The Ryder Cup concludes with the Whistling Straits massacre

This is how golf is, this is the Ryder Cup. Of the miracle we have gone to the massacre, that of Whistling Straits. This will be remembered is 43rd edition of the Biennial Meeting between the United States and Europe, one of the most important sporting events that will be remembered this year by overwhelming American beating. It acquires the category of historic, and is that never before in the modern era of the Ryder Cup, a team had managed to exceed 18.5 points, never before a team had stayed with less than 9.5 points.

The blunt 19 to 9 in favor of the US is more than a defeat. A massacre with humiliation dyes, a cure of humility for the dominating Europe of the competition in recent years and a touch of attention to the future; You can not live on memories or past miracles. The day of individual was as hard as the partial of 8.5 to 3.5 in favor of the premises, a team representing one of the most promising generations in history, the average age of the American team is 29, Six younger than that of the European combination.

Precisely the six American novices; Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, Daniel Berger, Harris English and Patrick Cantley took a large part of the American victory's weight accumulating 15.5 points of the 19 Americans and was Morikawa, the author of the middle point in the 18th hole Viktor Hovland, a tie that put Point number 15.5 in the American marker and made them virtually winners from the Ryder Cup.

Since 1981, no American player had managed to add more than 4 points, and in this edition Dustin Johnson will go down in history as the great leader of the American team. He played all the matches managing to win the five points at stake, something that Larry Nelson had only achieved in 1979.

On the opposite side, to round up the debacle, the two Spanish players who had been the weak support of the combinator of Harrigncnton, they were screened by resistantly on the definitive day. Jon Rahm started overwhelmed by Scottie Scheffler, who won the first four holes followed. Already toward, he could never the number one of the world get into the game and ended up succumbing by 4 and 3. For his part, Sergio García, who followed his erratic line of yesterday's fourbirths, also lost his point against Bryson Dechambeau (3 and 2). RAHM ends up being the best European with a 3.5-point mark on five possible, while Sergio adds three of the four in which he was at stake standing the historical record of competition until 28.5.

Among the only three and a half points of Europe in the individuals highlighted Ian Poulter, who achieved his only point in the tournament against Tony Finau, Lee Westwood or Rory Mcilroy, who finally appreciated even if it was late in this Ryder, but he kept at bay during All day to a complicated rival as Schauffle. Rory's commitment to Europe was marked with his crying. He cried like a child after finishing the week with a spot on four possible. "I feel that I have disappointed everyone in this Ryder."

It was as decompensated, what was experienced in this week that even the American celebration became up to Tibia and the contained euphoria. Europe ended between the penalty and frustration and licks and the wounds of her watching arms for Rome in 2023.
