Olazabal has put Luke Donald in the first match
Luke Donald will take on Bubba Watson in the first of 12 singles matches that will ultimately decide the Ryder Cup.
USA captain Davis Love III opted to put big-hitting Watson out first, followed by close friend and Ryder Cup partner Webb Simpson, who will go head-to-head with Ian Poulter.
Keegan Bradley and Rory McIlroy make up a fascinating third pairing as both captains chose to load the top of their teams with quality in a bid to establish early momentum.
Francesco Molinari has been given the task of anchoring the European side by captain Jose Maria Olazabal, and that means he'll face a rematch with Tiger Woods, who beat him comfortably at Celtic Manor two years ago.
Woods' position is perhaps testament to the fact that he's played the back-nine better than any of his compatriots despite struggling this week, whereas Olazabal has clearly attempted to keep his weaker putters at the back of his pack.
