2018 Ryder Cup pairings: Matches, teams, complete schedule for Day 2 on Saturday

The Americans got roasted again on Saturday morning at the 2018 Ryder Cup and now enter the afternoon session needing a borderline miracle just to be in the mix on Sunday at Le Golf National. Europe leads the defending champions 8-4 by scoring eight straight points as the United States has only won a single match since opening with a 3-1 lead on Friday.

The U.S. will roll out some new pairings for the foursomes portion of the event Saturday afternoon after a disastrous showing in the same format one day earlier (a dominant 4-0 sweep by Europe). Whether these adjusted pairings will do anything to get the Americans going remains to be seen, but at least U.S. captain Jim Furyk is trying something.

Here's a look at the tee times and pairings for the second session on Saturday.

All times Eastern

Brooks Koepka / Dustin Johnson

Justin Rose / Henrik Stenson

Webb Simpson / Bubba Watson

Francesco Molinari / Tommy Fleetwood

Justin Thomas / Jordan Spieth

Ian Poulter / Rory McIlroy

All of these matches are compelling for sure, but one thing is for sure: This will be an absolute show.  The U.S. side is now underdogs looking for its first win in Europe since 1993, while Europe is suddenly trying to deal with its new role as favorites.
