First Session Ryder Cup Teams Announced
By mustang6560 on 9/30/10

The opening round lineups were announced Friday morning and it’s no big surprise Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are featured. With no further delay, here are the lineups for the first session.

2:45 AM EST - Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson vs. Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer
3:00 AM EST - Steward Cink and Matt Kuchar vs. Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell
3:15 AM EST - Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods vs. Ian Pulter and Ross Fisher
3:30 AM EST - Bubba Watson and Jeff Overton vs. Luke Donald and Padraig Harrington
The top two players in the world were expected to participate in the first session at Celtic Manor, but it came as a surprise -- especially to European captain Colin Montgomerie -- that two premier players in Furyk and Mahan will watch the opening session.

Furyk is coming off an $11.35 million payday Sunday after capturing the Tour Championship and winning the FedEx Cup. He moved to No. 5 in the world, and U.S. captain Corey Pavin quipped that he was tired from "counting all of his money."
I understand somebody has to sit out each match; however, I am a little surprised it was Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan. Furyk is coming off a great swing of momentum after winning at East Lake and taking home the $10 million FedExCup trophy. And Mahan played great at the Ryder Cup at Valhalla two years ago and won all five events he played.

What do y’all think? Which match-up do you look forward to the most?
