    After a nightmare weekend so far at Whistling Straits Rory McIlroy is set to lead out Team Europe in Sunday's singles matches.

    It's the third consecutive Ryder Cup that he has been sent out first in, although he has lost both of his previous matches.

    He takes on Xander Schauffele today, having been beaten by Patrick Reed in 2016 and Justin Thomas in 2018.

    There's little room for error though for McIlroy.

    He needs to get Europe off to the perfect start for the visitors to have any hope of overturning an 11-5 deficit, which is USA's biggest lead going into a Sunday singles in the modern Ryder Cup era.


    Memories of the "Miracle at Medinah" will drive Europe to put up a fight against the dominant United States on the final day of the Ryder Cup, captain Padraig Harrington said as his team faces an uphill task of retaining the trophy.

    The United States enter Sunday's 12 singles matches with a commanding 11-5 lead, needing just 3-1/2 points in the final session to win back the title Europe took from them in Paris in 2018.

    Europe need nine points to retain the title at Wisconsin's Whistling Straits, half a point more than they won in their storied comeback on the final day of the 2012 Ryder Cup at the Medinah Country Club in Illinois, where they bounced back from 10-6 down for a stunning comeback win.

    Harrington said: “Six points is a tough one to make up tomorrow, but I think we were a half-point short of that in the Miracle at Medinah on Sunday, so we're just going to have to push for that tomorrow.

    "There's no doubt that's going to be very strong on our minds."

    The United States also pulled off a similar comeback title win in 1999, fighting from 10-6 down on the final day of the contest at Brookline.

    Harrington added: “Even reversing it to Brookline. I know that was a four-point gap. These things can be done.

    "But again, it is more of an individual game tomorrow and getting them to focus on winning their point.

    "I'm sure they know they have a very tall order ahead of them, but it's still possible.

    “Focus on their individual self and play their game and win that and then just see how it adds up."

    Only nine times in 42 Ryder Cups has a team come from behind on the final day to lift the trophy.
