2012 Ryder Cup: Tiger Woods left out of Saturday morning pairings

The pairings for Saturday morning's foursome matches have been released, and Tiger Woods has been relegated to the bench for Team USA along with Steve Stricker. For Woods, it's the first time in his career at the Ryder Cup that he's missed a session and it comes on the heels of a Friday where he and Stricker lost both of their matches.

Here are the pairings and start times for Saturday morning's matches:

  • 7:20 a.m. CT: Webb Simpson/Bubba Watson vs. Justin Rose/Ian Poulter
  • 7:35 a.m. CT: Keegan Bradley/Phil Mickelson vs. Lee Westwood, Luke Donald
  • 7:50 a.m. CT: Jason Dufner/Zach Johnson vs. Nicolas Colsaerts/Sergio Garcia
  • 8:05 a.m. CT: Jim Furyk/Brandt Snedeker vs. Rory McIlroy/Graeme McDowell
After the morning's matches, the tournament will shift to fourball for the afternoon, in which Woods may appear. The United States is entering Saturday's matches with a 5-3 lead on Team Europe after a strong showing from the Bradley/Mickelson pairing, which won both of its matches on Friday.
