Revealed: How America won Europe the Cup
Sunday 30 September 2012
The Ryder Cup is as close as golf gets to being a contact sport. On the opening morning, the nervous players on the first tee belted the balls into the crowd and the spectators jostled each other to get to the little white orbs among the trees.

A year ago he was the toast of Congressional, a 22-year-old supernova ripping up the tournament template with a pair of 65s en route to a record low score. How America loved Rory McIlroy, the tousled haired cherub with a murderous swing and the confidence to go for everything.
