SERGIO Garcia has been paired with Rory McIlroy to take on Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in the stand-out – and final – match in this morning’s fourballs.
Europe’s Ryder Cup captain, Paul McGinley, has shown his faith in Garcia and McIlroy by placing the duo in the anchor position for the first session at this year’s event at Gleneagles.
McIlroy’s back to back major victories in the Open and then the PGA Championships at the end of the 2014 season makes him the in-form player going into the tournament.
Combined with Garcia’s experience, the European duo are slight favourites over the American pair.
