Ryder Cup: Player ratings
Central to Europe's prospects despite a poor singles record. Binds group with endless banter and laser irons. 9/10
Brings 100 per cent record in foursomes to Medinah. From 120 yards in there is no-one better on either side. 9
Almost back to his best at an event that defines him. Keeps the flame of Seve alive with his love of the fight. 9
A baby in Ryder Cup terms, but a beast of a golfer. The world No 1 in absolute command of all he surveys. 10
The hero of Celtic Manor. Brilliant foil for McIlroy and a lethal putter. 8
World No 5 enjoying best year of his career. Steady tee to green, running into form with putter. 8
Europe's attack dog. Inspires with adrenalin-fuelled engagemen. Gunslinger on the greens. 8
Quiet man of the team. Hits it long and straight. Unflappable temperament makes him a gift pairing.7
Unerring tee to green. Playing without his brother Eduardo for company, but won't be short of partners. 6
Showing signs of a return to form that took him to world No 1 last year. Hits it a mile and is a nerveless putter. 6
Twice a winner this year, Lawrie has never played better. Won 3.5 points on debut in 1999. 8
Europe's secret weapon. Longest hitter on either side and tidy around the greens. 6
Fearsome consistency starting to return. But can he play the team man? He will have to if America are to win. 9
A mixed bag this year. Won early then went missing before hitting his straps in the FedEx play-offs. 8
A golfing swing state. If he is on his game, he can take the match away from Europe. On the other hand... 9
A serious asset with his length off the tee, great short game and physical presence. A talisman-in-the-making. 9
Perfect foil for Woods and fantastic putter. Spectacularly unspectacular in appearance and style. 8
Quiet man of the American team. Long hitter and unflappable. 6
A taller version of Stricker without the putter. Super steady tee to green with a fantastic temperament. 7
The opposite of Kuchar. Not long or steady, but deadly with the putter.7
Hotter than July in mid-season with two wins and two seconds in five events. Off the boil lately. 6
Like big D, could be game changer. Fantastic competitor, great attitude and goes for every pin. Mickelson loves this kid. 8
Europe are lucky he is out of season. On fire throughout 2011. Won first major at US Open this year. 7
America's crackerjack. Irreverent, fearless, funny and on form. Can sink a putt from a thousand paces. Enough said. 9
