Match of the Day ?


Americans Phil Mickelson and Woody Austin staged a dramatic rally over the closing holes in their foursomes match against Vijay Singh and native son Mike Weir Thursday at Royal Montreal Golf Club, and then extended a hand of concession to ensure that a hotly contested golf exhibition ended without a loser. The par putt that Singh sized up on the 18th hole was nearly four feet, but Mickelson and Austin, prompted by captain Jack Nicklaus, decided that he didn't need to putt out.

"There shouldn't have been a winner or a loser," Mickelson said after the tie that provided the International Team with its only source of scoring on the first day of the seventh Presidents Cup that the U.S. dominated on the way to a remarkable 5 1/2 to 1/2 lead. "Both sides played very good golf."

5-1/2 to 1/2 lead out of the starting gate with alternate shot is impressive.

Jack Nicklaus should be the captain of the Ryder Cup. Team USA plays very well for him.

Woody Austin made news again today when he tried to hit a submerged ball from a hazard. He swung, lost his balance after the follow-through, did a 180 and fell face-first into the water.

All he did after that was make three birdies in a row and he and Toms managed a half-point in their match.

Amazing. The Internationals came roaring back and the matches are now 7 - 5 with the US leading.

Woody was the player of the day for Team USA. His birdies on the last three holes were clutch. His partner was not Lefty but David Toms, who was just along the the ride.

Tiger and Furyk got smoked but Singh and Appleby were -11 for the 14 holes played.
