With a dominating performance in foursomes, four ball, and singles play, the United States has recaptured the Ryder Cup with a 19-9 win after Sunday’s play at Whistling Straits.
The event wasn’t truly in doubt entering the Sunday Singles, with the Americans holding an 11-5 lead after the first two days of paired play. Dustin Johnson finishes a perfect 5-for-5, with Ryder Cup rookies Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele also pitching 100% scores in three appearances each on Friday and Saturday. The Americans also kept Rory McIlroy at bay, holding the Northern Irishman to 0-for-3 in foursomes and four ball play before his win over Schauffele on Sunday.
Jon Rahm was the standout for the Europeans, gaining 3.5 of a possible five points from some spectacular shotmaking and putting. All-time Ryder Cup points leader Sergio Garcia was also terrific with three points from four matches. But outside of the Spaniards, no one on the European team did nearly enough to retain the trophy.
The United States entered the tournament as about a -200 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, but were -10000 entering Sunday’s play due to the overwhelming deficit.
