The putt rolled well past the hole and - because the Americans already had conceded Day's birdie-3 for that hole - Spieth went over to pick up Oosthuizen's ball. The International team birdied the tough 10th hole and took the lead for the first time when the Americans ran into trouble in the trees.
"It was back and forth the whole day", said Day. "It was really hard".
That's why I picked this one, the fourth match, where Berger should bring some fire and passion.
"It's nice to see that he got a little redemption".
He has played with Tiger Woods and Ernie Els of South Africa, assistant captains on the US and worldwide teams, since his election.

In an odd way, Lahiri and Kim faced pressure Saturday.
The International Team managed a half-point out of the four available in the morning session when the South African duo of Grace and Oosthuizen halved their match with Americans Thomas and Rickie Fowler.
Hideki Matsuyama, who didn't have a week commensurate with his world ranking, going 1-2-1, went out third in singles Sunday and handed Thomas his only loss of the week. Otherwise, not one of the singles matches - normally the most dramatic phase of worldwide team play - would have mattered at all.
"I thought it was a great thrill", Stricker said. He just (could not) believe that he missed that putt yesterday.
"Both of us were out there fighting".
"As we know, the Aussies show up here in men's clothes, women's clothes and everything in between; they are going to be nuts there and they are going to really try and make a difference in that event".
"I think the Americans have done it all week". They won the first three.
"They have a support system amongst each other where they love competing against each other, love beating each other, but are generally happy for each other's success and that leads to a very positive, uplifting energy in the team".
Chappell will take on Leishman in the first match of the day at 12:04 p.m., while Hoffman will face Day at 12:15 p.m.in the second match.
They were all square heading into the hole.
"In alternate shot, in these conditions, not to make a bogey and for us to just win 1 up, that's a heck of a battle that we had with those guys", Kuchar said. Lahiri chipped to 3 feet for the winning par. Oosthuizen's eagle putt raced by the hole, and with the crowd urging it to go in the water, Spieth scooped up the moving ball to quiet the crowd.
"I think to put pairings together with a very diverse group as we have, is our challenge". All this while, Lahiri's ball was marked four feet five inches from the hole.
"They are going to go play for their pride, they are going to play for themselves, they are going to play for the team and they are going to play for us".
Lahiri and partner South African Charl Schwartzel absorbed the worst beating as Presidents Cup rookies Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell administered a 6&5 thrashing to collect the first USA point of the day.
