NEWPORT, Wales (AP) -- Europe has reclaimed the Ryder Cup, winning a thriller that went down to the final singles match.
The Americans rallied from a three-point deficit to tie the score, bringing the title down to the 12th match. But U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell made a clutch birdie putt at the 16th and was conceded his par putt at No. 17. Hunter Mahan flubbed a chip shot, then missed a last-gasp putt from off the green to save par.
The Europeans won 14 1/2-13 1/2 to reclaim the cup won by the Americans at Valhalla two years ago.
