Golf-DeChambeau to face Garcia in singles on Sunday as USA draw closer to Ryder Cup victory


(Reuters) – American Bryson DeChambeau will face Spaniard Sergio Garcia in singles on Sunday, while Olympic champion Xander Sc Heaterele will face quadruple major winner Rory McIlroy as the United States only needs 3-1 / 2 points on the last day to secure the Ryder Cup.

The United States will enter the final session with an 11-5 lead over defending champions Europe after delivering another day of dominance in the windswept Whistling Strait on Saturday.

Europe will have to make a historic comeback to win the 9 points required to keep the trophy.

Ryder Cup rookie Scottie Scheffler will face world number one Jon Rahm in singles on Sunday, while world number three Collin Morikawa will face Viktor Hovland and Patrick Cantlay will face Shane Lowry.

World number two Dustin Johnson will face Paul Casey, followed by Brooks Koepka taking on Bernd Wiesberger and Tony Finau against Ian Poulter.

American Justin Thomas will face Briton Tyrrell Hatton, Harris English will face Lee Westwood followed by Jordan Spieth against Tommy Fleetwood. Daniel Berger is the latest pair to face Matt Fitzpatrick.

If the United States wins the Ryder Cup on Sunday, it would be the second in six Ryder Cups and the third of the last 10 that the Americans have won the title.
