Ryder Cup Day 1 Pairings- Need To Know Info

So here's the first 4 pairing for the morning Foursomes:


And this is what you need to know about the formats for those not sure:

Fourball (four groups of two two-man teams): A match in which each member of the two-man teams plays their own ball. Four balls are in play per hole with each of the four players competing. The team whose player has the lowest score on that hole wins the hole. Should players from each team tie for the best score, the hole is halved.

Foursomes (four groups of two two-man teams): A match where two golfers play together against two other golfers and each team plays one ball. The golfers play alternate shots (player A hits tee shot, player B hits second shot, etc) until the hole is played out. Team members alternate playing the tee shots, with one golfer hitting the tee shot on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting the tee shot on the even-numbered holes. The team with the better score wins the hole. Should the two teams tie for best score, the hole is halved.

Singles (12 groups of two one-man teams): A match in which one player competes against another player. A player wins the match when he is up by more holes than there are holes remaining to play.
