García made his 1999 Ryder Cup debut, and has appeared in nine other tournaments.

In 2006, he remained unbeaten on the first two days, becoming only the second player after Ian Woosnam to win all four points in his four-ball and four-ball matches.

Entering this year’s competition, Garcia scored as many points as the entire US team combined.

During the last Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in France in 2018, Garcia surpassed Nick Faldo’s record to become Europe’s all-time leading points scorer with 25.5 points.

However, although he passed Faldo for the number of points, it took him until Saturday to pass him for most of the matches he won in the Ryder Cup.

Faldo won 23 matches, but now García is the record holder, having achieved his 23rd and 24th match victories in Wisconsin.

Asked about breaking the record after his round, Garcia said it was “fantastic”, although Europe’s plight at the Ryder Cup was his only focus.

When he was told about it on the 17th hole, he said he “didn’t know the record and I didn’t care.”

“It’s great but it’s not. We need more wins and unfortunately we can’t find them at the moment,” he told the media.

“Obviously John (Rahm) and I, we did what we had to do and what we could, and unfortunately it looks like the American people are playing a little bit better than us, and that’s a shame. But you know Well, we haven’t given up. We’re going to fight as hard as we can until the end. Hope we have a good afternoon this afternoon and see what happens.”
