SNAPSHOT OF DAY FOUR OF THE PRESIDENTS CUP:

PLAYER OF THE DAY: Tiger Woods. Questions were asked about the playing captain's call to rest himself from day three but Woods came out firing on the final day to make an early statement that the US were on the march.

STAT OF THE DAY: Ernie Els' team became the first to lose the Presidents Cup after taking a lead into the final day.

TURNING POINT: American Tony Finau fighting back from four down to salvage half a point against Hideki Matsuyama broke the hearts of the Internationals.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We gave it a hell of a go and we came mightily close to winning and upsetting one of the greatest golf teams of all time," said losing International captain Ernie Els.

CUP SUMMARY: So close and yet so far. The Internationals' hopes of their first victory since 1998 fell short on the final day when they surrendered a 10-8 lead to fall to a 16-14 defeat. US captain Tiger Woods finished the tournament with three wins from his three matches, while Cup bad boy Patrick Reed overcame a drama-packed week to also secure a crucial first victory.
