Round 4 Foursome Pairings

The US team must feel like they've been kicked in the gut, being down 5-9. They need to run the tables this afternoon to get back even as they head into the singles. A split isn't good enough. Unless they do something spectacular in this session, they are in SERIOUS trouble!

In case you've forgotten, foursomes is the Americans' strong suit.
  • Match 15: Louis Oosthuizen/Adam Scott VS
    Dustin Johnson/Gary Woodland
  • Match 16: Marc Leishman/Abraham Ancer VS
    Justin Thomas/Rickie Fowler
  • Match 17: Sungjae Im/Cameron Smith VS
    Xander Schauffele/Patrick Cantlay
  • Match 18: Byeong-Hun An/Joaquin Niemann VS
    Matt Kuchar/Tony Finau
Some of these pairings are the same as yesterday's foursomes -- Oosthuizen/Scott, Leishman/Ancer and Im/Smith for the Internationals, and Schauffele/Cantlay for the US (they've played together all four sessions now).

Kuchar/Finau and Thomas/Fowler are Round 3 pairings who played well earlier today.

Interestingly, Johnson/Woodland was a fourball pairing in the first round. And An/Niemann is probably a product of Hadwin being under the weather and Matsuyama getting a rest for the singles.

While I was surprised yesterday when Tiger left himself out of the pairings, after seeing how cold the weather has turned I'm not surprised he's also skipping this session. He'll need to be rested if it's cold for the singles tomorrow.

Since I have to get an early start tomorrow morning, I won't be seeing the finish of this session or the matchups for tomorrow until the afternoon. So Saturday's post will be going up late afternoon.

And of course, GC's coverage of this session is going on right now!
