World No 1 Jon Rahm and Europe’s record points scorer Sergio Garcia will lead out Padraig Harrington’s side in the opening match of the 43rd Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

Rahm also played in the opening match of the 2018 contest, where Europe ran out 17.5-10.5 winners at Le Golf National to secure their fourth victory in the last five editions of the biennial contest.

The US Open champion will form an all-Spanish pairing with Garcia, making his 10th Ryder Cup appearance and holding the same Ryder Cup points in his career as the entire American team combined, with the duo going out in the first foursomes match at 7.05am (1.05pm BST) on Friday.

Rory McIlroy, playing in his sixth consecutive Ryder Cup and one of four surviving players from Europe’s last victory on American soil in 2012, established a partnership with Ian Poulter that has played matches together in three of the last four Ryder Cups.

The pair won their foursomes match together in 2018 and will have another chance to impress in the final match when they take on FedExCup champion Patrick Cantlay and Olympic gold medallist Xander Schauffele, who teamed up for all four sessions at the 2019 Presidents Cup.
