CHARLOTT, North Carolina. Jordan Spieth, already this week’s standout player on the US Presidents Cup team, came out of Schneid on Sunday, earning his first singles win.
Entering Sunday’s singles at Quayle Hollow, Spieth posted a 0-6-1 singles record in both the Presidents’ and Ryder’s Cups. He admitted that he was nervous before the start of the match with Australian Cameron Davis, desperately wanting to break the losing streak.
Having lost to Davis earlier, Spit won five of the six holes around the turn, turning the match around to take a 4 and 3 win – the most lopsided of all 12 singles matches. The Americans won 17 ½ to 12 ½.
Full score of the Presidents Cup match
After four wins with Justin Thomas in a partner game, Spit became only the sixth player in Presidents Cup history to break a flawless 5-0 record in a week. He was the fourth American to accomplish this feat, and the first since Jim Furyk in 2011. Mark O’Meara and Tiger Woods also set perfect one-year records in the Presidents’ Cup.
“Me and Justin had an incredible time in a team environment,” Spit said, “and I was thrilled to finally be in the winners’ circle in a singles match for the first time.”
The rest of the team burst into applause.
“Thanks for that,” Spit said shyly. “Thank you, guys.”
Spit’s impressive week ended what was a walking stretch from the former world No. 1. His performance was at least somewhat reminiscent of Scotty Scheffler’s 2021 Ryder Cup breakout when he posted a 2-0-1 record (including a resounding win). over the hot John Rahm in singles), which he then used in his 2022 Player of the Year campaign.
Speth, however, hopes to draw on his own experience: he was one of America’s few bright spots in the 2014 Ryder Cup with a 2-1-1 score, and the following year he won his first two majors.
“I am very excited about the week that has been this week,” he said. “I thought that this week I played my best golf of the year and it was really great to play on a team with these guys.”
