CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The day started out with memories of 2017 at Liberty National, where the Americans dominated so thoroughly they nearly clinched the Presidents Cup on Saturday.

By the time 20-year-old Tom Kim slammed his cap to the ground in a wild celebration, and Cameron Davis finished with three straight birdies for another comeback win, all anyone could think about was the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah.

The Americans still lead by four. It just felt much closer.

Smith wins in 2nd start with LIV Golf

SUGAR GROVE, Ill. (AP) British Open champion Cameron Smith made his decision to leave the PGA Tour for LIV Golf pay off Sunday when he closed with a 3-under 69 for a three-shot victory in the LIV Golf Invitational-Chicago.

Smith was only briefly threatened in the third and final round. One of the key moments was a 10-foot par putt on the 13th hole, and neither Dustin Johnson nor Peter Uihlein could do enough to catch him. Read More...

Europe's Donald has plan for beating US

GUIDONIA MONTECELIO, Italy (AP) Rory McIlroy likened it to landing in a "jungle" when his drives veered off line. Europe captain Luke Donald pointed to the thickness of the grass blades. U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick said the rough was simply "penal."

If there was one major takeaway from the just-concluded Italian Open at the Marco Simone club outside Rome that will host next year's Ryder Cup, it was that the course is being set up to reward accurate tee shots with narrow fairways surrounded by nasty rough and even higher grass beyond. Read More...
