Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson look a bet to see off Rose and Wood in today's foursomes.
An exciting first day has drawn to a close and we barely have time to digest what happened before embarking on what is a vital day for Europe on Saturday as they try not to lose any more ground. It was a very decent fight back in the fourballs on Friday and both teams will be content with the score after day one.
The foursomes pairings are out and a surprising choice by Love to stick with Fowler and Mickelson as I feel they scraped over the line yesterday. I would not be overly confident of them beating Rory and Pieters. That being said I don't overly fancy getting involved.
Snedeker and Kopeka have every chance of overturning Stenson and Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick obviously expressed a wish to be left out yesterday as he struggles to find his game. Again though, it's a close call and I don't think it would pay to get involved.
Same can be said for Reed / Spieth v Garcia / Bello. This is probably the closest match on paper of the four and it's no surprise Love has left these two lads until last as they looked quite fatigued at close of play yesterday. Garcia and Bello played some of the best golf of the day yesterday and it is no surprise they line up together again. I'd side with Europe here if I was forced.
The best bet of the day comes in the shape of Walker and Johnson. After a turbulent front nine yesterday they really got their game together and finished with a run of birdies to close out their match. Their games really suit a foursomes match and I can see them knocking in another point for the hosts. Justin Rose was average yesterday in both matches and partners Chris Wood who has yet to hit a shot. This looks the weakest Euro partnership versus the strongest Yank partnership of the morning. We'll have a strong bet on these two.
