Ryder Cup Countdown:Practice Round Pairings

The U.S. Ryder Cup team played practice rounds today at the K Club, site of the Ryder Cup matches. According to ESPN, Tiger Woods was paired with Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson with Chris DiMarco. Both of which were successful pairings at last year's Presidents Cup, a match similar to the Ryder Cup but instead the U.S. playing an international team. Here is alist of pairings from the practice round:
U.S. Team
*Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk
*Chris DiMarco and Phil Mickelson
*David Toms and Chad Cambell
*Scott Verplank and Brett Wetterich
*Zach Johnson and Stewart Cink
*Vaughn Taylor and J.J. Henry

European captain Ian Woosnam paired players during the practice rounds by nationality, but said, "I think you can read a little bit into that,". Players paired by Woosnam were:
The European Team:
*Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson - Sweden
*Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia - Spain
*Colin Montgomerie, Paul Casey, David Howell, and Luke Donald - England
