DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Marc Leishman delivered one clutch putt and one perfect 7-iron to keep the International team in range at the Presidents Cup.
In the pivotal match of four games carried over to Saturday morning because of rain, Leishman and Angel Cabrera outlasted Brandt Snedeker and Webb Simpson for a 2-and-1 victory that gave the Internationals a 3-3 draw in the foursomes sessions.
It kept the American lead at one point, 6½-5½, going into a long day that featured 10 matches. And it was the first time since 2005 that the Internationals did not lose a foursomes session.
Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar polished off Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, 4 and 2, keeping that American tandem undefeated in both matches at soggy Muirfield Village. Kuchar won the Memorial in June, while Woods is a five-time winner at Muirfield Village.
Steve Stricker holed a 20-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole to thwart an International rally, as he and 20-year-old Jordan Spieth picked up a 2-and-1 win over Branden Grace and Richard Sterne. Stricker (46) and Spieth — the oldest and youngest players at this Presidents Cup — also improved to 2-0.
Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama also remained unbeaten. They were 5-up through 12 holes until Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson staged a rally with birdies on the next three holes. The next two holes were halved in pars, giving the Internationals a 2-and-1 win.
The big match, though, was Leishman and Cabrera.
