It takes two teams to make a great match and this was an epic.
This time the Europeans got across the line first largely because they had a purple patch at the right time - the climax of the match.
The US team played some amazing golf early on and, despite DL III whipping up the crowd pre tourney, the Chicago fans were 99% positive. The US players' (and DL III's ) reaction to the outcome did them proud as they were so dignified in defeat. I hope we can deal with defeat as well when it's our turn.
I have nothing but respect for a great US team and the brilliant Chicago crowd.
PS If any of you guys come over to Gleneagles let me know and I'll buy you a beer
