Here are Monday’s singles matches for the 2010 Ryder Cup. Europe leads the US 9 1/2 to 6 1/2. Europe needs to win five of 12 to take the Cup back. The entire affair will be broadcast on USA starting at 4 am Eastern.
Steve Stricker v Lee Westwood
Stewart Cink v Rory McIlroy
Jim Furyk v Luke Donald
Dustin Johnson v Martin Kaymer
Matt Kuchar v Ian Poulter
Jeff Overton v Ross Fisher
Bubba Watson v Miguel Jimenez
Tiger Woods v Francesco Molinari
Rickie Fowler v Eduardo Molinari
Phil Mickelson v Peter Hanson
Zach Johnson v Padraig Harrington
Hunter Mahan v Graeme McDowell
I like the way these have shaped up. I don’t see any that I’d say are a given, one way or another. Phil Mickelson—the pointless wonder—got a break in being matched against Peter Hanson, perhaps the weakest in Europe’s lineup.
