Dominant USA record record Ryder Cup win
The USA have regained the Ryder Cup.
The hosts stormed to a record 19 points to 9 win over Europe at Whistling Straits.
Despite Rory McIlroy winning his match, Padraig Harrington’s side lost the singles 8-4.
Shane Lowry was beaten by Patrick Cantlay.
McIlroy’s win on Sunday was his first point of the week.
The four-time major winner hailed the team spirit among the European players.
“It’s by far the best experience in golf.
“I hope little boys and girls watching this today aspire to play in this event or the Solheim Cup, because there’s nothing better than being part of a team – especially the bond we have in Europe.”
Captain Padraig Harrington admitted that the USA were just too good for his team this week.
“They were very strong, they had a good week. They played up to their potential, and got hte momentum, holed the putts. It was a tough one for sure.
“We did our best. My team were certainly pulling together, going in the right direction, I couldn’t have asked more of them.
“It just wasn’t our week.”
