Stricker, Furyk. and Mickelson were supposed to be the veteran core that you could depend on in singles play and all three were colossal letdowns. Congrats to the Europeans, but the Americans, in particular those three, should all be embarrassed.

Dont quite remember the one in 1999, but reading about it the Europeans also led 10-6 but only need 4 points to retain it and lost it. This one goes up there with it.

Stricker no points, Tiger half a point, Furyk one point. Terrible.

That was one of the most entertaining afternoons of sport I've seen. Amazing drama.

The bolded part is incorrect. Mickelson went 3-1 and was for the most part brilliant. He lost on 18 to Rose because of some unbelievable putting. Nothing to be embarrassed by.

Stricker played lousy all tournament, I will give you that.

Also, the idea of a Ryder Cup 'closer' is extremely poor logic. You put your best players out first because that guarantees their match counts. The later you put out a player the greater their match doesn't count.

I feel silly even having to explain that, but the 'closer' logic is somehow justified which is just baffling. The only good reason would be for TV ratings.

agreed.

Put your best out to win the match, and hope the guys going out last mean nothing

Unbelievable how quickly the projected scores kept changing. Europe looked right back into it early, then there was a point where I think the US were up in 5 or 6 and it was really starting to look a formality. Easy to say as a Euro, but one of the best afternoons of sport I remember.

Not just one of the best days of golf, but one of the best days of sport I've ever seen.

We were sensational, we were like giants. Rose's late 30 yarder was a thing of immaculate beauty.

It's been the best year of sport I've known for the UK. Glory in the Tour De France. Glory in the Olympics. Glory in the tennis. Rory going #1 and taking the USPGA. Then a Ryder cup victory lead by the Brits. Hell, even Chelsea won the Champions League.

IMO, and this is only my opinion, Mickelson should have never been in a position to lose that one. He has more talent and experience than Rose and was depended on to gain one point in the singles day. The previous days mean nothing if your team is not on top at the end. I will concede that of the three, he was the closest to what was expected of him. Stricker and Furyk both played some of the worst golf of their careers. They both had opportunities to win and neither took them.

The Brits seem to be the ones that want this tournament the most and it shows in their results.

Poulter carving out a reputation as one of the best match play golfers ever. Good for Europe.

Stricker blew it. Prior to this year, he was the best putter on the planet. It's been a rather weak year by his standards, and at 45 I can't see him being on another Ryder Cup in all honesty.

I imagine the next captains will be David Toms for USA and Thomas Bjorn for Europe.

I said it before, he is the new Colin Montgomerie. His legacy will be in the Ryder Cup, because he doesn't hold it together during majors. Hope that he does pull through, he had 3 T-10's this year.

Europe wasn't winning majors until the Irish guys showed up, so this also means more to them. Only 1 European other than people from Ireland (the island) has won a major since 1999, and it just happens to be the guy who sank the winning putt today.

First of all congrats to the Euros for an unbelievable comeback. Wow. Not sure about the Americans lineup order today but it's to late to worry about that now.

Now I'm not blaming Tiger or anyone individual on the loss but Tiger just doesn't do well in this thing. He has a 13-16-3 record since he began playing in it. Hell out of 32 Ryder Cup matches he has won a whopping 14 and a half points. Something isn't right here. The last one the US won in 08' he was out with his knee injury. Play him in singles and keep away from doubles where he is 7 matches under .500.
