Harrington was one of Thomas Bjorn's five vice-captains as Europe regained the trophy with a 17½-10½ triumph at Le Golf National in Paris on Sunday.

How and why generally still escapes the Americans, no matter how many task forces and committees they form, but the European dominance was unmistakable here at Le Golf National.

"I'll work with the PGA of America and I'll work with our Ryder Cup committee and I think we'll keep improving".

The future for the Americans clearly lies in the hands of their top points scorer Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, a consistent performer over the last three events.

"You know this golf course has 18 holes, right?"

Rahm, who led after all but one hole, pumped his fists and screamed with joy after his winning four-foot birdie putt left Europe two wins from victory. "And now that it has happened, I'm just so happy". We worked as a team.

Reed went 0-2 during team competition alongside Tiger Woods, lowlighted by his struggles to find the fairway during Saturday morning's session.

Kerem Demirbay's ball found Belfodil and he had acres of space before he slotted the ball under Ederson and into the net. Fernandinho did fire at Baumann but City lacked control and Walker was booked for a bad challenge on Kaderabek.


All manner of explanations have been given over the years, none of which really apply now, if they ever did: he doesn't care; he doesn't like playing with a partner; he's awful at team events. We were about us as a team and what we do.

"Europe did a good job on a golf course they know pretty well. It was calm, determined, focused, fun". The Europeans have now claimed the Ryder Cup in four of the last five tournaments.

After the event, Thomas did offer lengthy congratulations to Europe on Twitter. Reed is the one who is so convinced of his Ryder Cup greatness that he thinks the team's strategy should have been constructed around him. "That is hard, especially when you go away".

It's not just the team.

"It's a great group".

The video, which was shown in the team room to all players and caddies, features words of encouragement and advice from past captains Brian Huggett, Sam Torrance and Jose Maria Olazabal.

Leading 10-6 going into the 12 singles matches, there were some nervous moments on an exciting afternoon as the Americans occasionally threatened a comeback.

Lucas Tousart, suspendu contre Nantes, sera a priori plus frais et devrait récupérer une place de titulaire au détriment de Diop. Shakhtar: Piatov - Matvienko, Kryvtsov, Rakitski, Ismaily - Stepanenko, Maycon - Marlos, Taison (C), Fernando - Moraes.


Justin Rose noted that with the match taking place on French soil, rather than a traditional golfing heartland such as Scotland, where the fans are "very knowledgeable, very respectful", there might be more of a "mainstream" sports crowd.

That set the stage for Molinari to clinch the win, making his 5-for-5 history after Mickelson found water at 16 and conceded, setting off a champagne-spraying celebration.

"He said he would be ready tomorrow, and I put him in a position where I hope that our guys get off to a fast start and put him in that position". The pressure is like nothing else they experience. "I'd like to play with him so we can talk about old times and plan our next fishing trip".

"But hats off what they (Europe) accomplished this week". So loud, supportive, and classy to both the Europeans and USA team. There's nothing more you can say.

But in the end, name value mattered little as Europe confidently batted the U.S. charge away, winning the Ryder Cup by a heavy margin of 17.5 points to 10.5 points.

Even after the Team Europe Era T2G highlighted last week - it's still going, by the way - they still don't rate our tour or our players.
