CHASKA, Minn. (AP) – The United States certainly didn’t look like a team that hadn’t won the Ryder Cup in eight years.
The Cup belongs to the Americans following a strong showing in singles play, leading to a 17-11 victory over Europe. Patrick Reed got the ball rolling with a 1-up win over Rory McIlroy in the first match of the day. The Cup-clinching point came from captain’s pick Ryan Moore, who wasn’t on the team a week ago. Other U.S. winners on Sunday were Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedecker, Brooks Koepka and Zach Johnson.
The best match of the day finished in a tie. Phil Mickelson had 10 birdies and Sergio Garcia had nine as they halved their match.
