2010 Ryder Cup Singles Matches

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.

  1. So how are the singles matches made?  It is one captain makes a match and then the next captain makes a pick or what? 

    These are some very good matches.  I think the match I most want to watch is Cink/McIllroy.  Interesting since they played and blew the 18th the first day in exactly the same way.  Cink will win this, but not by much – but I don’t think Rory has the experience to win. 

    My other picks:
    Westwood will beat Stricker. (Eur)
    Furyk will win.
    Kutcher wins
    Johnson wins
    Overton will half
    Watson Wins
    Woods loses (Eur)
    Ricky wins.
    Phil Wins.
    Harrington wins (Eur)
    McDowell wins. (Eur)

    US 7.5, Eur 4.5 – US keeps cup.
