                                                They matches will get under way at the Caverns Country Club in Luray shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. Each team has 12 spots on its roster and the matches will be played using all 3 current Ryder Cup formats. The formats are as follows: (With a little help from Wikipedia)

A foursomes match is a competition between two teams of two golfers. The golfers on the same team take alternate shots throughout the match, with the same ball. Each hole is won by the team that completes the hole in the fewest shots. A fourball match is also a competition between two teams of two golfers, but all four golfers play their own ball throughout the round rather than alternating shots, and each hole is won by the team whose individual golfer has the lowest score. A singles match is a standard match play competition between two golfers.

Each team will have 4 golfers compete in all 3 of the categories in what should prove to be a fun day on the links.
