The US team won their 43rd Ryder Cup win by beating the European contingent 19-9 at the Whistling Straits Club.
WISCONSIN (AP) – Americans have regained Ryder Cup and probably much more this Sunday by sending a clear message to Europe with an astonishing performance from their youngest team in history.
Scottie scheffler, one of the six rookies of the American team of the Ryder Cup, surpassed the world number 1 with a 4 to 3 victory against the Spanish Jon rahm, as the scoreboard at the Whistling Straits was filled with the red of Eunited states.
The final blow was given Collin morikawa, who at 24 was the youngest player on the team and is already a two-time major champion. He landed a 3-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole that ensured that the Americans reached the required 14 1/2 points.
From then on they just had to keep the margin.
“I got up this morning and tried to say to the guys, ‘Let’s get to 20 points’ because this is going to be the new age of Ryder Cup for Americans, ”said Patrick Cantlay, who finished a week without losing by beating Shane lowry.
Tony Finau He said the night before these duels that this was “the big one” because Europe they had won nine of the last 12 matches and the Americans have many new faces without any injuries from watching Europe celebrate through the years.
It was a crushing defeat.
The fans saved the biggest applause for the captain of USA, Steve Stricker, the Wisconsin native, who has been in command of major defeats in the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup.
“It is a new era for the golf of USA“, said Stricker. “They are young. They come with great passion and energy, good game. They are just good. “
Americans are young, and of course, very good. They have four of the five best players in the world. The difference was that they finally played like that.
