Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are the dynamic duo that keep on giving. They beat Adam Scott and Cam Davis 2 and 1 with the help of a close ace from Thomas and a clutch putt on the 15th hole from Spieth that clinched at least a half point.

Sam Burns drained an 80-foot eagle putt in the seventh, but Sungjae Im and Sebastian Munoz were able to fire back from down two with six holes to go.

Munoz birdied on 13, while Scottie Scheffler and Burns both bogeyed 17 to tie the game heading for 18. Im and Scheffler both parried to halve the game.

Neither Kevin Kisner and Cameron Young nor Mito Pereira and Christiaan Bezuidenhout could surpass a single lead in their match which was halved.

Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele picked up another big win, 3-2 over 20-year-old Hideki Matsuyama and Tom Kim. This American pair beat Matsuyama and Adam Scott 6 and 5 yesterday. Together they have five consecutive match play victories. They went 2-0 at last year’s Ryder Cup.

The Internationals hoped the final couple of the day, Corey Conners and Taylor Pendrith, could get them out of the gutter against Max Homa and Billy Horschel. After going two-10, they won two of the next three holes to tie the game.

Pairs tied the next four holes, but Homa had two dominant final holes. His birdie at 17 clinched a half point, and after Pendrith birdied at 18, Homa responded with a birdie of his own, giving the United States the full point.

Americans need 7.5 points to retain the cup they have won eight times in a row. There will be four fourball matches and four foursome matches tomorrow, followed by 12 singles matches on Sunday.

Simply put, the Internationals need a miracle.
