At a Glance: Saturday’s Four-Ball matches

Match #21 Steve Stricker (3-0-0, 5-3-0) and Hunter Mahan (2-1-0, 2-1-0) vs. Vijay Singh (1-1-1, 13-14-6) and Stuart Appleby (1-2-0, 4-13-2) U.S. analysis: Stricker and Mahan were paired together in the morning Foursomes session and came away with a point. Captain Jack Nicklaus took note of that and kept this duo together for the afternoon Four-Ball session. Stricker continues to roll, playing the best golf of his life. Ditto for Mahan, who has been a force all summer long. U.S. key statistic: Just keep making birdies. It’s what Stricker and Mahan have been doing all week. International analysis: Appleby has a rough Presidents Cup record — now 4-13-2 after Saturday morning’s Foursomes loss. Singh, on the other hand, helped out in a big way in a rout of Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk on Friday and fought hard with Mike Weir on Saturday morning despite a loss to Lucas Glover and Scott Verplank. International key statistic: With Appleby struggling, Singh is going to need to be firing on all cylinders, which he is very capable of. Match outlook: Unless Appleby can pull it together, Stricker and Mahan are going to be too tough for the Internationals to overcome. Projected outcome: U.S. Team wins
