  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES TODAY WON THE WORLD CUP FOR THE TENTH TIME IN 17 YEARS WITH A DAZZLING DISPLAY OF HIGH PRESSURE GOLF FROM LEE TREVINO AND ORVILLE MOODY.

    BLAZING AROUND THE FIRST NINE HOLES OF THE TOUGH SINGAPORE ISLAND CLUB BUKIT COURSE, THE AMERICANS QUICKLY OVERCOME A TWO-STROKE DEFICIT TO TAIWAN AND THEN PLAYED THRILLING SUB-PAR GOLF TO THROW OFF ALL CHALLENGERS.

    TREVINO, PUTTING MAGNIFICENTLY ON THE ROLLING GREENS, RAN IN SIX BIRDIES TO FINISH WITH A GREAT ROUND OF 65 AND TAKE THE INTERNATIONAL TROPHY FOR LOWEST INDIVIDUAL BY A SINGLE STROKE.

    THAT WINNING STROKE, A MAGNIFICENT 30 FOOT PUTT FROM THE BACK OF THE 18TH GREEN SAVED HIM FROM A PLAYOFF WITH ARGENTINA'S ROBERTO DE VINCENZO.

    THE AMERICANS FINISHED WITH A TOTAL OF 552. CROWD PLEASING CHALLENGES FROM TAIWAN AND UNHERALDED THAILAND FADED IN THE SEARING 86 (30 CENTIGRADE) TEMPERATURE.

    JAPAN FINISHED IN SECOND PLACE WITH 560 AND THE ARGENTINIANS THIRD WITH 561. THE TAIWAN TEAM FINISHED IN A TIE, FOR FOURTH AT 562 WITH THAILAND WHILE THE PHILIPPINES TOOK SIXTH PLACE WITH 565.

    HSIEH YUNG HO OF TAIWAN, TWO STROKES AHEAD OF THE FIELD LAST NIGHT, COULD ONLY MANAGE A ONE-OVER 72, AS NONE OF HIS PUTTS WOULD DROP IN, AND FINISHED IN A TIE FOR THIRD IN THE INDIVIDUAL STANDINGS WITH MOODY AND THAILAND'S TINY SUCHREE ONCHUM.
