RYDER CUP | RORY MCILROY

The match-up everyone wanted to see happening is happening.


Patrick Reed will face-off against Rory McIlroy in Sunday’s singles opener at Hazeltine as European captain Darren Clarke has gone top heavy in his bid to overturn a three-point deficit to earn a fourth successive Ryder Cup win.

McIlroy's plan is to continue working up the boisterous US crowd, after saying post-round that 'getting them fired up gets us fired up', while Reed performed so well in the Saturday afternoon fourballs that fans were chanting his name as he and Jordan Spieth sealed victory over Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose.

The fired up and in-form duo will get the final day’s play underway at 11.04am local time with a string of quality matches to follow with Clarke using his most successful players so far this week in the top six.

Straight up next is Stenson v Spieth, while the impressive Thomas Pieters - winner of three matches on his Ryder Cup debut - will take on J.B. Holmes in match No.3.

To detail the top heavy nature of the European line-up, only Chris Wood out of the last six players out has managed a point, while the tie of the middle of the pack is undoubtedly No.6, which sees Phil Mickelson take on Sergio Garcia.

Patrick Reed v Rory McIlroy

Jimmy Walker v Rafa Cabrera-Bello
Phil Mickelson v Sergio Garcia
Ryan Moore v Lee Westwood
