Olympic champion Xander Schauffele hit the wining shot as the United States retained golf's Presidents Cup in a resounding victory at Quail Hollow.

Schauffele saved par on the 18th hole against Canada's Corey Conners to secure a one-up victory which confirmed the US as winners.

The Americans had taken a four-point lead into the concluding singles matches and edged the final day 6.5 points to 5.5.

That left the final score in North Carolina 17.5 to 12.5.

Jordan Spieth - who finished the event with a perfect record of five wins from five - Tony Finau, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa and Collin Morikawa were also all victorious for the US.

Sam Burns and Hideki Matsuyama from Japan, a former Masters champion, tied.

Kim Si-woo of South Korea finished the Presidents Cup with an International-leading three points having beaten Justin Thomas in the singles.

The US have now won nine editions of the Presidents Cup in a row.

Both teams were impacted by players who have joined LIV Golf not being allowed to play, but it hit the International team particularly hard.

Four members of the original side dropped out and eight of the 12 players on the International team were making Presidents Cup debuts.
