European Captain Nick Faldo gave the clearest indication yet of his potential Friday pairings when he sent the players out for their final practice round at Valhalla Golf Club.

With the start of The Ryder Cup less than 24 hours away, Faldo sent out Henrik Stenson with Paul Casey and the oldest member of the Team, Miguel Angel Jim�nez with rookie Graeme McDowell.

Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood, two of Europe's senior Ryder Cup players, were paired together while three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington was joined by Robert Karlsson.

Two Englishmen, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose, were paired together while rookies Oliver Wilson and S�ren Hansen made up the final two.

The groupings began on the 10th tee ahead of Captain Faldo and United States Captain Paul Azinger revealing their pairings for Friday morning's Foursomes.
