Europe need just four points to regain Ryder Cup

RIATH AL-SAMARRAI IN ROME: The finest golfers of the US started the day as a joke and they ended it as a punchline. But hats off to those Americans – they are not giving up this Ryder Cup to Europe without a fight.

If they are to pull it off, and what a sizeable ‘if’ that is, it will require the biggest capitulation this contest has ever seen.

ICYMI: Rory McIlroy ANGERED in clash with Patrick Cantlay's caddie

OLIVER HOLT IN ROME: When Rory McIlroy walked down the hill from the 16th tee to the fairway as the shadows lengthened yesterday evening, it felt like one of the great scenes in the emotional hinterland of this competition.

Lines of noble cedars stood like sentries, silhouetted against the fading light and thousands of fans sang McIlroy’s name and waved their caps in the air. It felt as if we had been transported back to the Matthews Cup Final and a golden age of sport.


McIlroy is all smiles this morning

Rory McIlroy is the talk of the town this morning after his heated exchange with Patrick Cantlay’s caddy last night. He was dragged away from the encounter but has emerged gleeful as ever in the Italian sun this morning.

Good morning and welcome to the final day of the Ryder Cup
