Cleveland native Jason Dufner and his partner Zach Johnson are scheduled to tee off at 8:50 a.m. ET from Medinah Country Club in the 2012 Ryder Cup.

Dufner and Johnson, along with the rest of the U.S. squad, share a 5-3 lead heading into Saturday's foursomes. In his first Ryder Cup appearance, Dufner and Johnson dispatched Lee Westwood and Francesco Molinari, their opponents Saturday, 3 and 2 in foursomes. Dufner sat out the afternoon session.

The U.S. is riding the momentum of an impressive 4-and-3 win by Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson over Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald in foursomes, and a 2-and-1 win over Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell, probably Europe's best pair, in four-ball.

With Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson shellacking Peter Hanson and Paul Lawrie 5-and-4, the U.S. tees off Saturday with a modest lead.

Tiger Woods will sit out the morning session after two losses Friday with partner Steve Stricker, but both will be in action in the afternoon.
