Anirban Lahiri and Si Woo Kim win their Saturday fourball match, Lahiri registers his first win at the Presidents Cup

US Team get a whiff of the title with a daunting 14.5 - 3.5 lead over the International Team

India's Anirban Lahiri registered his first win at the Presidents Cup on Saturday when he and his Korean partner Si Woo Kim won their fourball match against Americans Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman with a 1 UP scoreline.

Lahiri and Kim's win turned out to be the only bright spot for the International Team on Saturday as the visitors lost six other matches and halved one with the US.

The US Team is now within one point of retaining the Presidents Cup as they have taken a daunting lead of 14.5 - 3.5 against the Internationals.

Out of the four foursome matches played on Saturday, the US won three while the two teams halved the fourth.

Out of the four fourball matches played on Day 3 of the event, the US won three and the Internationals won one.

The International Team has won only two matches in the four sessions played so far.

For Anirban, Saturday's win was a personal milestone, as it was his first at the biennial event. He had lost his four previous matches at the event including a fourball match on Friday.
