DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner rallied for a four-ball win Saturday, handing the United States a five-point lead over the Internationals at The President's Cup.

The pair were 2-down after six holes against the international squad of Richard Sterne and Marc Leishman, but then staged a comeback as Johnson eagled the 15th hole to close out his match.

The American duo went on to a 4 & 3 win, putting the United States ahead 11 1/2-6 1/2.

In all, the Americans took 4-of-5 four-ball matches amid another weather delay at Muirfield Village, where parts of three sessions were played Saturday following Friday's similarly wet weather.

Foursome play was begun Saturday, with all five matches progressing to the back nine before play was halted for the day.

The foursome round is to restart at 7:35 a.m. EDT Sunday, with singles matches to follow at 9 a.m. with more rain predicted.
