U.S. Captain Watson's Day 1 Pairings Take Shape

AS REX HOGGARD REPORTED AT GOLFCHANNEL.COM, U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson appears to have decided on his foursomes pairings for Day 1 of the 2014 Ryder Cup.

Three practice rounds have revealed a familiar pattern. On Wednesday, Hoggard noted, "Watson sent virtually the same foursomes out ... as the first two days."

Phil Mickelson will again pair with Keegan Bradley. The two were a successful duo at Medinah in 2012.

"I'm going to play again with Keegan. I don't think I'm letting go of any secrets here," Lefty said.

How are the rest of the pairings shaping up? It looks like this:

Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker
Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar
Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson
Zach Johnson and Hunter Mahan
Jim Furyk and Patrick Reed

"[The pairings] have somewhat evolved," Watson said. "We are not set in stone."

The U.S captain said after the start he'll be "captaining by the seat of [his] pants."
