DUBLIN, Ohio >> The Americans are assured of being in the lead going into the final round of the rain-plagued Presidents Cup.

Zach Johnson holed out from the 15th fairway for eagle to complete a swift turnaround and give the Americans yet another point. That was the only foursomes match that finished before it became too dark to continue Saturday at Muirfield Village.

But this much was clear — the Americans are in control and have been the whole way.

Another rain delay kept the matches from finishing for a second straight day, this time more because of time needed to drain the golf course. The Americans had an 11 1/2 -6 1/2 lead with four matches unfinished. The Internationals were up in two of them, the Americans led another and one was all square.
