Capsules of Presidents Cup on the second day Friday

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Capsules from Friday’s foursomes matches at the President’s Cup at Royal Melbourne:

Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott, International, def. Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar, United States, 3 and 2.

Scott and Oosthuizen were 2-down after seven holes but won five holes from the eighth through 14th. The Americans didn’t win a hole after the seventh. Scott’s ninth appearance is the most of any player on the International side in Presidents Cup history. Scott moves into a tie with Vijay Singh for second-most career wins with 16, trailing only current captain Ernie Els’ 20th. Oosthuizen, Scott’s 15th different playing partner at the Presidents Cup, has nine wins in four Cup appearances.

Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay, United States, def. Adam Hadwin and Joaquin Niemann, International, 1-up.

Cantlay’s 14-foot birdie putt on the 18th gave the Americans the win. Neither team held more than a 1-up lead in the match. The Americans were 1-down but their late birdies on 15th and the last clinched the win at a time when the Americans were 6-1 on the tournament scoreboard. Hadwin gave the Internationals an early lead with an eight-foot birdie putt on the first.
