CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The usual suspects for the Americans got the job done in convincing fashion on Friday at the 2022 Presidents Cup, but the Internationals didn’t go down without a fight.
Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas continued their impressive partnership with a 2-and-1 win over Australians Adam Scott and Cam Davis to give the Americans the first point of the day at Quail Hollow Club. And speaking of unbeatable duos, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele won yet again on Friday, taking down Hideki Matsuyama and Tom Kim, 3 and 2.
They weren’t wins, but the International pairings of Sungjae Im-Sebastian Munoz and Mito Pereira-Christiaan Bezuidenhout picked up a clutch point with a pair of ties in the second and third matches of the day, while Max Homa and Billy Horschel sealed the deal on the 18th for the Americans to win the session, 4-1, and extend their overall lead to 8-2.
Here’s a breakdown of each match on Day 2 at the 2022 Presidents Cup.
