Europe reclaims Ryder Cup after beating USA in France

Europe reclaims Ryder Cup after beating USA in France

It allowed him to maybe get some energy back, watch his teammates play a little bit, provide a spark as a veteran leader.

Bjørn cited this European team as among the continent's best in Ryder Cup history. He wound up losing both his matches.

Woods spoke to reporters on Saturday, talking about how frustrated he was with his 0-3 start at the Ryder Cup. He ended it by setting a more dubious Ryder Cup record with 22 losses. "This team has been incredible". "We were determined to do the job". We worked as a team and we knew we were up against very strong opponents, but we went out on the golf course and believed in ourselves and what we stand for as a team. "And you saw it on the course".

The monster stand behind the first tee has been considered such a success that U.S. officials are planning to switch the holes round at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin, next time in 2020.

Webb Simpson and Tony Finau, the lone bright spot among the wild-card picks for USA captain Jim Furyk, won easily.

England's Ian Poulter, Europe's wildcard talisman, birdied the 18th hole to beat world number one Dustin Johnson 2-up and put Europe on the brink.

"There's always a moment where it looks like a spark of light", Furyk said. "Then it just comes down to us playing and playing as well as we can".

The Europeans lost five of the first eight holes and wound up getting beaten 3 and 2 by Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson, but Garcia's passion stayed to the end.

Woods came into the event on the back of a first win in five years at the Tour Championship and supposedly more invested than ever before in the contest having acted as a vice-captain in the victory at Hazeltine in 2016.

"Thomas was a better captain, and their team out-played us, " Furyk said.

'I'm hoping that can turn the tide for us'.

"I just tried to do things well and be professional".

Stunning cameos from Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey and another rookie, Tyrrell Hatton, mean Europe are 4.5 points from regaining the trophy they lost at Hazeltine two years ago. Mickelson, ranked 192nd out of 193 players on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy, is not a good fit for alternate shot.

Thomas Bjorn picked him anyway, saying he was like the captain of a football team.

There was plenty of blame to go around, but Woods' name will show up at the bottom of the stat sheet, his 0-4 record there for all to see where the scoreboard is the ultimate judge.

The victory moved Garcia onto 24 1/2 points at the Ryder Cup - past Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer and Billy Casper, and with only Nick Faldo on 25 ahead of him.
