The US on Sunday won their sixth Presidents Cup in a row by edging out the International team 15.5-14.5 in a day of high drama and emotion.
Bill Haas brought tears to the eyes of his father, US captain Jay Haas, when he closed out the slender victory on the 18th hole of a nail-biting final singles match, beating hometown hero Bae Sang-Moon at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Incheon, South Korea.
Fighting back his emotions, Haas senior said: “Yeah, I don’t know if I’m going to get through this. I can’t,” and then burst into tears, his voice breaking. Before Bill played 17, and I said, ‘Come on, Bill, win one for your mom here. Your mom deserves this’.
