Three formats are used in the Ryder Cup series — foursomes, fourball and singles. On Friday and Saturday morning, foursomes play will get under way as two US players are paired up against two European players. In this format, players consistently alternate shots on every hole for a combined score. In fourball (Friday and Saturday afternoon), each golfer plays his own ball and the pair counts the best of the two scores for each hole.

Finally, the Ryder Cup wraps up with singles play on Sunday, in which one European and one American are pinned against one another. The best score on each hole wins the hole.

Among the golfers representing the US at the Ryder Cup in Illinois are Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker. The captain for the US is Davis Love.
