PV Sports Desk : Europe regained the Ryder Cup by rounding off a dominant performance on Sunday to beat the United States 17.5 to 10.5 at Le Golf National.
Here, AFP Sport takes a look at five key moments from the 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup:
Finau’s 16th tee shot on first day
Tony Finau/Brooks Koepka (USA) bt Justin Rose/Jon Rahm (Europe) 1-up — Thomas Bjorn’s hosts started strongly in the opening fourballs on Friday, but Koepka and Finau flipped around the first match as the US claimed
an early 3-1 lead.
The turning point was when rookie Finau’s tee shot on the par-three 16th hit a railway sleeper separating the green from the water, spun into the air and settled three feet from the hole.
He made the putt to level the match, and the Americans went on to win it on 18 as Rose found the water.
“It’s the best break I’ve gotten when it meant something. I think that one will be replayed for a long time to come,” said Finau.
