Default Buzz-Ryder Cup Question

I embarrasses me to admit it, but I have no clue how these pairings are decided as far as who plays who. Let me be specific.

I know for the final single matches that the coaches submit a sheet with their players with their order. For example Funk goes off first, Tiger last, or something like that. That the coaches dont know the order of their opponent and there is a lot of guess work. Crenshaw front loaded it to get off to a great start at Brookline I remember. What I don't follow is the fourball and foursome matches.

I mean I understand the coaches are selecting their pairings for the fourball. But who decides the order? Do they know? For example, the first match is Tiger and Phil versus Monty and Harrington. Who decided this? Did Sutton just say I want this pairing going off first and Langer said I want this group first and it happened by accident like with the singles match ups? Or does Sutton know in advance that pairing and then makes his pairing, and then Sutton has to go first for announcing the second pairing and then Langer can announce his?

I actually was wondering the same thing when I saw the first round matches.

I'm 99 % sure the capts submit their line-up in the order they wish it to be played. The match-ups then fall as the line-ups match up with each other.

Each captain submits his teams or players and they are matched up with the other teams.
Buzz, I dont go to games. I buy all the Directv packages and watch them from the comfort of my own home! I dont like listening to all the fans nonsense at games! I pay for blonde women to come over and have sex with my hispanic hottie maid, and sometimes I get involved to make it a threesome! I like to lay in my pool during the day sipping on drinks that have umbrellas!
