EUROPE WIN 14.5 TO 13.5 IN DRAMATIC RYDER CUP COMEBACK

Team Europe equalled the biggest final day comeback in Ryder Cup history to win The Ryder Cup 14 ½-13 ½ and stun the USA, the team and their vociferous supports, in the golfing cauldron that was Medinah, Chicago today..
A tearful European captain José María Olazábal said: “When I saw we had a chance coming down the stretch I was very emotional. The boys have done an unbelievable job. I have a few thoughts for my friend Seve and this one is for him.
“That’s why I’ve always said that this event is so special. Last night I told them I really believed we could do it and they just believed in themselves. That’s why we’re here as winners.”

This was the 32nd Ryder Cup contest. It was probably the best so far.
