Heavy rain and lightning caused the final day to be abandoned and the event was reduced to 54 holes. The leading 36 teams had played their third round on the River course while the others played on the Ocean course.[1]

The United States won their 13th Eisenhower Trophy, nine strokes ahead of Spain, who took the silver medal. Sweden took the bronze medal while Canada, Italy and Switzerland finished tied for fourth place. Ryan Moore had the best 54-hole aggregate of 204, 12 under par.[1]
