WALTON-ON-THE-HILL, England – The United States and Europe are knotted up at 10 apiece at the Palmer Cup at Walton Heath Golf Club. It marks the first time the two sides were tied entering the final round since 2005 at Whistling Straits.

Trey Mullinax won the opening match of the day, downing Thomas Detry, 3 and 1, to pull the United States even in the team standings. The American won the second but dropped the fourth to keep the match all square. He would win three straight beginning at No. 5 but Detry responded by claiming the next two. Mullinax would push the lead back to 2-up at No. 10. A Detry birdie at No. 12 cut the lead to 1-up. A birdie by Mullinax at No. 15 pushed the lead to 2-up and he closed the match with a par at No. 17.

Ollie Schniederjans pushed Team USA ahead with a 3 and 1 result over Pep Angles. The two halved the first hole before Schniederjans won the next three to build a lead he would not relinquish. Angles was able to cut the lead to 2-down on four occasions but conceded No. 17 to end the match.

The American winning streak extended to three matches when Robby Shelton defeated Jon Rahm, 1-up. Rahm claimed the first hole with birdie and led most of the match. His lead moved to 2-up thru No. 4 before Shelton evened the match with back-to-back birdies at Nos. 7 and 8. Rahm would reassert control taking the 12th and 13th. Shelton closed the match by winning the final three holes.

Bryson Dechambeau claimed another for the U.S., beating Louis Tomlinson, 5 and 4. Dechambeau won the first but lost the second before taking Nos. 4 and 5. Tomlinson cut the lead to 1-up after Dechambeau conceded the ninth. Dechambeau ended the match with a four-hole winning streak, which included three-straight birdies to close out.

Ricardo Gouveia ended the American winning streak when he beat Brandon Hagy, 1-up. Gouveia won the first hole and held that lead thru four holes. Hagy took a 3-up lead after winning Nos. 7, 9 and 10. Gouveia cut it back to 2-down thru 11 and then claimed the final three holes for the win.



Europe won its second match of the day with a James Ross 4 and 2 decision against Stewart Jolly. The pair traded birdies at Nos. 2 and 3 to stay all square and traded holes again at Nos. 6 and 7. Ross took control of the match with a four-hole winning streak that included three birdies for a 4-up lead thru 11. Jolly cut the lead in half by taking Nos. 12 and 14 before Ross claimed 15 and 16 for victory.

Sweden’s Erik Oja and Wyndham Clark halved their match. Clark won the first hole. Oja squared the match thru 3 and led thru 5. Clark evened the standing by winning No. 7 but fell back behind after a bogey at No. 8. Clark moved the match back to all square thru 13 and neither player managed to win a hole for the remainder of the match.

Grant Forrest pulled Europe even in the team standings with a 3 and 2 victory over Jack Maguire.  Forrest won the first two holes and led throughout. He extended his lead to 5-up thru 9. Maguire battled back by winning four-straight - including three with birdie - to trail 1-down thru 13. Forrest responded by claiming two straight to move back to 3-up.

The final two matches were halved. Team USA’s Anthony Maccaglia and Paul Dunne finished all square. Dunne won the first hole by concession but dropped the third. Maccaglia won the fifth and held the lead for the next nine holes. He extended the lead to 2-up on two occasions but Dunne evened the standing by winning Nos. 13 and 14. Maccaglia moved back into the lead after Dunne conceded No. 15 but Dunne halved the match with a birdie at No. 18.

Jack McDonald and Rico Hoey also tied in a match that neither led by more than 1-up. McDonald went 1-up after both the the second and fifth holes. Hoey held his only lead after winning with birdie at No. 8. McDonald held leads holes 10-12, No. 15 and again at No. 17. Hoey halved the match by winning No. 18.
