MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — Leading off with its strongest team, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell, Europe has begun defense of the Ryder Cup.

Loud chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” greeted the Northern Irishmen and the American duo of Jim Furyk and Ryder Cup Brandt Snedeker as they walked onto the first tee at Medinah (meh-DY’-nuh) Country Club.

McDowell, who delivered the winning point for Europe two years ago, hit the first shot and it sailed way left, coming to rest beneath a tree near the corporate hospitality tents that line the fairway. Furyk’s drive wasn’t much better, also bouncing into the gallery.

The other alternate-shot matches are Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley vs. Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia; Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson vs. Lee Westwood and Francesco Molinari; and Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods vs. Ian Poulter and Justin Rose.
