Preview: Mahan-Snedeker (U.S.) vs. Day-DeLaet (Int'l)

DUBLIN, Ohio -- A preview of the Thursday Four-Ball match between the American duo of Hunter Mahan-Brandt Snedeker vs. the International duo of Jason Day-Graham DeLaet. Tee time for this match is 11:45 a.m ET.


Hunter Mahan
8-5-1 (2-3-0 Four-Ball)

Jason Day
1-3-1 (1-1-0 Four-Ball)

Brandt Snedeker

Graham DeLaet


United States: Snedeker calls Mahan a "safety net" because he expects his partner to hit fairways and greens -- Mahan ranks 25th in both categories on TOUR. Snedeker, on the other hand, can be a birdie matchine and ranks fourth in strokes-gained putting. The two have known each other since their junior golf days and while this is a first-time partnership, it will be a comfortable one."Hunter and I have our hands full," Snedeker said. "I feel really comfortable about our chances." -- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

International: With seven Presidents Cup rookies on the roster, Nick Price wanted to spread his experience around, starting with Muirfield Village member Day in a pairing he felt was important given fast starts by the U.S. in the past."Those two guys are very keen to get going," Price said. "For all of us, it was an obvious choice who we were going to put out first." - Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM


Helen Ross: International. Day and DeLaet appear to have jelled.

Brian Wacker:  International. It's Day's home course.
