Kenny Perry, Sean O'Hair
Match status: International wins 4 and 3
Match summary: In the first all-Asian pairing in 11 years, Yang and Ishikawa were relentless from the start, winning the first two holes with birdies, and stretching their lead to 4 up through six holes. Yang also had a hot start in foursomes Thursday that slipped away.

Not this one. The American won consecutive holes with birdies to close out the front nine. The match turned on the 13th, when Yang drove the green for an easy birdie. Yang birdied the next hole with a 20-foot putt.

Match status: International wins 1 Up
Match summary: The Americans never trailed until the 10th hole, when Singh holed an 18-foot birdie putt for a 1-up lead.

But the Americans failed to capitalize, failing to birdie the short 17th as Singh nearly drove the green for an easy birdie.

Johnson then came up with two big putts. He holed a 12-foot birdie putt on the 14th for a 2-up lead, and after Allenby knocked in a clutch birdie on the 17th to keep hopes alive, Johnson rolled in a birdie on top of him to win the match.

Tiger Woods, Steve Stricker
Match status: U.S. wins 5 and 3
Match summary: The Americans' toughest team has yet to play the 16th hole this week and have yet to put a bogey on their card. Stricker chipped in from the side of the green for birdie on the first hole, and hit his wedge to 2 feet for another 1-up lead on the fifth.

If there was a turning point, it came at the sixth. Stricker was behind the trees, while Woods laid well back off the tee. Ogilvy was some 80 yards short of the green, Cabrera even closer in deep rough. Ogilvy chunked his chip, Cabrera went 40 feet long, and their third shot was still outside Woods, who made his 5-footer for birdie. They were 3 up at the turn and lost only one hole, closing them out when Woods hit a towering approach to 5 feet on the 15th that was conceded.
