The atmosphere at Weston Golf & Country Club was tense as the final group on the course approached No. 18 green. Team Canada captain Javier Diaz and Colton Kalkanis went back and forth with their American counterparts Frank Szucs and Matthew Hardman all afternoon. After Team USA sent their chip past the hole, Diaz stepped up and sunk his final putt for par to pick up an all important full point for the Canadian side.
“That putt was clutch for our team,” said Diaz. “Colton and I played great together both days. We’re going into the final day with a shot at winning and if we all go out there and play our game tomorrow, I like our chances.”
The event concludes tomorrow with 14 singles matches. The first team to capture 14 ½ points will be awarded the North America Cup. Tee times will begin at 7 a.m. Spectators are encouraged to attend.
