Tommy Fleetwood secured the final half point against Rickie Fowler to give Europe a Ryder Cup victory at the Marco Simone Golf Club in Italy on Sunday.
The Europeans entered Sunday’s game with a lead of 10½-5½; No team had ever lost a five-point lead on the final day of the Ryder Cup. Team Europe ensured that this trend continued.
On Sunday, the European team needed just four points to secure victory. Viktor Hovland picked up a point with a win over Collin Morikawa. Jon Rahm earned half a point by tying Scottie Scheffler. Rory McIlroy and Tyrrell Hatton picked up a point each with wins over Sam Burns and Brian Harman respectively. This meant the host team only had to score half a point to win the event.
But the Americans didn’t go down without a fight, as Max Homa picked up a win over Matt Fitzpatrick. But an untimely charge into the water from Fowler saw Fleetwood secure the half-point they needed and ensure Team Europe’s continued dominance of the Ryder Cup on their home continent.
The United States will host the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black in New York.
