America held a one-point lead going into the final day's 12 singles matches and maintained that advantage at the Jack Nicklaus Club in Incheon, South Korea.
Bill Haas, the son of captain Jay, scored the winning point by beating South Korean Bae Sang-moon, securing victory on the 18th hole of a tense finale to the competition. Jay Haas said he told his 33-year-old son: "Come on, win one for your mom, your mom deserves this."

Captain Haas added: "We put him out 12th and had no idea this was going to happen. Couldn't even have dreamt this."
Sang-moon needed to win the final hole to halve his match with Haas Jr, but conceded after following a poor chip into the 18th with a missed putt. San-moon will now begin two years national service.
