World No. 2 Tiger Woods will not play in the morning's alternate-shot fouresomes matches as Day 2 of the 2012 Ryder Cup begins on Saturday morning.

The first match of the morning will begin at 7:20 a.m. CT and feature the dynamic duo of Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson against Europe's best group from Day 1, Justin Rose and Ian Poulter.
