Thursday's Foursomes

TIM CLARK
MIKE WEIR ANTHONY KIM
PHIL MICKELSON
Match time: 3:10 p.m. ET; 12:10 p.m. (local)
Presidents Cup records: Mike Weir (11-7-1 overall, 3-4-1 Foursomes); Tim Clark (4-5-1, 1-3-0); Phil Mickelson (11-13-9 overall, 5-6-2 Foursomes); Anthony Kim (0-0-0, 0-0-0).
International analysis: Captain Greg Norman made the first pick when the Americans, as the defending champs, deferred. Weir wanted to go out in the first group, and Norman made that happen. Clark and Weir each average 278 yards off the tee, so they'll be familiar with the approach shots. Clark has been steadier this year, ranking fourth in driving accuracy and 63rd in GIR to 110th and 164th, respectively, for Weir. So look for the South African to give this team a lift. Seeing blue on the scoreboard early will be critical for the Internationals, too.
U.S. analysis: This pairing was a no-brainer for U.S. Captain Fred Couples. The two Americans went 1-1-1 together at last year's Ryder Cup and both are comfortable in the leadoff spot. Theyre exciting players who won't get rattled if the other leaves them in a less than stellar spot. Finding fairways isn't either's forte -- Kim ranks 183rd and Mickelson 187th -- although the veteran does manage to reach more greens in regulation. Kim's putting stats are better -- he ranks second in birdies -- but Mickelson had an epiphany working with Dave Stockton the week before he won THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola.

ADAM SCOTT
ERNIE ELS HUNTER MAHAN
SEAN O'HAIR
Match time: 3:22 p.m. ET; 12:22 p.m. (local)
Presidents Cup records: Adam Scott (7-6-2 overall, 3-2-1 Foursomes); Ernie Els (13-10-2 overall, 4-5-1 Foursomes); Hunter Mahan (2-3-0 overall, 2-0-0 Foursomes); Sean O'Hair (0-0-0, 0-0-0).
International analysis: Scott and Els have history as a team. The two have played three Foursomes matches together and won two of them. After a fairly solid performance at the Turning Stone Resort Championship, Scott doesn't seem quite as suspect a Captain's Pick as he did three weeks ago -- but he still has something to prove. With three top-10s in his last seven starts, including two in the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup, Els should be the steadying influence in this group.
U.S. analysis: These two 27-year-olds used to play a lot of junior golf together. So maybe it's only fitting that Mahan will partner O'Hair in his Presidents Cup debut. Mahan has done everything but win this year while O'Hair picked up his third career victory and is coming off a pair of top-four finishes in the Playoffs. Both are hitting more than 68 percent of their greens in regulation so there should be opportunities for birdies. Mahan is undefeated in a quartet of Foursomes matches at the last two Cup matches, so he must be doing something right.

VIJAY SINGH
ROBERT ALLENBY LUCAS GLOVER
STEWART CINK
Match time: 3:34 p.m. ET; 12:34 p.m. (local)
Presidents Cup records: Vijay Singh (14-15-6 overall, 5-6-3 Foursomes); Robert Allenby (6-11-2 overall, 2-5-1 Foursomes); Lucas Glover 2-3-0 overall, 2-0-0 Foursomes); Stewart Cink (8-4-1 overall, 4-1-0 Foursomes<
International analysis: Tee to green, Allenby is among the best on either team. His putter has let him down this year, though -- he ranks 189th in putting and 161st in birdies. That has been Singh's nemesis, too, with his corresponding stats 167th and 112th. Off the tee, they'll be compatible, though, and they're accurate with the irons. Plus, there should be a comfort zone since they've played four Presidents Cups together.
U.S. analysis: This duo played together in the 2007 Presidents Cup and lost their only match, a Four-ball contest with Geoff Ogilvy and Nick O'Hern. Two years later at Harding Park, the two good friends are back-to-back major champions after Glover won the U.S. Open and Cink the British Open. Both have solid Foursomes records; this could be a solid team.

ANGEL CABRERA
CAMILO VILLEGAS KENNY PERRY
ZACH JOHNSON
Match time: 3:46 p.m. ET; 12:46 p.m. (local)
Presidents Cup records: Angel Cabrera (3-3-3 overall, 1-2-0 Foursomes); Camilo Villegas (0-0-0 overall, 0-0-0 Foursomes); Kenny Perry (7-6-0 overall, 3-2-0 Foursomes); Zach Johnson (2-2-0 overall, 2-0-0 Foursomes)
International analysis: Pairing the two South Americans was probably an easy decision for Norman. Villegas, who was born in Colombia, is fluent in English but Cabrera is more comfortable speaking in his native Spanish. Not to mention, the big-hitting Cabrera, who won the Masters earlier this year, is playing in his third Presidents Cup while this is Villegas' first. He's not the type of player to be intimidated, though.
U.S. analysis: Between them, Johnson and Perry have four wins in 2009 so you know they are doing something right. Johnson is extremely accurate off the tee and both hit lots of greens. Getting between the ropes should be a positive for Perry, who lost his mother last week and is playing at his family's urging. At 49, he's the oldest player on the team and may not have many more Cup opportunities, so he's sure to savor this.

GEOFF OGILVY
RYO ISHIKAWA TIGER WOODS
STEVE STRICKER
Match time: 3:58 p.m. ET; 12:58 p.m. (local)
Presidents Cup records: Geoff Ogilvy (2-3-0 overall, 0-2-0 Foursomes); Ryo Ishikawa (0-0-0 overall, 0-0-0 Foursomes); Tiger Woods (13-11-1 overall, 7-2-1 Foursomes); Steve Stricker (5-5-0 overall, 2-2-0 Foursomes)
International analysis: This one should be big for TV ratings in Japan, where the 18-year-old Ishikawa has won four times this year, including last Sunday to further validate Greg Norman's unconventional Captain's Pick. Norman said Ogilvy wanted to play with the teen prodigy at some point during the week. So putting the experienced and laid-back Aussie out to steady the rookie in his debut may turn out to be an inspired choice.
U.S. analysis: Woods has been saying for weeks that he wanted to play with Stricker and -- surprise, surprise -- the world No. 1 got his wish. We all know he plays better in this format when he has a comfort zone. The two are well-acquainted with each other's games, too, after playing seven rounds together during the Playoffs. They each won once during that stretch (and also combined for three seconds), so this should be a formidable pairing.

RETIEF GOOSEN
Y.E. YANG JIM FURYK
JUSTIN LEONARD
Match time: 4:10 p.m. ET; 1:10 p.m. (local)
Presidents Cup records: Retief Goosen (11-7-2 overall, 2-5-1 Foursomes); Y.E. Yang (0-0-0 overall, 0-0-0 Foursomes); Jim Furyk (13-8-2 overall, 4-3-2 Foursomes); Justin Leonard (6-10-2 overall, 3-3-2 Foursomes)
International analysis: Again, Norman has partnered one of his most experienced players in Goosen with a rookie in Yang. The South Korean does bring form to the table, though, with two wins in 2009, including the PGA Championship. Driving accuracy could be an issue with neither player ranked higher than 129th on TOUR but Yang's iron play has been solid. The self-deprecating Goosen joked that Yang would be "carrying me around the golf course" but the South African has one win this year and nearly picked up a second before losing in a playoff so don't be fooled.
U.S. analysis: Furyk and Leonard have a 1-1 record together in Foursomes, dating back to the 2003 Presidents Cup. Neither veteran has won this year but their fairways-and-greens games are extremely compatible. Furyk reeled off three straight top-10s to end the Playoffs so he's definitely hitting on all cylinders. This pairing won't panic bringing up the rear, either.

What's happened to Yang? He's really mucking things up on the course.

How did Leonard miss the short putt? That was painful to watch. But I'm glad to know that the Intl team halved the game. Close call!

Pros are human too!

Spidey's hybrid bunker shot was a joke.

Friday's Four-balls

RETIEF GOOSEN
ADAM SCOTT PHIL MICKELSON
JUSTIN LEONARD
Match time: 1:55 p.m. ET; 10:55 a.m. PT
Presidents Cup records: Retief Goosen (11-7-3 overall, 6-1-1 Four-ball); Adam Scott (8-6-2 overall, 3-2-1 Four-ball); Phil Mickelson (11-14-6 overall, 5-6-2 Four-ball); Justin Leonard (2-4-7 overall; 1-1-2 Four-ball).
International analysis: This could be one of International Captain Greg Norman's go-to teams. Goosen and Scott have played five matches together, including three in Four-ball where they are 2-0-1, and have never been beaten. Granted, Scott hasn't been at the top of his game, but he did manage to break par in three of the four rounds he played last week at the Turning Stone Resort Championship. He didn't putt particularly well in his Foursomes match with Ernie Els, but that's why the practice green comes in handy. Neither player is a birdie machine, but Goosen, a two-time U.S. Open champion, has made his share in the clutch.
U.S analysis: These two have played on seven Cup teams together but interestingly have never been partners. Mickelson is at the top of his game after winning THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola, his third victory of the season. Most importantly, he has confidence in the flat stick again after working with Dave Stockton several times in the last three weeks. He's aggressive and could go low while the steady Leonard is hitting fairways and greens. That missed 3-footer on the 18th hole Thursday notwithstanding, Leonard ranks 19th in birdies while Mickelson is 22nd. This could be a match made in heaven.

ERNIE ELS
MIKE WEIR JIM FURYK
ANTHONY KIM
Match time: 2:07 p.m. ET; 11:07 a.m. PT
Presidents Cup records: Ernie Els (14-10-2, 6-3-1 Four-ball); Mike Weir (11-8-1 overall, 5-2-0 Four-ball); Jim Furyk (8-13-3 overall, 1-7-0 Four-ball); Anthony Kim (1-0-0 overall, 0-0-0 Four-ball).
International analysis: Again, Norman went with two players who have previously partnered with success. The Big Easy and the diminutive Canadian won both their Four-ball matches at the 2007 Presidents Cup. Els should be confident after his Foursomes victory and three top-10 finishes in his last eight starts as an individual. The gritty Weir has struggled a bit tee-to-green but once he gets there, he's solid -- ranking 39th in putting and 35th in scoring.
U.S. analysis: Kim is a relative Cup newbie, and he'll be playing with just his second partner in Furyk after three Ryder Cup matches and one Presidents Cup match, all with Mickelson. Kim is as exciteable as Furyk is outwardly mellow, but both want to win badly. Furyk is playing extremely well with top-10s in his last three starts. He ranks third in scoring and 44th in birdies made, too. Kim may not have played as well as he'd like overall this year, but he is nothing if not a competitor, and he ranks second in both putting and birdies.

RYO ISHIKAWA
Y.E. YANG KENNY PERRY
SEAN O'HAIR
Match time: 2:19 p.m. ET; 11:19 a.m. PT
Presidents Cup records: Ryo Ishikawa (0-1-0 overall, 0-0-0 Four-ball); Y.E. Yang (0-0-1 overall, 0-0-0 Four-ball); Kenny Perry (8-6-0 overall, 2-3-0 Four-ball); Sean O'Hair (0-1-0 overall; 0-0-0 Four-ball).
International analysis: Ishikawa has to be glad to be out of the glare of the spotlight after that lopsided opening loss to Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker on Thursday. Norman may be taking a bit of a chance in pairing the two rookies, but the 37-year-old Yang was steady in his debut as he and Retief Goosen halved in Foursomes. Yang, who won the PGA Championship and The Honda Classic this year, ranks 29th on TOUR in eagles and 44th in birdies. Both are big hitters and should be able to get into a comfortable rhythm.
U.S. analysis: This pairing matches the oldest player on Team USA with the second youngest in the rookie O'Hair. This could be a formidable team -- Perry ranks eighth in scoring average on TOUR and O'Hair is 10th. The 27-year-old ranks 16th in birdies while Perry has shown he can sustain the momentum when he gets on a roll. Both are coming off solid seasons, too, with two wins for Perry and one for O'Hair. Not to mention, O'Hair was third at THE TOUR Championship two weeks ago while Perry finished fourth.

VIJAY SINGH
TIM CLARK LUCAS GLOVER
STEWART CINK
Match time: 2:31 p.m. ET; 11:31 a.m. PT
Presidents Cup records: Vijay Singh (15-15-6 overall, 8-5-1 Four-ball); Tim Clark (4-6-1 overall, 3-0-1 Four-ball); Lucas Glover (2-4-0 overall, 0-2-0 Four-ball); Stewart Cink (8-5-1 overall; 2-2-1 Four-ball).
International analysis: Clark has never lost in four previous Four-ball matches. Singh's record is better in Four-ball than Foursomes. The two were paired together in the 2005 Presidents Cup when they halved a match against Fred Funk and Stewart Cink. Clark is one of the most accurate drivers on the PGA TOUR but can be streaky; if he gets hot Friday, the Americans will have their work cut out for them.
U.S. analysis: The Americans' two major winners this year will be paired for a second consecutive day. They didn't fare well against Singh and Robert Allenby in Foursomes, and their Four-ball records in the Presidents Cup are not impressive -- a combined 2-4-1. During the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup, the two played all four events and were a combined 28 over (mostly due to Glover's high scores). One of the two will need to find the touch that won a major this summer.

ROBERT ALLENBY
CAMILO VILLEGAS ZACH JOHNSON
HUNTER MAHAN
Match time: 2:43 p.m. ET; 11:43 a.m. PT
Presidents Cup records: Robert Allenby (7-11-2 overall, 3-4-0 Four-ball); Camilo Villegas (0-1-0 overall, 0-0-0 Four-ball); Zach Johnson (3-2-0 overall, 0-1-0 Four-ball); Hunter Mahan (2-4-0 overall; 0-2-0 Four-ball).
International analysis: Allenby teamed with Mike Weir two years ago in Canada to win two Four-ball matches, but Greg Norman opted to split up that pairing. Allenby, who's playing in his fifth Presidents Cup, should provide a nice calming influence for Villegas, one of three Presidents Cup rookies on the International side. Neither has exactly been a birdie machine this year, but Allenby is accurate, and his game may be a good fit for Harding Park.
U.S. analysis: Neither player won a Four-ball match in their previous Presidents Cup appearances, but this pairing could produce fireworks. Mahan ranks third on the PGA TOUR in total birdies; Johnson ranks 17th. Each player has the ability to produced extended birdie streaks; if they both get on hot streaks Friday, the Internationals will be hard-pressed to counter. Johnson, in particular, seems to be on his game -- he finished fifth at the BMW Championship during the Playoffs.

GEOFF OGILVY
ANGEL CABRERA TIGER WOODS
STEVE STRICKER
Match time: 2:55 p.m. ET; 11:55 a.m. PT
Presidents Cup records: Geoff Ogilvy (2-4-0 overall, 1-1-0 Four-ball); Angel Cabrera (3-4-3 overall, 1-1-2 Four-ball); Tiger Woods (14-11-1 overall, 3-7-0 Four-ball); Steve Stricker (6-5-0 overall; 2-2-0 Four-ball).
International analysis: Neither player had much success during Thursday's Foursomes and this will be their first pairing together in the Presidents Cup. Ogilvy will look to bounce back from the big loss he suffered with teenager Ryo Ishikawa against Woods and Stricker on Thursday, and Greg Norman obviously feels confident in sticking him back in there against the Americans' most formidable duo. If they can pull the upset, it'd be a huge bonus for the Internationals.
U.S. analysis: Anybody can be beaten, but right now it's difficult to imagine a twosome on the International team being able to stop the Americans' two-headed monster. Woods and Stricker made quick work of Ogilvy and Ishikawa, and Woods obviously feels comfortable with the laid-back Stricker next to him. Still, Woods' record in Four-ball is well below average; he's 7-13-0 combined in Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup competititions.
