The 30th Ryder Cup Matches were held at The Belfry in Wishaw, Warwickshire, UK.

The United States team won the competition by a margin of 15 to 13 points. Europe took a one point lead into the Sunday singles matches in what was a close contest.

The U.S. Ryder Cup Team, down by one point after two days of competition, mounted a memorable comeback by winning six singles matches and halving two to win the 30th Ryder Cup, 15 to 13.

Led by rookie Davis Love III and veteran Chip Beck, the U.S. victory was capped on the final day by Raymond Floyd sinking three birdie putts on the back nine.

Beck remained unbeaten in singles competition for his career (3-0) by rallying from a three-hole deficit to defeat England’s Barry Lane, 1-up. Love, who suffered from putting woes throughout the week, edged Italy’s Costantino Rocca, 1-up, making a six-foot par putt on the 18th green.

The 51-year-old Floyd, the oldest Ryder Cup competitor in history, downed Spain’s José María Olazábal in their singles match, 2-up.
