ORLANDO, Fla. -- With only the slimmest chance of winning, International team captain Greg Norman loaded much of his heavy firepower near the top and middle of his Sunday singles lineup in the hopes of getting some early momentum started.
The Americans hold a 13-9 lead entering the dozen Sunday singles matches and no team that has trailed entering the final session has ever won the Presidents Cup.
U.S. captain Fred Couples placed many of his most experienced players at the end of the card, including Steve Stricker, the top-ranked player in the 24-man event at world No. 5, in the last match off the tee,
He will be proceeded in the penultimate pairing by former world No. 1 Tiger Woods, though by the time they play, the result of their matches may be close to moot.
The singles matches will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel starting at 6:30 p.m. ET Saturday night.
