TEAM PERSPECTIVE

United States: This duo doesn't attract the attention of some of their more high-profile teammates -- but no matter. Dufner and Johnson just continue to get the job done. They went 2-1 together at the Ryder Cup and dominated in beating Richard Sterne and Branden Grace 5 and 3 in Foursomes. Neither is a big hitter but they find fairways and greens. Johnson has played phenomenally well the last three months and Dufner is riding the wave of his PGA win. -- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

International: The Japanese sensation showed some serious stones with that approach shot on No. 18 Thursday to set up a gimme birdie and nudge out an important half-point for the International Team. Can he execute as well for a second straight day against a potent Johnson-Dufner duo in the day's anchor match? That's a tall order, even with Scott hitting every other shot. -- Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

STAFF PREDICTIONS

Helen Ross: U.S. Only unless Matsuyama produces another miracle shot.

Brian Wacker: U.S. They may be the second-best U.S. team this week.
