The 39th Ryder Cup: U.S. vs. Europe at Medinah Country Club

The 39th Ryder Cup is underway at Medinah Country Club outside Chicago.

In Friday’s opening match, Rory McIlroy was paired with Graeme McDowell for the European team against newly crowned FedEx Cup champion Brandt Snedeker — a Ryder Cup neophyte — and Jim Furyk for the U.S.

Two other U.S. rookies were slated for the opening session of alternate-shot foursomes. Keegan Bradley teamed with Phil Mickelson against Europe’s Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald. Jason Dufner was next, paired with Zach Johnson, against Lee Westwood and Francesco Molinari for Europe. Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker were slotted for the anchor match against the British duo of Ian Poulter and Justin Rose.

In four of the last five Ryder Cups, the team that won the opening session wound up taking home the trophy.
