Ryder Cup Afternoon Fourball Pairings - Time for a bit of European grit, Faldo sends in Jimenez to blow smoke in their face.

Only one man out of the two teams is not going to get a game under his belt today, England's Oliver Wilson left on the sidelines. Captain Nick Faldo assured reporters he would be out tomorrow. The Irish pair we were expecting go out first, while Sergio pairs up with Jimenez for a Spanish duo too. Westwood then plays with Soren Hansen and Ian Poulter and Justin Rose get the chance to make up for their morning capitulation.

There are two straight swaps on the American side, Steve Stricker & Ben Curtis and the thrilling pairing of JB Holmes and Boo Weekleycome in for Campbell & Cink and Furyk & Perry.

Here's the line up and order.

Phil Mickelson and Anthony Kim v Padraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell
Steve Stricker and Ben Curtis v Ian Poulter and Justin Rose
Justin Leonard and Hunter Mahan v Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez
JB Holmes and Boo Weekley v Lee Westwood and Soren Hansen

McDowell and Harrington are off to an absolute flyer already, three up on Mickelson and Kim after four holes! Go on the Irish, lead the way, Rally to the Paddys!

Wow, Rose nicks one too, wait a minute, they did this in the morning, I'll keep my power dry for now...
