Europe dominate in singles to regain Ryder Cup from the United States

Mickelson, making his record 12th Ryder Cup appearance, sealed the victory for Europe when he sent a shot into the water in his match, guaranteeing his opponents the 14½ points needed for a Cup victory.

"It's disappointing because I went 0-4, and that's four points to the European team", admitted Woods.

"It was wonderful", Molinari said.

"We took a really tough loss at Hazeltine a couple of years ago and that stung", McIlroy said.

Mickelson's play was so poor in his one match on Friday - a 5-and-4 loss in the afternoon foursomes to Garcia and Alex Noren - that he was sat out on Saturday for the second straight time on European soil.

The three dormie games meant victory was secure but Ryder Cup tradition demands a man who "delivers" the winning point and nobody has delivered like Molinari this week.

Rahm, who led after all but one hole, pumped his fists and screamed with joy after his winning four-foot birdie putt, which came after a three-putt bogey at the par-3 16th, left Europe two wins from victory. The Americans have never made up that much ground away from home, though they were the first to win after trailing 10-6, at Brookline in 1999 when they front-loaded the Sunday lineup with their biggest stars.

He became the latest Spaniard to help Europe to win the Ryder Cup as he beat the great Tiger Woods in his Sunday singles match. The former UCLA player went through Q-school as a reinstated amateur and turned professional again at the start of the season.

I thought this year would be different because they were surrounded by 10 of the best golfers alive, future hall of famers who will have plaques next to theirs in 10 or 20 years.

Kavanaugh Apologizes to Klobuchar after Exchange about Drinking
Christine Blasey Ford said during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. A day earlier, Klobuchar's questioning of Kavanaugh earned national notice in an exchange about his drinking habits.

"How do you sum that up?", European captain Thomas Bjorn said.

Golf - 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Guyancourt, France - September 30, 2018.

Two up with three to play, Rahm handed Woods a lifeline by three-putting the 16th, but then smashed a wonderful 356-yard drive down the 17th and hit his approach to three feet to set up a winning birdie.

"We loved coming out here and the fire and passion he has is infectious and it rubs off on me pretty well". They were supposed to end the 25-year wait to win in Europe.

'What I will say is that it will be going on a part of my body only Grace (his partner) will see, ' said Bjorn.

"Obviously there's a sour taste in our mouth to come over here now for 27 years and not be able to win on foreign soil", USA captain Jim Furyk said.

He split up the USA's most successful partnership at Gleneagles and Hazeltine in Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed and, while Spieth won three out of four with Justin Thomas, Reed was terrible paired with Tiger Woods.

In total, the Americans had played only eight competitive rounds at the course before the event, compared with 236 for Europe. "Playing against a team like that, that's putting that well, you're going to have to make a lot of birdies, and we didn't". "And I guess, unfortunately, they picked the wrong team". It feels so good to give something back after climbing on their shoulders in the past'. They did that a lot to us.

The delirious scenes afterwards included Ian Poulter dressing up in a pillar box outfit - he is known as The Postman because he always delivers - and the Englishman said mischievously: 'When I get home to Florida I'm going to put it on and post some letters to my American neighbours'.
