The US Ryder Cup team, demolished Europe today in the most lopsided Ryder Cup since its new format was put in place decades ago.
Yesterday we reported on the US crowd in Wisconsin breaking out in the National Anthem during the event.
The AP reports moments ago.
The Americans won back the Ryder Cup and perhaps a whole lot more Sunday, sending a strong message to Europe with a powerful performance from their youngest team in history.
Scottie Scheffler, one of six Ryder Cup newcomers for the Americans, took down the No. 1 player in the world with a 4-and-3 victory over Jon Rahm as the scoreboards around Whistling Straits quickly filled with American red.
The final blow came from Collin Morikawa, at 24 the youngest player on the team and already a two-time major champion. He holed a 3-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole that assured the Americans at least the 14 1/2 points they needed.
The celebration was on, even as the American were still keeping score.
The AP continued:
The old guy — Dustin Johnson at 37 — was pretty good, too.
Johnson became the first American since Larry Nelson in 1979 to go 5-0, completing his perfect week by beating Paul Casey.
The Americans were young, yes, and very good, with four of the top five in the world ranking. They finally played like it. Those four players — Johnson, Morikawa, Cantlay and Xander Schauffele — combined for a 14-1-2 record.
The final score was the US with 19 points and an all-time record since 1979.
