Charley Hoffman goes wild after pitch-in, accidentally smacks caddie in head

Presidents Cup- Preview Day 2

Anirban Lahiri was disqualified for one hole of the 2017 Presidents Cup after it dawned on officials that the India native had broken the Rules of Golf on the prior hole. Still, the USA leads 14.5 to 3.5 going into the 12 singles matches on Sunday and needs just one point for its seventh-straight victory at this event.

"I think all of us are going to go out there and try and play our best", Lahiri said.

With 15 1/2 points needed to win the Presidents Cup and the American team leading 14 1/2 to 3 1/2 though the first three days of competition, the International Team will need to win every one of the 12 singles matches on Sunday to wrest the Cup away from Team USA.

The International Team managed a half-point out of the four available in the morning session when the South African duo of Grace and Oosthuizen halved their match with Americans Thomas and Rickie Fowler.

It was a small consolation for an worldwide team battered into submission by the United States, who won six of eight matches yesterday, halved another and lost just their second match of the week.

Emotions run wild at team events like the Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup, and this week has been no different.

"I think it was just an oversight on his part", said global captain Nick Price.

Jason Day and Louis Oosthuizen fell 2-and-1 to world No.2 Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, despite being gifted a hole courtesy of a controversial ruling against Spieth to lead the Americans with four holes remaining. "The home team clawed back to all square with birdie wins by Hoffman at 9 and Chappell at 10 (11'11"), and then went 1 UP with Hoffman's par-saver at 13 from 11'11".

"Obviously it's been a tough week for the team, so we were trying our hearts out," Lahiri said.

Internationals' top-ranked player Hideki Matsuyama and Jhonattan Vegas shot out to a three-hole advantage early in the match only to be reeled in by FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger.

Hoffman won the hole with a par, and the United States never surrendered the lead from there.

Day's fellow Australian Marc Leishman and partner Branden Grace were dusted 3-and-2 by world No.1 Dustin Johnson and US Open champion Brooks Koepka.

"I don't think any of us have really focused much on the scoreboard until this afternoon, when we actually had a chance to finish it off", Spieth said.

Spieth and Reed, fresh off a 4 & 3 foursomes win over Day and Leishman, triumphed again in the afternoon despite Spieth's hotly debated disqualification from the 12th hole.

But the clutch shot wasn't even the best part.
