Callaway Golf re-signs Phil Mickelson for remainder of his playing career

Mickelson and Kisner never led against Jason Day and Marc Leishman until the par-3 18th hole Friday at Liberty National. I thought, with that speed, it might catch the lip and go in. Took off Monday. Didn't do anything, and then we've had some busy couple days the last two days. It just added spice, or salt in the wound from the other side's perspective, as the USA dominated the second day of play at Liberty National, 4 ½- 1⁄2, and took a commanding 8-2 lead with two days to go.

Spieth and Patrick Reed proved a successful pairing at Hazeltine National last fall, and Presidents Cup captain Steve Stricker has opted to keep the two young stars together.

So, he and Patrick Reed had to settle for rallying from two down through 14 holes to halve their match against the worldwide team's Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Hadwin.

The United States has dominated this event over the years. "I don't know what the last guy is in the world ranking on the American side, but they are very accomplished".

"I think we saw the strength of the USA team come out today but in all fairness to my guys, I don't think they played as well as they were capable of", said global captain Nick Price, who was refusing to wave the white flag.

Phil Mickelson rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to cap another big day for the Americans and set a record for the largest lead after two sessions in Presidents Cup history.

South African Charl Schwartzel handed in another disappointing effort for the Internationals, combining with Anirban Lahiri to be smashed 6-and-5 by American Cup rookies Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell. Thomas, playing in his first worldwide team match as a pro, vigorously shouted and waved, encouraging the crowd to cheer after he holed out from a greenside bunker on No. 14.

"We can catch up on sleep, and we're doing one round and one round tomorrow in an alternate-shot format, it nearly feels like you're playing less golf".

It was dispiriting for the other team, an amalgam of players from all parts of the globe. I'm glad we're starting later tomorrow.

"I took it pretty well, but yesterday was hard", said Hoffman of having to watch the opening matches from the sidelines. - Justin Thomas, on being the first US team to beat Oosthuizen and Grace.

"I'll have plenty in the tank", Spieth said.

"It gave us a little more fire and momentum going into today".

Fowler added, "I like the ride going back better".
