Q. Jon, first of all, two Ryder Cups and you've been out in the first match in both, how much of an honor is that?
JON RAHM: It's a big honor. It means the captain has faith in me and who I'm partnered with. We are looking to start it the right way. So nothing to be better than to be paired with my friend over here, even though he's most likely teeing off on 1 and I'm glad he's doing it. It's a true honor. Spanish legacy is deep in The Ryder Cup and I'm hoping we can start a new tradition.
Q. Sergio, you've been part of a couple of successful Spanish duos. How much are you looking forward to creating another one this year?
SERGIO GARCIA: Yeah, I'm excited. Jon is not only a good friend but an amazing player and we all know what he can do and what he's done. It's going to be exciting. It's going to be nervy on the first tee but that's what The Ryder Cup is all about. I've been there before, and I'm very, very excited and I hope that we can play great like I know we can and get a point for Europe.
Q. Just a word on your opponent. You've played against Justin and Jordan last time around. Are you looking forward to the rematch?
JON RAHM: We played fourballs, so it's a little bit different way of playing. They are both world-class players and we know what they are capable of and they know what we are capable of. It's going to be a good match and it's rightfully the right way to start a Ryder Cup, and we are all excited.
SERGIO GARCIA: Yeah, two great players. Very strong players that have done a lot of great things, and not only in Ryder Cup, but individually.
So at the end of the day, you know, we have got to go out there and we have got to do what we know we can do, and just give it our best. It's as simple as that.
