A brief look at the Presidents Cup on Sunday at Muirfield Village:

WINNER: United States 18 1/2, International 15 1/2.

SERIES: United States leads, 8-1-1.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Tiger Woods went 4-1 and delivered the clinching point with a 1-up win over Richard Sterne.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Graham DeLaet and Jordan Spieth halved their opening eight holes and no one had the lead for more than three holes. Canada's DeLaet ended the match by holing a bunker shot for birdie on the 18th hole with Spieth facing a 15-foot birdie putt.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Phil Mickelson hooked a 7-iron around a tree from 190 yards to about 10 feet on the 18th hole, setting up Keegan Bradley for a birdie putt that allowed them to halve their foursomes match Sunday morning against DeLaet and Jason Day.

KEY STATISTIC: The International team won the singles session 7 1/2-4 1/2, its largest margin in that format.

NOTEWORTHY: Fred Couples became the first captain to win the Presidents Cup three times.

QUOTEWORTHY: ''We're a real hodge-podge of a team that came together from four corners of the planet, and they gave the might of America a run for their money.'' - International captain Nick Price.

NEXT TIME: South Korea in 2015.
