The US Team dominated day 2 of the Presidents Cup winning four of the five fourball matches against the International Team. The two teams halved the fifth match.

In other matches, there were convincing wins of 3 & 2 for Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler over Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen and for Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson over Jhonattan Vegas and Adam Scott.
