Team USA will face Team Europe once again at the 39th edition of the Ryder Cup starting this Friday September 28 from the Course 3 at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois.

The once dominant American team wants to stop Europe's recent domination by reclaiming the Cup it lost at Celtic Manor in 2010.

To do this, the Americans must win outright by earning 14.5 points of the 28 that are up for grabs. This includes 12 points in singles matches on Sunday.

The Americans have the overall edge in wins with a record of 25-11-2, but the Euros have won six of the last eight and have tilted the power balance their way.

Both squads are loaded, but the Americans have a very strong and balanced team that features 11 of the 12 players ranked inside the top 17 in the world—one of the strongest teams in recent years.

The benefits of the home crowd roars and cheers, added to the fact that most of this players are as a team playing much better than their European counterparts going into the weekend should give USA fans hopes of a win on Sunday.

One thing is assured, we are in for a thrilling three-day roller coaster ride of emotions that would rival Bizarro at Six Flags.

Let's take a look at each of the players on Team USA.
