DUBLIN, Ohio — Another rain delay cut short some exceptional golf Friday in the Presidents Cup.
Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley shot 30 on the front nine at Muirfield Village, an astounding performance in foursomes. Only some sloppy play allowed the match to go 15 holes and a 4-and-3 win for the Americans.
Right behind them, Brendon de Jonge began to emerge as a star of the International team. He teamed with Ernie Els in a 4-and-3 win over Hunter Mahan and Bill Haas.
Those were the only two of six matches that were completed as storms interrupted play for the second straight day and left a bleak outlook for finishing Sunday. The Americans, still a point ahead, led in two matches, while the Internationals were ahead in the other two. They will be completed this morning.
In the matches the Americans led, Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth were 3 up through 14 holes against Branden Grace and Richard Sterne, and Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar were 3 up after 12 holes against Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel.
