Ryder Cup: Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy Square Off in Opening Session
USA's Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, undefeated as a team at Medinah, play the European powerhouse of Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia in the opening session of fourballs on Friday at Gleneagles.
Two days after Phil Mickelson poked fun at Rory McIlroy, they face off in the Ryder Cup.
Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, undefeated as a team at Medinah, play the European powerhouse of McIlroy and Sergio Garcia in the opening session of fourballs on Friday at Gleneagles.
Mickelson took a playful jab at McIlroy when he said the best part of American unity is the players don't "litigate against each other." McIlroy has a court battle against his old management firm and the lawsuit now involves Graeme McDowell.
Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson will hit the opening shot in the better-ball format against Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson.
Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker go up against Thomas Bjorn and Martin Kaymer; and Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed play Stephen Gallacher and Ian Poulter.
