DUBLIN, Ohio – What you ought to know going into Sunday’s conclusion of the Presidents Cup:

• The Americans were up 11 ½ to 6 ½ when the Saturday afternoon foursomes matches were suspended because of darkness. Just one of the five matches was completed, with the Americans winning it. Going into Sunday, the United States is up in one of the remaining foursomes matches with the Internationals up in two and the other match all square.

• No team has lost the Presidents Cup when taking a lead into singles.

• Saturday’s resumption of the suspended foursomes matches will begin at 7:35 a.m. with Golf Channel coming on at 7 a.m. to carry coverage. Singles play is expected to begin at 9:10 a.m. with NBC airing the singles matches on tape delay from noon to 6 p.m.

• The Americans won both sessions of fourballs this week, claiming a 7-3-1 advantage in the best-ball format. It marks the first time in 17 years the Americans have won the overall fourballs in a Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup.

Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar are 3-0 as partners, the only perfect tandem this week, but they trail in their suspended foursomes match. They’re 2 down with nine holes to play.
