United States of America open up record Presidents Cup lead

Mickelson and Kisner never led until that hole. Hadwin will be making his Presidents Cup debut. Mickelson was 12 feet away for birdie.

"We're playing great players; it's very hard", said Scott.

The Americans danced because they could.

It just added spice, or salt in the wound from the other side's perspective, as the USA dominated the second day of play at Liberty National, 4 ½- 1⁄2, and took a commanding 8-2 lead with two days to go.

The past three American presidents - Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton - have confirmed they will be present for the start of the event at Liberty National on Thursday. "The last birdie was most notable as Mickelson sank a 12'4" putt that led to an unusual (but awesome) celebration with Kisner.

"I'm clearly the worst selfie taker". That's all I can say. "But I can putt".

"It's very hard", a visibly dejected global captain Nick Price said.

Clifford Tillotson, age 61, of Aumoana Place, Kaneohe, Hawaii, has also been charged with defacing greens at three other Trump properties in NY.

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed contributed a half point to the US effort when their match with Hideki Matsuyama and Canada's Adam Hadwin ended all-square.

"Since then I've been trying to find another shaft and head to go together", he said. "They have a knack for doing that".

Hadwin and Matsuyama were two up on Spieth and Reed through 14 holes, a scoreline that put them in the driver's seat to extract a big point. "But I think our team and our boys are ready to rally behind everyone, and hopefully we can finish strong later on in the week".

Former US Presidents Barack Obama George W. Bush and Bill Clinton kicked off the Presidents Cup tournament in New Jersey on Thursday- the first time three former presidents have attended the biennial event

The hosts had built up a two-point lead following the opening day's foursomes and extended their advantage thanks to some inspired play from their pivotal players to increase their chances of securing a seventh consecutive victory in the biennial matchplay event.

The only not won by the Americans on Saturday morning. The Internationals won three.

"I spoke to him this evening, and he just said, 'my timing's off, '" Price said.

"We're only 10 points through 30".

"We're one point better off then we were two years (ago)", Price said.

"This team is a unique team from any in the past in that the talent level is high or higher than we've ever had, and the camaraderie amongst each other on and off the course is a whole different environment; that there's this great support system", Mickelson said.

After two relatively simple victories, they will go up against the global squad of Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace - the best tandem for the opposition who get a shot at redemption after losing to the Americans on Friday.

The American pair Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler set the tone in the first match, thrashing Hideki Matsuyama and Charl Schwartzel 6&4. "We're pretty fresh off a disappointing day where they stole most of our points".

They got off to the flawless start with a win at the first and went to the turn 2up and looking comfortable but the back nine again proved their undoing.

Thomas birdied the next hole, and his bunker shot on the 16th hit the pin and somehow stayed out.

- American rookies Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman, both who sat the bench on Thursday, battling Anirban Lahiri and Charl Schwartzel. But the Americans, who entered this edition of the Presidents Cup with a 9-1-1 record in previous tournaments, managed to pick up a 3½-1½ lead at the end of Day One. The International team can be backed at 25/1 for a remarkable win and the tie at 15-15 is available at 20/1. But it has at least been close after the opening two sessions, with neither side leading by more than two points since 1998. "These guys are going to keep pushing us".
