Ryder Cup: Francesco Molinari sets incredible new record after Ryder Cup victory

Thomas Bjorn was diplomatic when asked about this clear splinter in the USA team yesterday.

"The European side played some exquisite golf and flat-out beat us - but they beat us on the course". He's 9-19-1 with partners, and lost at singles for the first time since 1997.

However, they were comprehensively outplayed by Europe from Friday's foursomes onwards and some of Furyk's decisions in relation to his selection of pairings came into question.

Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka reportedly got into a heated argument and almost came to blows hours after the Ryder Cup ended, but a new report from French publication L'Equipe claims the issues between the two former U.S. Open champions began on the team plane from Atlanta to Paris prior to the event.

Reed doesn't mind being portrayed as the Ugly American as long as it means winning the Ryder Cup.

Meanwhile, European pick Sergio Garcia, who hadn't shown much form all season, went 3-0-0 to become the winningest player in Ryder Cup history. They hit key shots and knocked in the clutch putts. "He's still a really tough competitor".

"The issue's obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me", Reed said, adding, "I don't have any issue with Jordan".

"Let me put it this way, it's going to go on a part that only Grace [Bjorn's girlfriend] will see", replied the Dane. It is going to sting for a while. On the other hand, Patrick Reed did win his singles match, so this wasn't his fault. He and I know how to make each other better.

Woods looked like he could use it.

McIlroy led for large spells of the match but things fell apart for him at the last as he sent his third shot into the water after getting into bunker trouble. A few hours later, when the entire team conducted a post-match news conference, Woods looked exhausted, as if he could fall asleep at any moment. "We went through a horrid spell in the 1970s and '80s where we didn't win a whole lot, and that's still pretty recent and fresh in our memories".

That the world-class European players won at home (and for the ninth time in 12 matches) wasn't a surprise; it was the decisive manner in which they prevailed - with all 12 players earning at least a point - that left Furyk and the rest of the Americans searching for answers. I saw firsthand how bad of a team player he was. But Woods never brought that same speed and cohesion to the event. The Ryder Cup was unkind to him. "He said he would be ready [Sunday]".

Patrick Cantlay: Strong ballstriker who was quietly risen to 22nd in the Official World Golf Ranking. It makes sense if that is all he does.

He said it was "not a lot of fun". "Their players played better".

He played so poorly this year that he failed to qualify for the PGA Tour's postseason. He said he was blindsided when Spieth was paired with Justin Thomas, a longtime friend making his Ryder Cup debut before a European crowd.

So yes, Woods had a lousy Ryder Cup. And No. -1 ranked Dustin Johnson went 1-3, with none of those three ever playing together. Jordan Spieth lost at singles for the sixth time in six tries in both Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup competition.

The point being, the Ryder Cup isn't like projecting a Masters leaderboard. - Analyst Brandel Chamblee, blaming the American defeat on inaccurate driving. After all he endured to get back here, and after the success he had along the way, the Ryder Cup pain is undeniable.

Even in a defeat just a point short of the all-time record, some were still sticking to this.
