European Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington believes he has a "strong, balanced team" to take on the USA.

Team Europe are on their way to Wisconsin ahead of the team matchplay event getting underway on Friday.

"I have a nice, strong, balanced team," the three-time major winner said ahead of the team departing for America.

"It's very balanced. Good for foursomes and fourballs. We are well prepared at this stage, certainly in my head.

"It's the Ryder Cup so I'm sure there will be a few things that happen that throw up a few complications, but we are well prepared and whatever comes at us we should be able to deal with."
