The new American power pairing delivered on Day 1 at the Ryder Cup, and it did so against two European stalwarts.

In the anchor foursomes match Friday morning at Whistling Straits, Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay rolled over Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter, 5 and 3.

The American twosome, who foreshadowed what they could become at the 2019 Presidents Cup with a 2-2 record together, roared out to a commanding early lead and were 5 up through five holes.
