United States pummel Internationals in march toward Presidents Cup

Former presidents Barack Obama George W. Bush and Bill Clinton attended the trophy presentation Thursday

Nick Price's worldwide team heads into Saturday's eight matches in search of a Presidents Cup miracle.

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.

And, finally, fellow rookie Kevin Kisner teamed with Phil Mickelson to claw out the day's final point for Stricker, a flag that just an hour earlier seemed improbable and likely put the finishing touches on an overmatched and seemingly out-of-answers worldwide team.

There are four fourball matches on Saturday before the 24 players go head-to-head in 12 singles matches on Sunday, with 15 1/2 points required for victory. "We had a tough match today, I thought it was playing hard today". "There's a long way to go". "It's unfortunate. I feel good that at least we won half a point".

It's tough to see where the global team pick their points up from.

Fistfights erupt in Uganda's parliament amid move to extend Museveni rule
But opposition politicians, rights activists and even some members of Museveni's party have criticized the measure. Lawmakers threw chairs, used microphone stands as makeshift weapons and brawled on top of the seats in the house.

"We're very comfortable around each other", Oosthuizen told Sky Sports.

"We're only 10 points through 30". "We are not laying down. These guys are going to come out fighting over the next two days and especially tomorrow".

Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman, United States, def. Charl Schwartzel and Anirban Lahiri, International, 6 and 5.

"Ever since I can remember, it was Tiger Woods dominating golf on TV", Reed said. "Looking back at the replay, I think we kind of nailed it, " said Mickelson, who has played all 12 Presidents Cups.

It looked a little awkward, though Mickelson did slightly better than when he cropped most of his face out of a selfie he took during the opening ceremony with the last three USA presidents.

Price could be fired over private jet use, Trump indicates
Trump's remarks were the latest example of the White House distancing itself from Price's actions. Asked if he has confidence in Price, Johnson went to speak, then stopped himself and walked away.

Nevertheless, further victories followed for the hosts, as world number one Dustin Johnson and partner Brooks Koepka beat Jhonattan Vegas and Adam Scott 3&2 before Kevin Kisner and Phil Mickelson finished 1-UP on Australians Marc Leishman and Jason Day.

"It was back and forth the whole day", said Day.

Recently-crowned FedEx Cup victor Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler overcame South African pair Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace 3 and 2, but with the three remaining contests close at that stage the worldwide side would have harboured hopes of reducing the deficit.

The Internationals troubled the scoreboard when Matsuyama and Adam Hadwin secured a half point by squaring their match with the powerful Reed/Spieth combination, but that's where it ended for the International side who will return to their Manhattan hotel in a state of shock, their tails wedged firmly between their legs and with the sound of overjoyed American crowds ringing in their ears. It was the first time in 10 years the worldwide did not win a match in a session.
