The 39th edition of the Ryder Cup tees off Friday morning at Medinah Country Club in suburban Chicago. Foursomes matches, where two players alternate shots, begin at 7:20 a.m. CT and continue throughout the morning. Fourball matches, in which players each play their ball to the hole and the two-man team takes the best score, are scheduled for the afternoon.
