The Presidents Cup - Round Two

The U.S. Team opened an 8-2 lead Friday at the Presidents Cup, taking four of five four-ball matches against the Internationals with one halve.

The Americans were heavily favored in Vegas before this thing started, and it’s looking like those who wagered on the U.S. squad will be receiving a nice profit at week’s end.

We’re still not at the halfway point, however, with a full slate of foursomes and four-ball matches set for Saturday. Kicking things off in the morning group, here’s a look at current odds for the Saturday foursomes matches, courtesy of golfodds.com.

Jason Day/Marc Leishman (+130) vs. Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth (-150)

Adam Scott/Adam Hadwin (+150) vs. Dustin Johnson/Matt Kuchar (-180)

J. Vegas/Emiliano Grillo (+130) vs. Phil Mickelson/Kevin Kisner (-150)

Presidents Cup Tracker

UPDATE No. 13 (1:55 p.m.):Well look at this Matsuyama drains a 25-footer for birdie at the eighth to win the hole and that International team is now 2 up on Spieth and Reed.

This is the lead match and a huge tone-setter if the Internationals can pull off this upset.

UPDATE No. 12 (1:35 p.m.):The Internationals lead two matches, the U.S. lead two and one match is all square.

So this session is tight so far! The leads are mostly big actually, but if we were to end this session now, it would be tied.

UPDATE No. 11 (1:20 p.m.):Anirban Lahiri did not play the third hole in the penultimate match. Why? Check out below for explanation. Schwartzel managed to halve it by himself, but that team is still 2 down.

UPDATE No. 10 (1:10 p.m.):Boom! Koepka and DJ birdie the second to bring the final match back to All Square.

UPDATE No. 9 (12:50 p.m.):Jhonny Vegas! He runs in an 18-footer for birdie to win the hole and give the Internationals the early lead in the anchor match.

UPDATE No. 8 (12:45 p.m.):Hoffman can’t roll in a lengthy birdie putt, but he and Chappell win the opening hole anyway with a par.

UPDATE No. 7 (12:40 p.m.):Matt Kuchar and Daniel Berger may be out this session, but they are still getting in on the action as fans!

UPDATE No. 6 (12:35 p.m.):Fowler and Thomas have taken the lead in their match as Fowler buries a 16-footer for birdie to win the third. Both that young duo and the Spieth/Reed pair are up in their matches. AGAIN.

UPDATE No. 5 (12:11 p.m.):A 23-foot eagle putt from Patrick Reed at No. 2 wins that hole for he and Spieth in the opening four-ball match!

Oh yeah, it’s on!
