With Europe retaining the Ryder Cup for a 10th time at Le Golf National in France, Sportsday Live’s Brian Moore’s counting down of the five most exciting moments from this week’s action in Paris.
The European pair of Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia finished with the best ever two teams over any European captain’s opening day, and a pair of rookies, each one scoring what felt like the win of their lives, kept the European bag very nicely topped. The rest of the Europeans were rather humbler in victory, but no less fulfilling.
We may have been talking about the late fading of Justin Rose in the fourth day’s singles, but the days following was certainly not shamefully dull for the Europeans. This was a Ryder Cup where the champagne flowed and the champagne gushed, as it poured at the end, and there were more tantalising moments to be had.
