Having been beaten in Paris three years ago (a loss of 10½ vs. 17½), the Americans were very serious about revenge in Wisconsin. They finished the first day with a 6: 2 lead, but after the second day they were already in the lead with 11: 5.
The home team thus needed only 3.5 points out of 12 singles in the last day to regain the title. The victory of the US team was confirmed in the fifth game, in which Colin Morikawa scored half a point against Viktor Hovland.
In the US team with six debutants, all players helped each other to win, with each scoring at least one point.
The 10-point victory for the Americans is the biggest triumph in the history of the 43rd Rider Cup. Previously, there were two cases with nine-point victories, winning twice for Europe and once for the United States.
The starry US team celebrated the 27th Rider’s Cup triumph on Sunday, while Europe has 15 titles. The two matches ended in a draw. The next tournament is scheduled for 2023 in Rome.
ASV: Collin Morikawa, Dust Johnson, Brison Desambo, Brooks Kepka, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantley, Daniel Berger, Harris Inglis, Tony Finau, Zander Chofel and Jordan Spitz.
