Dublin, Ohio • Another rain delay cut short some exceptional golf Friday in the Presidents Cup.

Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley shot 30 on the front nine at Muirfield Village, an astounding performance in foursomes. Only some sloppy play allowed the match to go 15 holes in a 4-and-3 win over Jason Day and Graham DeLaet.

Right behind them, Brendon de Jonge began to emerge as a star of the International team. He teamed with Ernie Els and they never trailed in a 4-and-3 win over Hunter Mahan and Bill Hass, going 8 under when the match ended at the 15th.

The Americans had a 4½-3½ lead, though four matches were still in progress when darkness descended on Muirfield Village.

For the second straight day, storms interrupted play and left a bleak outlook for finishing Sunday. Heavy rain — and the time it took to get small pools of water out of the bunkers and fairways — led to a delay of nearly three hours.

The other four matches — the Americans were up in two, the International led the other two — are to resume Saturday morning.

Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar were 6 under through eight holes and still only had a 1-up lead over Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel. Oosthuizen missed a short par putt on the ninth to lose another hole.
