Synchronized ball-marking by Ryo Ishikawa and Tiger during Thursday’s match? I just really like this picture.
Anyway, here’s the line up for Friday’s Four-Ball matches:
International vs. US
Goosen/Scott vs. Mickelson/Leonard
Els/Weir vs. Furyk/Kim
Ishikawa/Yang vs. Perry/O’Hair
Singh/Clark vs. Glover/Cink
Allenby/Villegas vs. Johnson/Mahan
Ogilvy/Cabrera vs. Woods/Stricker
All the pairings look like they’re set up perfectly for Four-Ball — the games of each team’s players offset the other. Perfect example is Furyk and Kim. While Furyk is steady and reliable, AK plays the “bomb and gouge it” game, but when he’s hot, he’s a birdie machine.
Which team do you think has the stronger pairings? Well, it’s going to be another fun day. God, I love match play.
