Despite his strong showing on Friday, the national golfer was not considered by captain Trevor Immelman for any of the eight duels scheduled today.
Despite the good performances he achieved on Friday Myth Pereira with South African Christiaan Bezuidenhout, with whom he saved a meritorious draw against locals Kevin Kisner and Cameron Young, captain Trevor Immelman has ruled out the Chilean from today’s rounds of the Presidents Cup in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The decision is questionable given that the Pirque native was one of the few not to lose in the contest so far, in which the United States largely dominates the international team.
During the Saturday morning session, which took the form of quartet (alternate launches of the pairs) results were much more consistent since two victories were shared by side, which were that of Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama over the locals Cameron Young and Collin Morikawa and that of the international duo composed of KH Lee and Tom Kim against Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns.
While the Americans added thanks to the triumphs of Tony Finau and Max Homa, who beat Si Woo Kim and Cam Davis, and Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, who beat Sungjae Im and Corey Conners.
In the afternoon, when Mito was to return to court in the form of four balls (the best ball of the pair), captain Immelman decided otherwise and aligned Si Woo Kim with Tom Kim; Hideki Matsuyama versus Taylor Pendrith; Sungjae Im with Sebastián Muñoz and Adam Scott with Cam Davis.
The action continues tomorrow, with the 12 singles duels that will define the Presidents Cup champion where the United States won 11 of the 13 versions, while in one they were tied and the rest went to the international team.
