In recent years Team Europe has dominated the Americans. The last time the two sides faced off was 2010 in Ireland where Team USA came shockingly close, but came up just short as they lost by a single point. Now led by Davis Love III, USA are looking to take back the cup with a youth movement, while the Europeans field a balanced squad with plenty of Ryder Cup experience throughout their pairs.
Coverage for Friday will begin at 8AM on ESPN, who will handle the day's coverage.
