OK, here they are:

1:10 p.m.: Tiger Woods/Fred Couples v. Retief Goosen/Adam Scott
Tiger got his wish, he’s playing with Freddie. Meanwhile, Gary Player picked the 2 quietest (read dull) golfers to match. Edge on paper: US.

1:20 p.m.: Jim Furyk/Fred Funk v. Vijay Singh/Mark Hensby
Furyk and Funk are two of the straightest hitters. Vijay’s got the firepower, and Hensby’s having a breakthrough year. Don’t be surprised if Double-Fs pull this one out, but you have to give the Edge on Paper to World.

1:30 p.m.: Phil Mickelson/Chris DiMarco v. Nick O’Hern/Tim Clark
Chris DiMarco was tenacious at the Ryder Cup, and he’s a great complement to Lefty. I don’t know much about either O’Hern’s or Clark’s game, so that must mean that they’re not superstars, right? Edge on paper: US.

1:40 p.m.: Justin Leonard/Scott Verplank v. Peter Lonard/Stuart Appleby
Both Leonard (2 wins) and Verplank (T2 TPC) will be hungry after not making the Ryder Cup. The Aussie team of Lonard (105th on Order of Merit) and Appleby (1 win) are formidable, though. Edge on paper: toss up.

1:50 p.m.: Davis Love/Kenny Perry v. Michael Campbell/Angel Cabrera
Another great pairing. 2 wins this year for Kenny, but none for Love. Michael Campbell is having a breakthrough year winning the U.S. Open and then the World Match play last weekend. Angel Cabrera is 3rd on the Order of Merit, with 1 European Tour win. Edge on paper: World.

2:00 p.m.: Stewart Cink/David Toms v. Trevor Immelman/Mike Weir
This is the last team for good reason: a lot of question marks in this group. Can David Toms recover from his heart scare? Can Cink forget about the Ryder Cup debacle? Can Immelman and Weir gain their consistency back? Edge on paper: toss up.
