Round 2 Foursome Pairings

The Internationals got their Presidents Cup off to a great start. (I told you not to underestimate them!) But today is the Americans' strong suit, foursomes (or alternate shot).
  • Match 6: Louis Oosthuizen/Adam Scott VS
    Dustin Johnson/Matt Kuchar
  • Match 7: Adam Hadwin/Joaquin Niemann VS
    Xander Schauffele/Patrick Cantlay
  • Match 8: Marc Leishman/Abraham Ancer VS
    Webb Simpson/Patrick Reed
  • Match 9: Byeong-Hun An/Hideki Matsuyama VS
    Justin Thomas/Tiger Woods
  • Match 10: Sungjae Im/Cameron Smith VS
    Gary Woodland/Rickie Fowler
Everyone on Team USA has now played, and only Haotong Li has not played for the Internationals.

I still believe Tiger had no intention of playing the foursomes before the team's poor showing in Round 1 sort of forced his hand. However, with only one session each day and the nice weather, I don't see this causing any problems for his back. (Assuming he gets up feeling good for Round 2, that is. He may have put himself later in the day as a precaution.)

Round 2 is the critical round for the Internationals. As I said, this is traditionally the strongest format for Team USA. If Ernie's team can stretch their lead or even just tie this round, you have to toss out all the underdog talk and seriously consider their chances to win the Cup.

GC's coverage begins tonight at 7pm ET.
