Most of the best players in the world will compete at the Ryder Cup next week at Le Golf National outside Paris. And one of the topics of discussion heading into a team competition like the Ryder Cup is the equipment that the players will play. Particularly in the foursome format, where teammates play alternate shot, we often like to speculate which golf ball a pairing will use in competition.

We can debate which pairings captains Jim Furyk and Thomas Bjorn should put together for foursomes (and fourball, of course) play next week. And while we do that, it's interesting to look at the equipment the players will use at the Ryder Cup. Here's a look at the equipment of the U.S. team members (as of the Tour Championship).
