    IAN'S ANALYSIS

    Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter has defended Europe captain Padraig Harrington after the record breaking 19-9 defeat.

    Poulter told Sky Sports: “The toughest bit about all of this is this is going to be hard because Paddy will be questioned and that is not fair.

    “He has done a great job but we have been outplayed. To what he has given to his captaincy he has done a really nice job.

    “Paddy [Harrington] has done an amazing job. Paddy and [his wife] Caroline have given us a team atmosphere and incredible bonding team room.

    “That room and group of players we had this week are special guys. It is not fair when you look at the score.”

    SCORE REMINDER

    Sorry to do this to you, Europe fans.

    But here's a reminder of how the Ryder Cup played out score wise.

    It's not a pretty sight.

    POOR RORY

    Former women's pro Paige Spirinac has reacted to Rory McIlroy's heartbreaking interview.

    The 28-year-old tweeted to her near half-a-million followers: "We don’t deserve Rory. What a class act."

    After winning one pro tournament in 2016 Spirinac quit playing professionally, and is now a social media personality with over three million Instagram followers.

    But it seems not everybody was as sympathetic towards McIlroy as Spirinac was.

    One golf fan replied to her saying: "He’s a good professional but he’s was awful all week. Tears doesn’t mask the performances."

    While another simply claimed: "Embarrassing really!"

    ROR EMOTION

    Rory McIlroy broke down in tears as he apologised to his Ryder Cup team-mates for his shocking week – despite winning his singles match.

    The four-time Major champion could barely speak and covered his eyes with his hands during a heartbreaking interview with Sky Sports.

    While saying sorry for his own play, McIlroy made an emotional appeal to boys and girls watching to pick up their clubs and be the stars of the future.

    The Northern Irishman, 32, said: "I should have done more for them [my team-mates] this week. I'm glad I put a point on the board but I can't wait to get another shot at this.

    "It is by far the best experience in golf and I hope little boys and girls watching this today aspire to play in the event or the Solheim Cup, because there's nothing better than being part of a team.

    "No matter what happens I'm proud of every player, our captain and vice captains. I wish I could have given more. I'm glad I got a point but it's been a tough week."

    DIRE STRAITS

    Europe were handed a record-breaking 19-9 Ryder Cup hammering as Steve Stricker's Ryder Cup team ran riot at Whistling Straits.

    Padraig Harrington and his players must have felt like crying every time they looked at the scoreboards.

    The water level in Lake Michigan might have risen by a few inches from the outpouring of emotions, with the Americans also weeping tears of joy after a record triumph.

    And it gets even more upsetting when you realise this was the youngest ever American team, with an average age of just 29.

    AND an average world ranking of NINE!

    AND it was a team containing six rookies, who are only going to become even tougher to beat in future matches.

    That adds up to compelling evidence that we are on the verge of an era of American Ryder Cup dominance, to rival Europe’s glorious sequence of seven wins from the nine precious matches.

    Of course, some things will be different when the American gladiators fly over to Rome to do battle at the Coliseum – sorry the Marco Simone course – in two years time.

    KOEPKA SEALS ANOTHER

    Koepka almost hits a hole in one on 17 and is gifted a tap-in birdie. That's game over against Wiesberger with a 2&1 victory.

    That was one of the shots of the tournament.

    Morikawa: "It was a full team effort but to come out on top feels really good. You can feel the fans, you can take that energy and momentum.

    "Without him (Stricker), who knows how this week could have gone."

    DELAYING THE INEVITABLE

    You can't question the spirit of this European team. Hatton sinks a long birdie and moves 3down with 4 to play.

    Poulter moves 3up over Finau. A superstar on a Ryder Cup Sunday.

  • The Sun

    PAUL IS NOT LOST

    Casey won't go down without a fight.

    He rolls in a birdie on the 16th to win the hole and is 1down with 2 to play. Not much of a smile though by the Englishman.

  • The Sun

    MORIKAWA MAGIC

    Brilliant, brilliant by Morikawa on the 17th. He sends his tee shot to around 2-feet and taps it in for birdie.

    And that ladies and gentleman is game, set and match. He's 1up going down the 18th and USA only need a halve for the Ryder Cup.

  • The Sun

  • The Sun

    POINT FOR AMERICA

    Bryson DeChambeau takes another point for USA with a 3&2 victory over Sergio Garcia.

    He might be erratic from the tee, but the big-hitter was excellent today.

    Just half a point needed now for the Reds to win the Ryder Cup.

    USA 14-6 EUROPE

    BRILLIANT HOVLAND

    This guy is such a talent. He rolls in a birdie on the 15th and moves all-square with Morikawa.

    Lee Westwood is back to all-square with English.

  • The Sun

    Poulter is firmly in control and is 3up over Finau.

  • The Sun

    PLAYING FOR PRIDE
