World number one Rory McIlroy will play his third straight Ryder Cup match in day two's morning fourballs but has lost his European partner from today, Sergio Garcia, and is joined by Ian Poulter.
Four-time Major winner McIlroy managed half a point from his two matches on day one, losing with Garcia in fourballs before scraping a half in the foursomes.
He will be joined in the final fourball match at Gleneagles by Poulter, who suffered his first Ryder Cup defeat in eight matches with local favourite Stephen Gallacher at the hands of young rookies Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth earlier today.
In the opening Saturday match, in-form duo Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson will lead Europe out for the second day running after winning both of their matches on day one.
They will again face Bubba Watson in fourballs, but this time the Masters champion is alongside Matt Kuchar instead of Webb Simpson.
