Ryder Cup

Europe retain the Ryder Cup, crushing USA 16½-11½

Europe continued their domination over USA in the Ryder Cup over the last decade by crushing the visitors 16½-11½ in Gleneagles. Coming in to the Final day of Singles matches leading by a dominant 10-6 scoreline, Europe picked up the vital points to ensure their win when 38 year old Jamie Donaldson beat Keegan Bradley 4&3 to push his team to 14½. Europe have now won the Ryder Cup three straight times, in 8 of the last 10 editions and have not been beaten on home soil in the last two decades.

The US came into Day 3 with their backs against the wall, and their task became even tougher when Rory McIlroy picked up the first win of the day, easily getting the better of Rickie Fowler, 5&4 to make the score 11-6 in favour of Europe.


USA seals impressive Junior Ryder Cup victory

The United States of America sealed a fourth successive Junior Ryder Cup title courtesy of a breath-taking 16 – 8 victory over Europe at The Blairgowrie Golf Club, where Amy Lee sealed the crucial point with a 6&5 win over Germany’s Alex Försterling.

Brian Whitcomb’s American charges entered the final day with a 7½ - 4½ lead and while there were some fleeting moments early in the day where it looked as if a European comeback may have been mounting, the visitors quashed any ideas of a ‘Miracle at Medinah’ repeat with devastating efficiency.


Golden duo hoping to bring Swede success to Blairgowrie

Marcus Kinhult and Linnea Ström arrive at the 2014 Junior Ryder Cup with Youth Olympics team gold medals in their pockets and they will be hoping to bring that Swede success to Scotland as Europe take on the USA this Monday and Tuesday at The Blairgowrie Golf Club.

The European team touched down on Scottish soil for the first time on Friday as they prepare to do battle with their American counter-parts, who landed in the ‘Home of Golf’ as holders of the prestigious trophy.

Kinhult and Ström, who together won the team Youth Olympic golf medal in China last month, are confident that they have a team that can finally wrest back the trophy in Perthshire next week.
