An unbelievable comeback, with so many heroes. Can't believe four europeans won the 17th & 18th.  With some of the American spectators applauding European missed putts, they got exactly what they deserved. But congratulations to some americans, e.g. Mickelson applauding Justin Rose MEGAPUTT on the 17th hole. Just one of those putts going the other way could have given victory to the Americans, but for the first time in the match, the luck was with Europe. Or maybe it was Seve. Was he helping Martin Kaymer on the 18th?

What I cant get my head around was the booing that greeted European puts & victories.

Ok shout support etc for your team , but to boo & jeer to such a level & from such a large part of the gallery.

 

It made the victory so much sweater

It wasn't 12 v 12! It was Europe v 12 golfers and 50,000 loud mouth Americans. What a way to quieten them down. What a great game of golf. Credit to the American Golfers. But yet again their crowd were over the top.

Seve would be so proud, one of the greatest come backs of all time, what more can you say.

Incumbent on Brits not to match the US supporter's crass ignorance, at Gleneagles in 2014. Typically British supporters are passionate but fair as was exhibited in the Olympics. Even the Barmy Army know how to acknowledge excellence in the opposition.  Ir wasn't just the booing and jeering, it was the failure even to applaud any success by the Euros.  And then to vanish at the end to leave the whole place to the Euro fans was unforgivable. There is an ugly side to the American culture that seems to worsen by the year. They were once so welcoming and generous.

It would be nice if someone could shut up that idiot who always shouts ''In the Hole'' everytime an American hits the ball, even off the Tee on a par five. Well done the European Team I could not believe

the come back.

The difference between the usa and the europeans was perfectly summed up when Justin Rose beat Phil Mickelson. Rose started to celebrate then noticed Mickelson coming to shake his hand. Rose stopped celebrating, removed his cap and shook Mickelsons hand. Cant imagine the Usa doing that. I seem to remember them jumping all over the green at Brookline some years back. What goes around comes around. Well done Europe.

What a crying shame after all the chanting and Barracking put out by the Yanks must be a bitter pill to swallow for the egotistical supporters and the USA team on their home turf with such a convincing lead. 

Eat that suckers

Like everyone is saying brilliant to see us put them in there place, all that  IN THE HOLE as they Tee off on a par 5, and USA USA great to shove it back down there throats, and great to our supporters chanting ALLWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE , Classic, mind you most of them had disapeared by then, Only really ever had respect for Michelson and he showed his class again by applauding Rose as he sunk a putt, credit to you Phil, please teach the rest of America the same etiquete.

Well, GOOD ON YOU!  Good manners & pride was shown by the europeans, Time to show how rude the American crowd can be!!!

Note, everywhere you go they expect you to tip for terrible service, but over here, NOTHING is good enough for them, always complaining, LOUDLY!!!!! TIP? forget it, they always want discount BUT DON'T TIP!!!

The exception being the lovely Golfers who stayed around Portrush. But then if they are friends of Graeme & Darren, I would expect them to be just like our Irish boys!
