TEAM PERSPECTIVE

United States: These two went 3-0 at the Ryder Cup last year and the energy between them was so high, then-Captain Davis Love III elected to sit them on Saturday afternoon so they'd be ready for the Singles. To pair the two again this week was nearly a given. "I love playing with Phil. He's one of my good friends out here, as well as some someone I'm very comfortable playing with," Bradley said. "I know that no matter where I hit it, he's going to be able to get the ball up and down. We just seem to feed off each other very well."-- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

International: Talk about a no-brainer. The two South Africans are close friends and should play well off each other. They played together in the 2011 World Cup and know one another inside and out. "Charl probably knows his swing as well as Louis knows his own swing," International Captain Nick Price said. "They will probably help each other and feed a little off each other."- Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

STAFF PREDICTIONS

Helen Ross: U.S. Americans will feed off a partisan crowd.

Brian Wacker:  U.S. Last year's chemistry still intact.
