United States reveal Ryder Cup practice groupings

The United States gave their first clues regarding potential Ryder Cup pairings when they revealed their initial practice groupings on Tuesday.

Both teams had their first chance to check out the set up at Le Golf National on Tuesday, with the American players starting at the first from 0915 local time (0815 BST).

The opening practice group saw Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed in the company of Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.

Good friends Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth were together in the next group, along with Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler.

Group three was then comprised of Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau, Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson.
