Incheon: Anirban Lahiri will go up against Chris Kirk of the US in the singles match on the final day of the Presidents Cup, which hangs in balance at 9 to 8 for the Americans, who have lost only once in previous 10 editions.

Lahiri, ranked 39th in the world, is 12 places behind Kirk, who has won once on the PGA Tour this season at the Colonial, while Lahiri has won twice this season in events co-sanctioned by European and Asian Tours at Malaysian Open and Hero Indian Open.

Kirk, who failed to make the Tour Championships this year, has four wins on PGA Tour, the first coming in 2011, after two wins on Web.Com Tour in 2010.

Lahiri, who has only made the PGA card for 2016, has seven Asian Tour titles of which two have been co-sanctioned with Europe.

The much-awaited Jordan Spieth-Jason Day clash will not happen as the World No. 1 meets Marc Leishman and Day takes on Zach Johnson. Local hero Sangmoon Bae will take on Bill Haas in the final singles at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club.
