In all nine players have won each of their first two matches, but at least one of them will be eliminated.

In Group 5, Salas and Kang both scored wins.

Salas earned a 3&2 victory over Switzerland's Albane Valenzuela at Shadow Creek on Thursday while Kang topped Sweden's Madelene Sagstrom 2&1.

But before their clash, they plan to watch Friends: The Reunion together.

"Of course," Salas said.

"There's a reunion," Kang added.

"We have matching 'Friends'-like doors, the yellow frame," Salas said. "We have matching key chains. She got the set."

"Tomorrow is going to be definitely interesting," Kang said. "I'm playing one of my best friends. But at the end of the day, we're still competitors.

"Just going to go out there and play the best we can, and at the end of the day I want to win and I know she wants to win. So we're going to bring our A games and see who comes out on top."

West Australian Hannah Green beat Azahara Munoz 1 up with everything to play for in Group 9, with all four players – Mel Reid and Gerina Piller the other two – winning and losing one each.

Compatriot Sarah Kemp remained winless in Group 7, tying her second successive match, this time with Stacy Lewis.

Compatriot Minjee Lee beat Cheyenne Knight 4 and 3 in Group 8 but remains behind Moriya Jutanugarn, who remains unbeaten after whipping Jaye Marie Green 6&5.

The event is the LPGA Tour's first match play competition since 2017.
