Ryder Cup Results 2021
USA 19 v Europe 9
Whistling Straits, Kohler, WI
The Americans were the better team from the very first shot at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, winning four of the five sessions and tying the other.
It produced a blowout of historic proportions, as they matched the largest margin of victory since 1975 and set a new standard for Ryder Cups that included Continental Europe (since 1979).
Dustin Johnson became the first American to go 5-0-0 since Larry Nelson in 1979, while rookie Collin Morikawa (3-0-1) earned the clinching half-point in Singles play. He was one of six rookies on this U.S. Team, all of whom contributed at least a point to the American cause.
The U.S. led 11-5 heading into Sunday and won consecutive home Ryder Cups for the first time since 1979 and 1983.
On the European side, Lee Westwood became the all-time leader in Ryder Cup matches played (47) while Sergio Garcia set a new mark for overall matches won (25).
