JERSEY CITY, N.J. — It didn't take long for the Americans to clinch their 10th Presidents Cup victory.

Daniel Berger earned at least a half point in his match versus Si Woo Kim when he went 3 up with three to play (he later won 2 and 1) to push the Americans' point total to the 15.5 threshold it needed to beat the International team at Liberty National.

The U.S. entered Sunday with a 14.5-3.5 lead, needing just one point to secure the victory. When it was all over, their margin was 19-11.

Kevin Chappell and Marc Leishman led off singles matches Sunday, and they both made pars on the 18th to halve the match and earn a half point per side.

Needing only a halve or a win to clinch, Berger, a Presidents Cup rookie, finished it. He was in the fourth pairing Sunday.
