DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Capsules of the Sunday matches at the Presidents Cup:

FOURSOMES (United States 3½, International 1½)

Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson, United States, def. Richard Sterne and Marc Leishman, International, 4 and 3.

The Internationals jumped out to a 2-up lead with a birdie on the sixth hole, and they missed a big opportunity to go 3 up on the par-5 seventh. Dufner set up Johnson for birdie on the par-3 eighth, and that sent them on their way. They birdied the ninth to square the match, took their first lead with a birdie on the par-5 11th and seized control when the Internationals bogeyed the 13th. Right when it looked as if none of the foursomes matches would end Saturday night, Johnson holed out from 115 yards on the 15th hole for an eagle and a 4-and-3 victory. It was the only match to finish Saturday night.
