Langer Tinkers with Pairings for Foursomes
September 17, 2004
After Europe got off to their best ever start in The Ryder Cup Matches, Captain Bernhard Langer has tinkered with three of his parings for the afternoon foursomes.
Thomas Levet makes his Ryder Cup debut in the company of Miguel Angel Jimenez
against Jay Haas and Chris DiMarco in the top match.
The Colin Montgomerie and Padraig Harrington partnership, who took the scalp of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in the morning, remains intact but faces Davis Love III and Fred Funk in the foursomes.
Darren Clarke is reunited with his great friend Lee Westwood against America's top team - Woods and Mickelson - in what is sure to be a classic.
Two more great friends Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald are in the anchor match against Kenny Perry and Stewart Cink.
While Hal Sutton has chosen to play all his 12 players on the opening day, three of the European rookies - Paul Casey, David Howell and Ian Poulter, remain on the bench for the first day.
