Ryder Cup Friday foursomes pairings announced during Opening Ceremony

·3 min read

After much pomp and circumstance at Whistling Straits early week, Team Europe and Team USA have finally revealed their opening lineups for the first session of the 43rd Ryder Cup.

The first ball goes in the air plenty early on Friday morning with the start of the first session of foursomes matches (a format in which the Europeans traditionally have had an advantage). It kicks off a three-day weekend of head-to-head golf that will decide who claims the Cup by Sunday evening.

The foursome pairings were revealed on Thursday afternoon at an Opening Ceremony. Take a look at who U.S. captain Steve Stricker and European captain Padraig Harrington put out first.
