Europe won the 2012 Ryder Cup but not without pulling out all the stops with great team play and spirit. Starting Sunday, the US led the European team by 10-6. Down by two more at one point on Sat., the Europeans made an incredible come back winning four key initial matches and four final matches on holes 17 and 18 on Sunday. Team USA had to get 4 and 1/2 more points to win the Ryder Cup, and Team Europe only needed 4 points as holder of the Cup for the final 12 singles matches. It was a see-saw match with Team USA again on the losing end as Europe retained the Ryder Cup.
Rory McIlroy arrived 10 minutes before his tee time, but still managed to win his point. Nicolas Colsarts four putted on #10 giving Dustin Johnson 1 Up. D. Johnson got the first Sunday points for the USA to make it 11-10. Then Justin Rose made a long birdie putt to go all square with Phil Mickelson, then followed with a birdie on #18 as Mickelson's approach rolled off the green for 11 all.
