Montreal:Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk hope they will have better luck together on Saturday in the Presidents Cup than they did on Friday afternoon.
Coming off a 5-and-4 four-ball loss to Vijay Singh and Stuart Appleby, the American stars will face Ernie Els and Adam Scott in the third foursomes match on Saturday morning. The best-ball loss was Woods' worst in team competition.
Singh and Appleby were 11 under through 14 holes.
"We ran into a tough match," said Woods, 2-7 in Presidents Cup best-ball play.
"Not like we were playing bad. We shot 6 under, but we played the same holes. We needed to take it a lot deeper than that and we didn't do it."
International captain Gary Player paired Singh and Canadian Mike Weir for their second straight alternate-shot match.
On Thursday, they earned the International side's lone half-point in the opening session in an exciting match with Phil Mickelson and Woody Austin, who also will be back together on Saturday.
Singh and Weir will face Scott Verplank and Lucas Glover in the fourth of the five morning matches, while Mickelson and Austin will meet Appleby and Retief Goosen in the second match.
In the other morning matches, Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan will open against South Africans Trevor Immelman and Rory Sabbatini, and David Toms and Zach Johnson will face Australians Nick O'Hern and Geoff Ogilvy in the finale.
Americans Charles Howell III and Stewart Cink will sit out the morning session along with International player Angel Cabrera and KJ Choi.
The teams will play five four ball matches on Saturday afternoon, then wrap up the competition Sunday with 12 singles matches.
