McIlroy and Thomas to open Sunday singles, Rahm faces Tiger
Rory McIlroy will go head-to-head with Justin Thomas in a blockbuster opening singles match at the 2018 Ryder Cup, while Tiger Woods will face Jon Rahm on Sunday.
The line-up for the final-day singles was announced on Saturday evening after Europe had opened up a 10-6 lead over the United States, leaving Thomas Bjorn's men needing just four and a half points to regain the trophy they lost at Hazeltine two years ago.
McIlroy and Thomas make up a tantalising first contest, with matches two and three seeing Paul Casey face Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose take on Webb Simpson.
Next comes the battle between Rahm and Woods, two players without a win this week. Woods' singles record in Ryder Cups is far superior to his dismal statistics in team play.
Europe's two star players at Le Golf National, Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari, will come up against Tony Finau and Phil Mickelson respectively, with Jordan Spieth drawn against Thorbjorn Olesen.
The other Sunday matches will see Ian Poulter meet Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia face Rickie Fowler, Tyrrell Hatton take on Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson battle Bubba Watson, while Alex Noren clashes with Bryson DeChambeau in the final contest.
