We're still three weeks away from the 2012 Ryder Cup matches between the United States and Europe at Medinah County Club, but with both rosters now complete, attention has turned to the specifics of the event.

Here's what we know. The U.S. team is comprised of Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson, Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker, Steve Stricker, Bubba Watson and Tiger Woods.

Team Europe is comprised of Nicolas Colsaerts, Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia, Peter Hanson, Martin Kaymer, Paul Lawrie, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood.

These golfers are among the best in the world and they will take part in what should be an incredible three days of action.

The Friday and Saturday foursomes and four-balls should be exciting to watch and will set the tone for the entire event. Inevitably, though, the Ryder Cup will come down to the singles matches on Sunday.

I have selected six players—three from each team—whose performances will likely decide the 2012 Ryder Cup.
