Brandt Snedeker won't have to wait long to get his first taste of the Ryder Cup. He will join Jim Furyk in the opening foursomes match Friday against Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world.
European captain Jose Maria Olazabal sent two of his best teams to the top of the lineup. The second game features Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia, who are 4-0 in Ryder Cup foursomes.
