SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — The Latest on the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National (all times local):

2:20 p.m.

All 12 singles matches are out on the course, and the Europeans have made the solid start they needed as they look to bring back the Ryder Cup.

Europe is up in six of the matches, the United States leads in two of them, and the others are all square.

Webb Simpson holds the biggest lead at Le Golf National, 3-up on Europe's Justin Rose. Tiger Woods, looking for his first point of the week, is 2-down to Jon Rahm.

Rory McIlroy was 2-up on Justin Thomas after four holes in the opening match but they are all square heading to the back nine.

The Europeans are 10-6 ahead and need 14 1/2 points to regain the cup.

12:32 p.m.

Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas got things started on the final day of the Ryder Cup, with Europe holding a commanding lead and the United States hoping for another historic comeback.

Europe went into Sunday's singles with a 10-6 edge, needing only 4 1/2 points from the 12 matches to reclaim the prize it lost two years ago at Hazeltine. The Americans must get eight points to keep the Cup.

On a sunny day with temperatures climbing toward the mid-60s at Le Golf National, the United States put Thomas in the leadoff spot against the four-time major champion from Northern Ireland.

The home team was looking for another strong showing from Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari, who became the first European duo ever to win all four of their matches in fourballs and foursomes. Fleetwood is facing Tony Finau, while Molinari takes on Phil Mickelson, who didn't play at all Saturday after a poor showing in his only match so far.

Tiger Woods was facing Spain's Jon Rahm, looking for his first victory of the weekend. Woods went 0-3 over the first two days.

Only two teams have rallied from a four-point deficit heading into the final day: the Americans at Brookline in 1999 and Europe at Medinah in 2012.
