Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth also won for the Americans, defeating Branden Grace and Richard Sterne 2 and 1. DAY 3: Presidents Cup scoring The Internationals also completed two victories Saturday: Angel Cabrera and Marc Leishman, 2 and 1 against Webb Simpson and Hunter Mahan; and Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Scott, 2 and 1 against Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson. Leishman’s birdie on the 15th hole gave his side a 1-up lead. His 7-iron that plopped down a foot from the hole on the 17th for a birdie secured the victory. That was the pivotal match when the foursomes session concluded Saturday morning because of a rain delay. Nearly an inch of rain fell on Friday, causing a delay of 2 hours, 34 minutes. Only two matches were finished Friday before darkness. In the matches that finished, Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley won for the USA, defeating Jason Day and Graham DeLaet 4 and 3, and Ernie Els and Brendon de Jonge won for Internationals, defeating Bill Haas and Hunter Mahan 4 and 3.

USA Network Holding Anti-Bullying Commercial Contest (Exclusive)
With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues to be a cornerstone in our lineup of USAs original signature dramas. The renewal comes mere weeks before Covert Affairs returns for the second half of its fourth season, which wrapped its summer run in mid-September. It was one of summers top 10 cable scripted shows, with nearly 4 million viewers. When Covert Affairs returns for the remaining six episodes, co-creatorsMatt Corman and Chris Ordpromise a “totally different show” following CIA agent Annie Walker’s (Piper Perabo) decision to fake her own death and go deep undercover in her continued mission to topple Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin). “This change that we see in Annie at the end [of the finale] is a seismic one and a major one,”Corman told THR in September . “It’s going to launch us into a back six where we see a totally different Annie and a totally different show, and we hope people enjoy it.” “Every episode and every script we’ve been doing is exciting because we get to see a whole new side to Annie and how she operates, and the choices she’s forced to make are a whole new chapter. She’s never been faced with many of these challenges and she doesn’t have the support system to help her. It’s very interesting how she copes with this new paradigm,” Ord told THR. Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Hill Harper also star in the Universal Cable Productions series fromCormanandOrd, who are executive producers along withDoug Liman, David Bartis, Gene KleinandStephen Kay. Gorham will direct the fourth episode of the remaining half of the season. International locations featured this season include Medellin, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Grand Bahama Island and Geneva. Covert Affairs’ renewal comes as USA preps its big original comedy push following the syndication debut of Modern Family, and the return of veteran drama White Collar later this month. Suits is set to return for the back half of season three in early 2014, with Royal Pains already renewed for season six, long-running comedy Psychreturning for season eight and rookie Gracelandpicked up for a sophomore run.The fate of Necessary Roughnesshas not yet been determined.
“Starting on hole 5, we played some of our best golf together.” “We seemed to feed off each other,” Bradley said. “I love showing off in front of him, and I think he likes showing off in front of me. It’s a lot of fun. We really played the par-5s tough today, which when your opponent is doing that, that’s really difficult. We get in this alternate-shot we just feed off each other. ” After losing our first match (Thursday), we felt awful. We really wanted this match and we played well.” Few are playing as well as Woods and Kuchar, who won 5-and-4 Thursday and have made just one bogey in 26 holes. Schwartzel and Oosthuizen, winners on the first day, have six birdies and are still 3 down. “Both of us are playing well,” Woods said. “I hit a couple loose iron shots this afternoon, but made a couple good putts and just kind of put the heat on these guys. And 7 under through 11, that’s not bad in alternate-shot. It’s just one of those days where both teams are really playing well, and we still got our work cut out for us (Saturday).” No one on the International side played better than Ernie Els and Brendan de Jonge, who led the PGA Tour in birdies this season. The two made one eagle and six birdies to rout Hunter Mahan and Bill Haas. “This guy, he played beautiful and we both played well today,” said Els, the only player on the International team to taste victory in the series.
