Europe wins the Ryder Cup led by Jon Rahm

The European side took home the Ryder Cup in Rome by a resounding score of 16.5-11.5.

The spectacular opening match between Jon Rahm and the world number one, Scottie Scheffler on the final day of the Ryder Cup was emblematic of the tournament as a whole. The USA left it all on the course, but a very solid European side was able to maintain its advantage. The Americans had to overcome five points, something that no team has achieved to date, and ultimately lost by a final score of 16.5-11.5.

Spectacular tie between Rahm and Scheffler

Rahm and Scheffler put on a show, which ended in a final tie, half a point for each, though it was ultimately not enough for the Americans. The Spaniard, motivated and rested after taking Saturday off, made it clear from the beginning that he not scared of the moment, opening the round with a birdie. Scheffler, who did not want to be the first number one to finish a Ryder Cup without winning a match, tried his best, although he had to settle for the final draw. Between the two, they made 10 birdies and made several fantastic shots.

Fleetwood with the final blow to win the Ryder Cup

With Europe half a point away from closing the tournament, the U.S. pressed, and Cantlay defeated Rose (2&1), Koepka defeated Aberg (3&2) and Homa defeated Fitzpatrick. At that moment, Fleetwood landed several devastating blows while his opponent Powell hit the ball into the water, giving the Europeans the victory. This is the 12th European victory since 1979, with nine for the American team.
