Ernie Els has however made a decision to mix up his selections.
There was concern ahead of the biennial match play event at Royal Melbourne that the newcomers could be overawed by the experience.
The lone American win came early with playing-captain Tiger Woods and partner Justin Thomas defeating Marc Leishman and Joaquin Niemann 4&3.
Tiger had the last laugh that day, beating Singh 2&1 in the American victory at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. The U.S. team, on the other hand, has ten players out of 12 who are ranked in the top 20. He put himself in the lineup Friday along with Thomas in foursomes.
Woods might be playing the best of any American player at the moment. Where is the angst? Just because we lost the session doesn't mean the cup is over.
But Scott seems exhausted of losing. "This is a strong team, and they're going to come back strong". Oosthuizen has seen his share as well, as has Matsuyama. At the time, it gave the global team a 6-1 lead.
However, Woods could only watch as Els' underdog gained momentum and ripped through his more experienced side. So far, they have.
Global captain Ernie Els hailed his seven rookies after taking a 4-1 Presidents Cup lead Thursday and the experienced Louis Oosthuizen said the veterans were feeding off the youngsters' energy.
Adam Hadwin and Sungjae Im, International, def. Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay, United States, 1 up.
"We are excited to go out tomorrow and win some games, and turn this around", said 15-time main champion Woods.
As for the juggling lineup, Els has gone with an analytical approach.
"That's what we practice for", Hadwin said.
"We've played one session, we've got four more to go".
Woods assembled the strongest USA team ever for the Presidents based on the world ranking.
Dustin Johnson and Gary Woodland had been branded a dream team by American media after the long hitters were named in a pair on tournament eve. Both International players competed in last week's Australian Open in Sydney, with Oosthuizen finishing second.
"Of course they are going to speak out, because they want to get their crowds going and get on their side", Reed continued.
Woods chipped in at the par three No. 5 hole.
Reed wound up hitting his second on the green and two-putting for par. "We haven't had a start like this for many, many years, so it's really nice to have some points on the board".
"It feels good, " Scott said. We don't know the results from here on out, but this is a great start. I think everyone's got a taste for it.
"We're excited about getting out there tomorrow and winning some matches and turning this thing around".
