DUBLIN, Ohio -- The six Foursomes matches for Friday at The Presidents Cup are set. The International team will keep its same pairings from Thursday's Four-balls. The United States made two changes.

Mahan and Snedeker played together on Thursday but lost to Day and DeLaet. Haas and Simpson were together and halved their match against Scott and Matsuyama.

Those two teams were switched. Couples also decided to go with Mickelson and Bradley in the lead group after their first loss as a duo. They had been 3-0 at last year's Ryder Cup.

"We changed a couple of teams and to be honst, once you start changing more than one team, then it becomes a whole mix-match of everybody," U.S. Captain Fred Couples said. "We feel very comfortable with Phil and Keegan leading the pack early."

Price didn't see a need to change any of his pairings, even though Foursomes is traditionally the weaker format for the International team.

"We've got 12 wonderful ball-strikers here," Price said. "I'm not going to lose faith in those teams, to be honest."

The first tee time is 1:10 p.m. ET. The U.S. will take a 1-point lead entering Day 2.
