Matsuyama-Scott (Int'l) def. Dufner-Johnson (U.S.), 2 & 1

Not quite enough

Zach Johnson's approach set up a birdie putt by Jason Dufner, but the Americans fell in their foursome match to Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama.

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama won their second straight match together, hanging on to beat Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson, 2 and 1.

QUICK LOOK

Once leading by as many as 5 up, Scott and Matsuyama struggled to close things out once play resumed Saturday morning, losing three straight holes before holding on for the 2 and 1 win. Dufner and Johnson rallied late with three straight birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 15 before Scott and Matsuyama finally halved the next two holes to win. One oddity from the match: Dufner and Johnson had more birdies than Scott and Matsuyama, 4 to 3. Of course they also had three bogeys, compared to none for Scott and Matsuyama.

MAN OF THE MATCH

Hideki Matsuyama. The 21-year-old made a 10-footer for birdie on No. 2, reached the par-5 fifth in two from 259 yards and made an 11-footer for birdie on No. 6. He then sank the clinching 3-footer.
