DAY TWO MATCHES:

Dustin Johnson / Matt Kuchar V Adam Scott / Louis  Oosthuizen

Adam Hadwin / Joaquín Niemann V Patrick Cantlay / Xander Schauffele

Webb Simpson/ Patrick Reed vs Marc Leishman/ Abraham Ancer

Justin Thomas/Tiger Woods v Ben An/Hideki Matsuyama

Gary Woodland/Rickie Fowler v Sungjae Im/Cameron Smith

Amazingly, all five International pairs are different to day one. 

Scott said he was relieved to secure a point on day one, after a "shaky" start.

The star and teammate Byeong-Hun An defeated Americans Tony Finau and Bryson DeChambeau 2&1.

And while he said it was "almost impossible" not to carry the pressure of experience and a home event, he said the pairing had done "a nice job".

"Ben had me covered early while I was shaky," Scott said. "After a couple holes, I settled down and hit some shots. It was good fun."
