Gleneagles, Scotland: Reigning US Open champion Martin Kaymer of Germany and Thomas Bjorn teed off for Europe in Friday morning`s second Ryder Cup fourballs match against Americans Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker.
Denmark`s Bjorn, playing in his first Ryder Cup since 2002, is 2-0 in Cup fourball matches while Kaymer is 2-1 in the format in the biennial US-Europe showdown.
Fowler lost his fourball appearance two years ago at Medinah in his Ryder Cup debut, losing to Kaymer and Ian Poulter, while Walker made his Cup debut at 35.
A huge and often noisy crowd filled the stands and lined the fairway but became silent for tee shots, with Walker becoming the first American to find the opening fairway. Bjorn and Kaymer did so as well.
