Presidents Cup: Team USA continues dominant run

Presidents Cup: Team USA continues dominant run Presidents Cup: Team USA continues dominant run

The USA are on course to win a seventh consecutive Presidents Cup after dominating Friday's fourballs to move into an 8-2 lead at Liberty National.

The United States seized an astonishing six-point lead after two days of the biennial match play tournament against the Internationals. They are back together again Thursday for their Presidents Cup foursomes match against Emiliano Grillo and So Woo Kim.

Hadwin's grit while paired with a fraught Hideki Matsuyama earned the Internationals a half-point Friday, and captain Nick Price was smart to try to find a spot for the Canadian Saturday morning. Spieth and Reed won No. 12 with a birdie to move 4-up, and the pair won the 14th to close out the match 5 and 4.

Lahiri and South African partner Schwartzel absorbed the worst beating as Presidents Cup rookies Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell administered a 6&5 thrashing.

World Number 1 Johnson caught fire on the back 9 and wrapped up the match for the US on the 16th winning 3 & 2.

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas then delivered a stinging 3 & 2 victory over the worldwide powerhouse duo of Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace.

The final match up of the day featured Australians Jason Day and Marc Leishman against the American team's Phil Mickelson and Kevin Kisner, in what turned out to be a closely-fought battle right to the final hole.

Grace will play with Leishman against Johnson and US Open champion Brooks Koepka in the anchor match.

The American pairing claimed their second victory in successive days in New Jersey to overcome the previously undefeated global duo.

Hoffman and Chappell, who sat out Thursday's opening foursomes, were 3-UP after four holes before birdies at the eighth and ninth saw them hit the turn with a five-hole advantage. Saturday's schedule will offer four foursomes matches in the morning and four four-ball matches in the afternoon.

Things are getting out of hand at the 2017 Presidents Cup.

The U.S. team is now taking a 5-wood to the worldwide squad at the Presidents Cup, but it hasn't been without a spot of controversy thanks to golf's head-scratching rule book. "We took it seriously today like we do every match, but it was a little bit more fun than yesterday's victory".

The Americans took an early lead, but the global pairing were not giving up, squaring the match up before holding a one-up lead late on. Lahiri and Schwartzel won only one hole when both players stuffed tee shots on the par-3 10th to 3 feet.

A series of errors left the match all square going into the 18th hole, where Mickelson missed a short putt, leaving both teams with half a point. On Day 1, Thomas - a five-time victor on the PGA Tour this season and the FedExCup champion - admitted to being nervous, but by the time he and partner Rickie Fowler wrapped up their match he'd emerged as the team's emotional spark.
