MELBOURNE - The International team stayed within two points of the defending champions US after splitting the six fourball matches on a trying second day in The Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne on Friday.

In the race to get 17.5 points and win the biennial team event, the Internationals shared the fourball 3-3 to trail 7-5 ahead of Saturday's five foursome matches and five fourball contests, and Sunday's 12 deciding singles.

Australian pair Aaron Baddeley and Jason Day condemned Tiger Woods to his second defeat in as many days with a hard-fought one-up win over the former world No 1 and Dustin Johnson.

Woods put his pair one up with a curling downhill putt at the fourth, but they were pulled back at the following hole before Baddeley holed a long birdie putt at the 13th for the Australians to hit the front.
