Worksop golfer Lee Westwood will partner Welshman Jamie Donaldson this afternoon in a foursomes match against Americans Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar.

That match up is the first scheduled for the afternoon’s play and due to begin at 1.15pm.

Westwood and Ryder Cup rookie Donaldson sat out this morning’s fourballs session, as both teams got a point on the board early on.

Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson won the first match of the 2014 event at Gleneagles 5&4, dominating Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson.

Ian Poulter and Stephen Gallacher were beaten by the same margin by America’s young guns Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.
