Dublin, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson put together a stunning display of golf Friday to help the United States keep a one-point lead at The Presidents Cup.

Bradley and Mickelson went 8-under par through 11 holes en route to a 4 & 3 win over Jason Day and Graham DeLaet in the first match.

Ernie Els and Brendon de Jonge won the second match for the International team over Bill Haas and Hunter Mahan by the same 4 & 3 margin.

However, those were the only two matches completed. There was a lengthy weather delay for the second day in row, leading the rest of Friday's foursomes matches at Muirfield Village to be suspended due to darkness.

The United States leads 4 1/2 points to 3 1/2.

Play will resume Saturday morning at 7:35 a.m. ET. Saturday's scheduled fourballs matches will start approximately one hour after the foursomes play ends. More foursomes action is slated for Saturday afternoon.

Americans Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth were 3-up through 14 holes against Branden Grace and Richard Sterne. Both teams will have eagle putts on the 15th green when play resumes.

Angel Cabrera and Marc Leishman won the 11th and 12th, but Webb Simpson poured in a 30-footer for par on the 13th to get himself and Brandt Snedeker within 1-down of the Internationals. Both teams found the 14th fairway off the tee, then agreed to stop the match there.

Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar are 3-up after 12 holes against Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel. Their match was stopped after Kuchar made a bogey putt to win the 12th. Oosthuizen found water off the tee, leading to a double- bogey.

In the final match, Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Scott own a 4-up lead through 11 holes against Americans Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson. Dufner is looking at a short par putt to halve the 12th hole when play resumes on Saturday.
