Europe

Saturday Foursomes Pairings

Thomas Bjørn stuck with the foursomes pairings that produced a whitewash on Friday afternoon as Europe looked to extend their lead in the fourth session of the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National.

Leading 8-3 with one fourballs match still to finish, Europe needed just a further half a point to guarantee an advantage heading into Sunday's singles.

Veteran pairing Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose were first out on Saturday afternoon, with the pair again facing Dustin Johnson – who Jim Furyk this time partnered with Brooks Koepka.

Sergio Garcia and Alex Noren were paired against Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson in the second match out.

Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood – who earlier in the day became the first European pairing since Rory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters to win their first three matches together – were up against Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau in game three as Furyk once more shuffled his pack.

Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy were handed the anchor role, with Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth out fourth for the United States.
