After Saturday's spirited comeback, the International squad trails the Americans 11-7 at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. The par-71, 7,571-yard track hosts the Wells Fargo Championship annually and rewards strong putters who also have the ability to scramble.

With that in mind, let's look forward to Sunday at the Presidents Cup, which features plenty of prop angles to attack on PrizePicks.

Below, I give out my five PrizePicks flex plays for the fifth round of the 2022 Presidents Cup. Using the five plays below, getting five-of-five correct registers a 10x payout, four-of-five correct registers a 2x payout and three-of-five correct registers a 0.4x payout.

Presidents Cup Round 4 PrizePicks Plays

Collin Morikawa Under 1 Match Points

Sunday features all single matches, including Collin Morikawa against Mito Pereira. More than anything else, this play is a fade of Morikawa, who has not been playing his sharpest golf this week.

This tournament has essentially turned into a putting competition because of both how the scoring works and the way the course plays and that's not ideal for Morikawa. On TOUR last season, he finished just 131st in SG: Putting and 94th in Scrambling.

This tournament is Morikawa's first career appearance at Quail Hollow Club and it has shown. While Pereira is not the world's strongest putter or scrambler, he finished better in both those categories than Morikawa last season.

Max Homa Over 0 Match Points

Max Homa will be squaring off against Joo-hyung "Tom" Kim. There is no denying that Kim has been one of the best golfers this week, which is why we are getting great value in this number.

While Kim has been on a tear, he now goes against arguably the hottest golfer on Earth. Entering this event, Homa had made 18 of his past 19 cuts with 10 top-20 finishes and two wins.

Kim has carried that momentum into this week and has won all three of the rounds he has partaken in. This domination makes sense considering he ended last season ranked 20th in SG: Putting and third in Scrambling.

Justin Thomas Over 1 Match Points

We are going to back another American in the Justin Thomas and Si Woo Kim matchup. Thomas has been incredible this week, winning all four rounds by at least two match points.

We know what we will get from Thomas, but how will Kim perform? He looked excellent in the first round, but did not look nearly as strong in the third or fourth.

I think the past two rounds are a better predictor of what we should expect from Kim on Sunday. On TOUR last season, Kim finished 177th in SG: Putting and 47th in Scrambling.

Meanwhile, Thomas finished higher in both of those categories and ended the season with a T5 finish at the TOUR Championship.

Patrick Cantlay Over 0.5 Match Points

The last American we are backing Sunday is Patrick Cantlay, who is set to square off against Adam Scott. I would imagine Scott just wants to get off this course as soon as possible considering he has shot a 70 or higher in each of his past 18 rounds at Quail Hollow (excluding this week's different scoring structure).

His previous lack of success at this course correlates to his inability to scramble, evidenced by his 133rd finish in Scrambling last season. Meanwhile, Cantlay finished last season 28th in SG: Putting and eighth in Scrambling.

Cantlay has won two of the three rounds he has partaken in, including the round one matchup against Scott when he and Xander Schauffele beat Scott/Matsuyama by six match points.

Cameron Young Under 0 Match Points

In our final play, we will be taking Sungjae Im over Cameron Young. This is not a fade of Young by any means as he continues to look like one of golf's brightest future stars.

However, Im has been a weapon on this course all week with some terrific work around the greens. On TOUR last season, Im finished 37th in SG: Putting and fifth in Scrambling.

While Young is also solid in those two categories, he is not nearly as strong as Im (at least not yet). On Sunday, I expect the more experienced Im to manage the course better and beat Young on/around the greens to grab a much needed point for the International squad.
