Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. leads the International team 6 1/2 to 5 1/2 after the second session of golf’s Presidents Cup was completed today.

Play was suspended yesterday by darkness at Muirfield Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. Four foursome matches -- or alternating shot with the same ball -- had to be completed this morning, with each team winning twice.

Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar won 4-and-2, meaning they held an unassailable four-hole lead with two holes to play, over South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel. Americans Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth also beat South Africans Branden Grace and Richard Sterne 2-and-1.

Angel Cabrera of Argentina and Australia’s Marc Leishman beat Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker 2-and-1, while Australian Adam Scott and Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama defeated Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson 2-and-1.

Five fourball matches, with each golfer playing his own ball and the lowest score winning the hole, and five more foursome matches will be played today. The biennial team event will conclude with 12 singles matches tomorrow.
