Ryder Cup -- United States trails Europe 10-6 heading into final day

Ryder Cup -- United States trails Europe 10-6 heading into final day”

The Americans need to equal the record for the largest-ever Ryder Cup comeback to lift the trophy and win on foreign soil for the first time since 1993. Even better, though, was the 25-footer he converted at the 17th to slam the door shut on Tony Finau and Brooks Koepka as they threatened to pull off a fightback by winning three holes in a row.

The 2018 Ryder Cup built some drama for a short while during the Sunday singles matches, but in the end, Europe rolled to a clear victory after entering the day leading 10-6. It never materialised. At one point, in fact, Europe were up in all four matches again. Only twice before had a team come from four down going into the singles to win - the USA doing so at Brookline in 1999 and Europe in 2012 in the "Miracle of Medinah", but another stunning comeback never really looked on the cards.

"At Brookline we lost".

"Ian, being a Ryder Cup guru, to have him twice today and win, and he pounded his chest twice on us earlier today". "I don't think there's a guy in my team room who would argue with me". That's what it's all about. You go full bore tomorrow.

The U.S. finally put some more red on the board, though, with Spieth and Thomas defeating Poulter and McIlroy 4&3 after losing the first two holes, and Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson getting the better of Garcia and Swede Alex Noren - a match in which the second hole was shared with triple-bogey sixes.

Open champion Francesco Molinari secured the winning point as Europe regained the Ryder Cup with victory over the United States in France.

But this was more about team, and about redemption, even for a team that now has won nine of the last 12 times.

"We came here to do a job, and it wasn't to go in the record books or anything like that", Molinari said. For Europe, it's yet another in a long line of machine-like performances. Phil Mickelson, who struggled all week and helped engender the task force that led to the selection of this team, hit a ball in the water on No. 16, took off his hat and conceded to Francesco Molinari.

He has also totally turned around his rivalry with the 14-time major victor in 2018, having avenged his singles loss at Celtic Manor with the three wins alongside Fleetwood, after also lifting the Claret Jug in July when playing partner Woods had led with eight holes remaining. The Europeans dovetailed superbly to surge four-up after eight holes, a lead they still held after 12.

"I don't know what planet he lives on, but it's not the one that the rest of the players live on, that's for sure".

Phil Mickelson got another Saturday off. USA captain Jim Furyk made a decision to sit the 48-year-old Mickelson in the afternoon foursomes matches. The foursomes match was never close, as Fleetwood delivered big putts to win holes, each time turning to the crowd in a crouch, dropping both arms and pumping them wildly. "I thought we played great all day but they started coming hard at us in the last few holes".

Furyk may sound bullish, but Europe will be confident of preventing the U.S. avenging Medinah with a "Payback in Paris".
