The 42nd Ryder Cup tournament gets underway on Friday at Le Golf National in Paris, France.

Team USA are the reigning champions and have travelled to East hoping to defend their title, but a strong Team Europe will be hoping to claim victory on home soil.

At the opening ceremony, the first four matches of the tournament were announced as captains Thomas Bjorn and Jim Fury named their pairings for the first morning.
