2014 Ryder Cup: Ranking the Head-to-Head Matches We Most Want to See
Associated Press
Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson would make a heck of a match at the Ryder Cup.

When the 2014 Ryder Cup convenes at Gleneagles in Scotland, the U.S. team will be fueled by the redemption of a tough loss in 2012 at Medinah.

The European team is fueled by something just as powerful in the opportunity for a three-peat.

On paper, the experienced European team looks formidable with three of the four major-title winners on the squad. They also have the hottest player in the world, No. 1-ranked Rory McIlroy.

Meanwhile, the Tiger-less U.S. squad is led by 44-year-old Phil Mickelson and a mishmash of players who are looking to turn the tide for their country.

The matches will be tough, heated and combative.

It would be fun to watch Ian Poulter against just about anyone, especially if you are a Team USA fan and would love to see the pouty Brit lose.

But there are plenty of good matchups out there for these two groups of the world’s best players. With that in mind, there are some matches we would love to see occur and here is a view of the best.
