International Team in a better shape


The Arnold Palmer Cup
Evian Resort Golf Club

Team USA holds a 12.5-11.5 lead after the morning mixed foursomes matches, but  the Internationals who started trailing by four, claim the best part of the twelve foursomes.
First out this morning, the pair Jovan Rebula-Albane Valenzuela brought in a well deserved 4&2, a sweet revenge after their heavy loss (6&2) on Friday. The next two matches were all square before a suite of three American wins. On the board: USA 12, International 7.
The International team coaches were all around their players and it meant a lot. The Irish duo Mullarney-Ryan was to confirm the foreseen comeback of their side with birdies on Nos. 17 and 18 to win 1-up. The next three matches brought another three points in the International bag, the last morning match ending on a half.
Before the afternoon four-balls, there was only one point between the two teams, exactly the fight such a tournament deserves. PPH
