The United States won the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2016 thanks to a dominating performance from start to finish at the Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisconsin.
The 19–9 victory marked just the fourth time in the last 13 meetings that the US had defeated the Europeans in the event.
Team USA needed only 31/2 out of 12 points to score 14½ points to win the Ryder Cup on Sunday, winning the Cup with singles wins by Patrick Kentley, Scotty Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau. Colin Morikawa made a clutch birdie putt on 17 to earn a half point in his match, which ended a tie, allowing the Americans to win seven matches to play.
Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Daniel Berger also won their singles matches, while Justin Spieth added another half to tie for the final difference.
Rory McIlroy scored the first point on the board in singles for Europe, beating Xander Schöfel 3 and 2 in the opening match.
The United States entered Sunday’s singles with an 11-5 lead.
The US won three of the team’s four seasons, and Saturday afternoon’s four-ball match ended in a draw. All 12 Americans had already won a match, entering Sunday singles, where they took their biggest lead over Europe since 1979.
