DUBLIN, Ohio – Neither captain at the Presidents Cup felt concerned enough to dramatically alter their lineups following Thursday’s fourball play, which the U.S. won 3 ½ to 2 ½.
International captain Nick Price sent out the same six teams for Friday’s foursomes play as he did on Day 1, and U.S. captain Fred Couples altered just two of his groups.
“They have played three days now, so to split them up or start changing things around, I don't think would be a wise move now, especially after we had that nice momentum, that bit of momentum on the back nine today,” Price said.
Couples split up Haas and Simpson, who halved their match against Scott and Matsuyama, and Mahan and Snedeker, who lost to Day and DeLaet on Thursday.
“We changed a couple teams, and to be honest, once you start changing more than one team, then it becomes a whole mix match of everybody,” Couples said.
