The 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris, France is set to get underway on Friday morning. The Ryder Cup starts with four-ball (two players one each team, everyone plays their own ball, best score for the hole wins).

Tiger Woods, coming off his Tour Championship win last weekend, will obviously be one of the most-followed players at this year's Ryder Cup. His partner for Friday morning has been decided.

Woods, 42, will be playing with Patrick Reed, the 2018 Masters champion.

The match will get underway at 2:55 a.m. E.T.

ESPN's Bob Harig had more:

From being out of the Ryder Cup picture to the possibility of playing four matches out of five is an interesting development for Tiger Woods. Look for him to not only play Friday's fourball match with partner Patrick Reed, but to play foursomes in the afternoon. The two practiced the format Thursday. The big question for captain Jim Furyk: Who does he sit in the afternoon? It has become common practice for American captains to use all of their players on the first day.

Woods and Reed will be taking on Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood. They're excited. "It's going to be fun for both of us. We've been looking forward to teaming up and doing something like this together. We finally have our opportunity to go against two great competitors," Woods said.

"The best way to do that is to go out and have some fun and try to play some good golf and do it the right way, and any time you get to tee it up with Big Cat, it's always fun.”

We're excited, too.
