The Americans led Europe 7 1/2 to 4 1/2 going into the Tuesday singles matches. As the defending champions, the U.S. needed 12 points to retain, while Europe needed 12 1/2. Michael Thorbjornsen's 2-up win in the eighth Singles Match on Tuesday picked up the 12th point. Rachel Heck then halved her match with Annabell Fuller to clinch the outright win.

Earlier, in the Monday Morning Foursomes, the U.S. picked up wins from Canon Claycomb and Ricky Castillo (4&3), Lucy Li and Erica Shepherd (5&3), and finally William Moll and Cole Ponich (2-up). Later, in the Monday Afternoon Fourballs, the Americans got victories from William Moll and Rachel Heck (2&1), Cole Ponich and Alexa Pano (2&1), and Canon Claycomb and Erica Shepherd (5&3).

That led to more American wins in the Tuesday Singles matches: Lucy Li (4&3), Yealimi Noh (3&2), Ricky Castillo (3&1) and Thorbjornsen (2-up).
