HEXHAM, England (AP) — Dan Greenwood of England holed a 5-foot par putt on the 18th hole Sunday as Great Britain & Ireland rallied in singles to end the PGA Cup in a tie. The trophy still goes home with the Americans because they were the defending champion.

Greenwood's putt gave him a 1-up win over Matt Dobyns.

GB&I trailed by five points going into the final day at Slaley Hall. It won seven of the 10 singles matches and halved one to make up the deficit and forge only the fourth draw in 26 matches between club professionals.

The Americans still have a 17-5-4 record in the PGA Cup, and they have not lost it since 2005.
