Europe Completes Improbable Comeback, Wins Ryder Cup

Martin Kaymer of Germany dropped in a 6-foot putt for the 14th point that Europe needed to retain the Ryder Cup on Sunday at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Ill.

Europe defeated the United States, 14 ½-13 1/2

Europe came back from a 10-6 deficit, the same hole the United States came back from in the 1999 Ryder Cup. European players Luke Donald, Ian Poulter, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Paul Lawrie all set up the improbably comeback by winning the five opening matches on Sunday.

The 2014 Ryder Cup will be Sept. 26-28 at Gleneagles in Scotland.
