Tiger Woods is splitting up his own dynamic pairing.

After winning two matches alongside Justin Thomas on the first two days, U.S. team captain Woods announced that he'll sit out Session 3 of the Presidents Cup in Friday's pairings announcement.

Day 3 will feature two sessions of four matches each, meaning four Americans and four Internationals will sit out each round.

Rickie Fowler will slide in beside Thomas in Woods' absence. They will be out first versus Marc Leishman and Haotong Li, who will be seeing his first action of the week.

Here are the four-ball pairings for Session 3 (all times ET):

Americans Time Internationals
Justin Thomas
Rickie Fowler
3:02 p.m. Marc Leishman
Haotong Li
Xander Schauffele
Patrick Cantlay
3:16 p.m. Sungjae Im
Abraham Ancer
Patrick Reed
Webb Simpson
3:30 p.m. Hideki Matsuyama
C.T. Pan
Matt Kuchar
Tony Finau
3:44 p.m. Adam Scott
Byeong Hun An

Despite the pairing of Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson going winless in two matches so far, Woods will send them out together for a third straight day. Woods also left the Patrick Cantlay-Xander Schauffele pairing intact.

Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, and Gary Woodland will join Tiger on the bench for the third session.

International captain Ernie Els elected to bench Louis Oosthuizen for Saturday morning's session despite the South African earning two points for the team so far. Joaquin Niemann, Adam Hadwin, and Cameron Smith will also be on the sideline for Saturday's four-ball.
