
The United States wanted plenty of red on the leaderboard on the final day and they have it during the singles showdown.
The USA can maintain their stranglehold on the Presidents Cup, while the Internationals are on track for their first title since 1998.
After sitting out Saturday's action, Tiger Woods will resume his playing responsibilities as the USA eye an eighth consecutive trophy.
Just as the Internationals appeared set to create some significant breathing space, the USA mounted a late charge on Friday.
The International team – already leading – are projected to score another four points in Friday's second session.
Friday's format will turn to foursomes, with seven-time defending champions the United States trailing the Internationals 4-1 in Melbourne.
Defending champions the United States have work to do following Thursday's opener against the Internationals at Royal Melbourne.
Tiger Woods continues to purr on the opening day but the Internationals have the upper hand against the USA.
