Cheat Sheet: What you need to know Sunday in golf

August 17, 2013

__Ugh. America.__It's not been a good week golf-wise for the United States of America. For the first time in the 117-year history of the U.S. Amateur, the final match will not feature an American. The two remaining competitors, England's Matt Fitzpatrick and Australia's Oliver Goss, knocked out a pair of them in the quarterfinals. Meanwhile, in the Solheim Cup, barring an extremely poor Sunday singles performance, Europe is primed to make 2013 the first time in the history of that competition that it captures the trophy on American soil.

__Tight at the top__Patrick Reed and his wife-caddie are inching closer to their first PGA Tour win at the Wyndham Championship, but at they're still in for a fight. After leading most of Saturday, Reed dropped a shot on his 54th hole and dropped back to a two-way tie for the lead with John Huh at ten under. And they're not the only ones in with a chance. Former Masters Champ Zach Johnson is one back and hunting for his first win of the year, tied with, among others, Jordan Spieth -- the man who beat him in a playoff at the John Deere.
