Here are the pairings for the morning foursomes for day two at the Ryder Cup. Davis Love has made the right decision in resting Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker as the curse of alternate shot still haunts them. With so many teams playing well Love has the luxury of sitting some players in his effort to keep any player from playing in all five matches. In my opinion Tiger should never play alternate shot again. He is now 4-8-1in a format he just can’t perform in.
Love has chosen to keep Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley playing and if they win in the morning it may be hard to keep them on the bench in the afternoon.
He is sending two other winning teams out in the morning, Bubba Watson & Webb Simpson and Jason Dufner & Zach Johnson.
He is hoping that his team of Jim Furyk & Brandt Snedeker can get a little revenge against Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell in a rematch of the day one match where the Euros triumphed.
