The United States won Day 2 4-1 – just like they did on Day 1 – and now have an unstoppable lead in eight Saturday tag teams, starting early in the morning with four fours.
These are the fours where the US has historically dominated the event. Based on their performance in the first two days of this year’s Presidents’ Cup, it is expected to continue into Saturday as Davis Love III’s team could very well take the trophy with a possible 7.5 out of 8 possible points in two sessions on Day 3.
The international team needs to find the spark just to keep a respectable week going, but the US is clearly trying to keep that from happening by rolling out Justin Thomas and Jordan Spit in fours (alternate shot) early. So far, the American duo have set a 2-0-0 record together and will take on Sungjae Im and Corey Conners in a Day 1 rematch.
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Saturday morning session is who is not playing. The dynamite pairing of Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantley is suspended, as are Billy Horschel and Kevin Kisner, for the Americans.
Behind the internationals are Christian Bezuidenhout and Mito Pereira, who scored half a point in four-ball on Friday. Taylor Pendrit and Sebastian Muñoz performed well on the second day and will join them on the bench. Captain Trevor Immelman’s team is hitting a wall and it will take a massive morning session if there is any hope of a historic comeback.
