Ryder Cup 2010: What to Expect for Monday's Finish

Singles matches analysis

Lee Westwood leads Europe out, Rory McIlroy is second up and Tiger Woods is hidden away as the hosts seek the five points they need from 12 singles matches to regain the Ryder Cup

Lee Westwood against Steve Stricker

Europe's best player against the USA's steadiest. Stricker is not to be underestimated but Westwood has been nothing short of magnificent.

Rory McIlroy-Stewart Cink

The young Northern Irishman has experienced the thrill of a Ryder Cup this week – some exhibition – and played well. His bad luck is to find himself up against Cink, who has putted better than anyone on either team.

Luke Donald-Jim Furyk

Two well-matched players. Both find fairways and greens with metronomic regularity and thrive under the pressure of a Ryder Cup. He who holes most putts wins. It was ever thus.

Martin Kaymer-Dustin Johnson

A contest between the two leading lights of golf's new generation of superstars. Or at least it would be if Kaymer's ball-striking had been up to its normal standard and Dustin Johnson had not played like a drain.

Ian Poulter-Matt Kuchar

Contrasting personalities, to say the least. Poulter is a fist-pumping, crowd-rallying sort; Kuchar has the demeanour of a head librarian.

Ross Fisher-Jeff Overton

Overton, a rookie who has never won a PGA Tour event, might have crumbled under pressure this week. Instead he has thrived. Fisher had better bring his very best game.

Miguel Angel Jiménez-Bubba Watson

Spanish cool against Florida jitteriness. Consistency versus consistency. The seventh match of the day and one that could be decisive if Europe's upper order does its job for Montgomerie.

Francesco Molinari-Tiger Woods

For the second time in this match Corey Pavin appears to have "hidden" the world No1. Woods should win this one, especially if the Italian's putting woes continue.

Edoardo Molinari-Rickie Fowler

Two rookies who have played exceptionally well this week. This match might not get much television coverage but it should be a matchplay beauty. Both will gladly risk a double bogey to make a birdie.

Peter Hanson-Phil Mickelson

Anyone who has not seen any golf from Celtic Manor would automatically give the point to Mickelson. Those who have will know the Swede has the advantage, partly because he was performed well on his Ryder Cup debut but mostly because Lefty has been awful – again.

Padraig Harrington-Zach Johnson

The Irishman was transformed in the company of Ross Fisher, winning two points from three. He is on his own today. Will he play as well? He had better because Johnson is a very tough competitor and a very good player.

Graeme McDowell-Hunter Mahan

Both captains decided they needed a "backstop", so the US Open champion and the best American player from 2008 find themselves out last, when in all likelihood their efforts will count for nothing. A shame for them and us.
