The Internationals have work to do, but eight crucial points are up for grabs on Saturday at Quail Hollow Club.
It’s a pivotal day in this 14th Presidents Cup, as the U.S., holding a commanding 8-2 lead after two days, can technically put this thing away with a dominating performance on Saturday. Meanwhile, it’s the perfect opportunity for the Internationals to flip the entire event.
The U.S. won the first session 4-1 and the second 4-1 as well, but anything can happen with eight matches slated for the second-to-last day. They’ll play four foursomes matches (alternate shot) in the morning and four fourballs matches (best ball) in the afternoon, which will set the stage for 12 singles matches on Sunday to decide who wins the Presidents Cup.
Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas will team up again on Saturday morning. They are 2-0 this week. The other 2-0 U.S. duo, Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay, are sitting the foursomes session.
The U.S. leads the all-time series 11-1-1. The U.S. needs 15 points to retain the Cup and 15.5 to win.
The complete matchups for the foursomes session are below, with the first match beginning at 7:12 a.m. ET. Matchups for the afternoon session will be announced on Saturday morning. The first hour of the TV broadcast will be 7-8 a.m. ET on Golf Channel, and NBC will handle the bulk of the coverage from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
