Europe has reclaimed the Ryder Cup, winning a thriller that went down to the final singles match.
The Americans rallied from a three-point deficit to tie the
score, bringing the title down to the 12th match. But U.S. Open
champion Graeme McDowell made a clutch birdie putt at the 16th and
was conceded his par putt at No. 17. Hunter Mahan flubbed a chip
shot, then missed a last-gasp putt from off the green to save par.
The Europeans won 141/2-131/2 to reclaim the cup won by the
Americans at Valhalla two years ago.
