Team Europe won the Ryder Cup. In a Marco Simone golf and country club packed beyond belief and full of enthusiasm, to give the decisive half point to beat the United States (bringing the score to 14.5-10.5 for the Old Continent ) was English Tommy Fleetwood who mathematically won half a point against the American Fowler. “I’m excited. It’s been a long journey, a fantastic journey.” Team Europe captain Luke Donald jumps for joy and thanks his team for winning the Ryder Cup.

«It was stressful to see the US fight until the end today, hats off to them. But I’m so proud of my boys. We formed a bond from day one and they gave me everything. They trusted me and did everything for me.” «We started great, then we lost some matches. We were looking at the scoreboard thinking “where will we find 14 and a half points? Then the boys made us crazy with joy”.

“It’s the first time I’ve cried on a golf course in my entire life. I can’t say three words without starting to cry.” An emotional man tells Sky Sport Francesco Molinari, after Team Europe’s victory in the Ryder Cup, which ended today at Marco Simone. For the Italian, non-playing vice-captain, it is the second success, after the one as a player in 2018. «It was tough, but with an exceptional team made up of exceptional guys we managed to bring it home. It’s an incredible story we have with the Ryder Cup.”
