Tommy Fleetwood enjoyed the winning moment as Europe regained the Ryder Cup from a battling United States on Sunday, wrapping up a 16½-11½ victory despite a blistering American singles charge.

The USA remain without a win on European soil since 1993 while neither team have lifted the trophy away from home in 11 years.

With Europe needing half a point to get over the line, Fleetwood moved 2-up against Rickie Fowler with two holes to play after the American dumped his tee shot on the short par-four 16th into the water.

Fleetwood struck his drive into the heart of the green and calmly stroked his eagle putt to the hole side to ensure Europe a seventh consecutive home victory, before going on to win 3 and 1.

Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland led the way with early victories in the Rome sunshine and Jon Rahm also snatched half a point from Scottie Scheffler on the 18th green.

The Americans were attempting to pull off the biggest Sunday Ryder Cup comeback, having trailed 10½-5½ at the start of the day.

But they never recovered from being swept 4-0 in the opening foursomes on Friday, squashing American hopes that their crushing win in 2021 was the start of a period of dominance.

It was a Ryder Cup full of exceptional individual performances, as well as several players who struggled to find their best form in Rome.
