Europe win the Ryder Cup

Europe have today won the Ryder Cup beating USA 14½ to 13½, after much rain this weekend the Ryder Cup final day went into Monday with Europe leading 9½-6½ overnight. With both Lee Westwood and Rory McIlory losing groundb. The stage was set for Graeme McDowell to steal the show and win it for Europe. USA had struggled to find any consistency and were always chasing Europe clawing back 13½ each and the Ryder Cup came down to the final match thanks to some clutch putting by 21-year-old Rickie Fowler. But it was then left for McDowell to finish things off nicely.

Needing a full point to secure the win, US Open champion McDowell sent cheers reverberating around the course as he sunk a brilliantly-judged 15-foot putt for birdie at the 16th to move two-up with two to play. Victory was then confirmed when Mahan, following a poor chip, failed to sink a long putt for his par at the short 17th, conceding McDowell's putt to hand Europe to spark wild European celebrations.
