Cabrera beats Phil 1 up. Cabrera half-heartedly raises arms. Final #PresCup score: U.S. 18.5, International 15.5.— Brian Wacker (@pgatour_brianw) October 6, 2013
That's all for today. A surprisingly smooth finish to a rain-soaked weekend at Muirfield Village.
Final Score: United States Team 18.5 - International Team 15.5
For the final hole of the day, Mickelson and Cabrera have each hit nice tee shots down the 18th fairway.

Updated score with one match remaining: United States Team 18.5 - International Team 14.5
Two matches still wrapping up before we can put this one in the books.
Webb Simpson is one up on Louis Oosthuizen as the pair make their way down the 18th.
Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson and Angel Cabrera are all square through 17. Since the championship has already been decided, they'd be allowed to play to a draw—no playoff necessary.

Great lag. It's conceded. And the U.S. wins it!!— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
Tiger for the win...— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
Sterne lags it to 6 feet. It's a poor effort and Tiger has 2 putts for the cup. Finally.— ByTheMin Golf (@ByTheMinGolf) October 6, 2013
Sterne outside of Woods. Tiger clinched the final point against Y.E. Yang at Harding Park in 2009, and in 2011 against Baddeley. 3 in a row?— TigerWoodsQuestfor19 (@TigerQuestfor19) October 6, 2013
Tiger and Sterne both on the green. Sterne maybe 60 feet, Tiger 40. A pair of two-putts to clinch it all.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
Sterne's on the green but has a looooong putt for par. Tiger looks like he's in good shape.
Tiger is half a club short but on green. Meanwhile Simpson has missed the kick in birdie and remains 1 up going to 17 tee. Pity.— ByTheMin Golf (@ByTheMinGolf) October 6, 2013
Oh, no! Due to inclement weather, the Kenny G concert is canceled. So is the closing ceremony! I'm sure fans are all torn up.— Stephanie Wei (@StephanieWei) October 6, 2013
