Ryder Cup 2023: Opening foursome pairings promise drama

Sep 28, 2023

The Ryder Cup will begin Friday morning with four foursome pairings that will kick off the three-day event with a flourish.

In foursomes, players alternate shots on one ball. Players must alternate tee shots. The events are match play. The United States currently holds the Ryder Cup but has not won in Europe in 30 years.

Europe look to lean on home advantage as the biennial competition heads to Italy for the first time in Rome.

The United States claimed a commanding 19-9 victory on home soil at Whistling Straits in 2021, winning back the trophy from Team Europe.

But the US have not won on European soil since 1993 and many of Europe’s best players are peaking at the right time. After the drama of the Solheim Cup, with Europe rallying to earn a draw and retain the cup, Luke Donald’s side will take confidence this week.
