Darkness has fallen on the Presidents Cup proceedings at Muirfield Village, bringing a long Day 3 to a close.
With four matches still to be completed in Session Four, the United States holds a commanding 11.5 to 6.5 lead in the tournament.
The day started early with the conclusion of Friday's foursomes, where each team each gained three points. The United States team dominated the Saturday fourball session, winning four of five matches, before the Internationals stormed back with a strong start in the afternoon foursome play.
Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner are the only group to have completed that round, picking up another win for the Americans and moving them just six points away from a tournament victory.
The forecast for Sunday is ominous once again, so the golfers will be back on the course early.
The start time for the conclusion of the foursome sessions is 7:35 a.m. ET, while Sunday's scheduled singles matches will get underway at 9.
