International players have something to do, but eight big points are about to grab Saturday at the Quail Hollow Club.
It’s a pivotal day in the 14th Presidents Cup as the US, who are leading 8-2 after two days, can technically put that thing away with a dominant performance on Saturday. Meanwhile, it is a perfect opportunity for foreigners to flip the whole action.
The US won the first session 4-1 and the second 4-1 as well, but anything can happen with eight games scheduled for the second-to-last day. They will play four four-ball (alternate shot) matches in the morning and four four-ball matches (best ball) in the afternoon, which will set the stage for 12 singles matches on Sunday to determine who will win the Presidents Cup.
Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas will team up again on Saturday morning. They are 2-0 this week. Another 2-0 American duo, Xander Shaveli and Patrick Cantlay, sit in the quartet session.
The United States leads the 11-1-1 series all-time. The United States needs 15 points to hold the cup and 15.5 points to win.
The full matches of the four-session session are below, with the first game starting at 7:12 a.m. ET. Matches will be announced for the afternoon session on Saturday morning. The first hour of television will be 7-8 a.m. ET on the Golf Channel, and NBC will handle the bulk of the coverage from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
