Golf - US on brink of crushing Presidents Cup victory

- The United States are one match win away from an epic Presidents Cup triumph, with only Internationals Anirban Lahiri and Kim Si-Woo preventing them from an unprecedented Saturday celebration. Lahiri and Kim's 1-up win over Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell was the only thing stopping the mighty Americans from becoming the first team to clinch the Cup before Sunday's 12 singles matches even start. It was a small consolation for an International team battered into submission by the United States, who won six of eight matches, halved another and lost just their second match of the week. When the dust settled at Liberty National Golf Club, the United States led 14.5 to 3.5 points. "It's not over yet," US captain Steve Stricker said. "We have to go out and still take care of business."
