We’ve had to wait an extra year, but the Ryder Cup is back.
A stacked United States roster, with nine of the top 11 players in the world, looks to regain the cup after losing it three years ago in France. That journey begins on Friday at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.
First up on Friday morning will be alternate shot, also known as foursomes, which will be followed by four-ball.
Alternate shot is exactly what it sounds like — the pairs alternate shots in a match-play format. Four-ball is where each player plays their own ball, and the lowest score between the two is what each pair records, again in a match-play format.
Which format matches go first Friday and Saturday is decided by the home team’s captain, which is Madison, Wis., native Steve Stricker for the Americans.
Coverage will be on televised on Golf Channel throughout the day, starting at 8:30 a.m. ET and going until 7 p.m. ET.
Below are Friday’s tee times and matchups for the morning foursomes at Whistling Straits. Results will be updated as matches finish throughout Friday, with betting odds courtesy of DraftKings:
