GREENSBORO, Ga. - Ryan Benzel won the final three holes to earn an unlikely halve Sunday, and American club pros remained unbeaten on home soil with a 13½-12½ victory over Great Britain & Ireland in the PGA Cup.

Benzel, a club pro in Bothell, Wash., appeared headed for a loss until taking the last three holes to earn a half-point against English pro Paul Wesselingh. That was enough to give the United States a victory on The Oconee Course at Reynolds Plantation.

Chris Starkjohann and Chip Sullivan, who went 2-0 as partners on Saturday, each won their singles match for the United States.

The United States has a 15-5-3 lead in matches between club pros that date to 1973.
