ÉVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (July 6, 2018) - The United States lead after 8-4 after opening round mixed four-ball matches at the Arnold Palmer Cup at Evian Resort Golf Club. The United States claimed the day’s first five matches.

Play was interrupted for two hours with seven of the 12 matches on the course. When play resumed, Chandler Phillips and Lilia Vu started the Team USA charge with a 6&4 victory. The Internationals would move the score to 5-2 with a 3&2 Jiwon Jeon and Lorenzo Scalise victory and a 4&3 triumph by Thailand’s KK Limbhasut and Pimnipa Panthong. The two sides would split the next four matches before the USA’s Braden Thornberry clinched the final match with birdie on No. 18 and move the American lead to 8-4.

Two rounds of competition will be held tomorrow with mixed foursomes teeing off at 7:30 am and four-ball at 1:30 pm. Both rounds will commence off tees No. 1 and 10.
