Price hopeful of Presidents Cup comeback


United States 3½, worldwide 1½.

After a squared front nine, World No.1 Dustin Johnson turned the screws on the pairing of Adam Scott and Jhonattan Vegas with unanswered birdies at the 12, 15 and 16 to claim a 3&2 victory alongside US Open champion and great mate, Brooks Koepka.

Phil Mickelson and Kevin Kisner rehearsed the dance from "Three Amigos". Here are the matches that'll take place in the early session, as well as look back at a dominant Friday for the United States and what should be another intriguing early session on Saturday.

Price was not about to give up, hopeful of gaining some momentum in the morning and riding it into the afternoon ahead of the 12 singles matches on the final day.

"I'm pumped that we took that team down", Thomas said of Grace and Oosthuizen, who were undefeated in five team matches dating to the '15 Presidents Cup. "There's a long way to go".

"I've been on some pretty special teams".

"This is a tough American team". "It's going to be cold tomorrow".

However, the first point of the day for the Americans came courtesy of Cup rookies Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell, who responded to Stricker's call up by combining brilliantly to dispose of Anirban Lahiri and Charl Schwartzel 6&5. "I didn't know what I was missing, " said Hoffman.

"Back nine, I didn't play very well at all", Matsuyama said on Friday.

Phil Mickelson and Kevin Kisner, United States, def. Jason Day and Marc Leishman, International, 1 up.

Scott continues to cement an unwanted record of most matches lost at the Presidents Cup, with 20.

"We've got to just keep our heads up and try to inch our way at points", Day said of the task facing the Internationals on Saturday. "This team is a unique team from any in the past in that the talent level is high or higher than we've ever had, and the camaraderie amongst each other on and off the course is a whole different environment".

The International Team managed a half-point out of the four available in the morning session when the South African duo of Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen halved their match with Americans Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler.

The only morsel scored by the Internationals was the half-point earned by Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Hadwin who squared their match against Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.

The International team, who won at Royal Melbourne in 1998 and secured a tie at Fancourt in 2003 but have lost the other nine matches, look to be heading for a heavy defeat after making the U.S. work hard for their win in 2015. "I think every one of my teammates feel the same way; that there's still a chance".
