Team Europe entered Sunday with a considerable lead in the Ryder Cup after dominating the Friday and Saturday Foursomes, but Team USA still had a slim chance to make what would have been the greatest final-day comeback in the tournament’s history.
Tommy Fleetwood put an end to that possibility with a 3 and 1 win over Rickie Fowler to clinch the title. Team Europe went on to win 16 1/2 to 11 1/2 to defend its home turf at Marco Simone Golf Club and reclaim the Ryder Cup after losing the last tournament on U.S. soil in 2021.
Fans were ecstatic about the result and showed their pride by jumping in the water.
