DUBLIN, Ohio -- A brief look at the second session Friday of the Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village Golf Club:

PARTIAL SCORE: United States 4½, International 3½.

INCOMPLETE SCORE: The Americans had 3-up leads in two matches that didn't finish. The Internationals were 4 up in one match, 1 up in another.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Branden Grace hit out of a deep bunker to inside a foot on the 13th to win the hole.

ROUND OF THE DAY: Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley shot 30 on the front nine and finished with six birdies in an eagle in foursomes.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar were 6 under through eight holes and still only had a 1-up lead over Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen at that point. The Americans were 3-up through 12 when the round was stopped by darkness.

KEY STATISTIC: There were 50 birdies and two eagles over 80 holes of golf played Friday -- in alternate shot.

NOTEWORTHY: The Internationals have lost seven sessions of foursomes.

QUOTEWORHTY: "They are not protecting the course like they might do on a Sunday of the Memorial. So they are setting up the course where you can make some birdies if you play properly." -- Ernie Els.

TELEVISON: Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT, NBC.
