Chokes on the 18th. Gutting.

Can't really call that choking, just very unlucky that the tee shot finished where it did.

Mcilroy’s putting cost him. As usual.

Looks like we’re home and dry here now.

Brilliant from Poulter, no way he should be beating Dustin Johnson.

Molinari, Poulter, and Fleetwood were all tremendous.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Never, ever rule Ian Poulter out in a matchplay scenario, the guy is just tremendous at them. The regularity with which he secures a captain's pick even though he's nowhere near the top of the leaderboards is telling.

Love how hyped up he was getting as well. :wub:

17.5 vs. 10.5 is an absolute thumping as well. Brilliant weekend for Europe.

Superb result. Loved them mobbing Molinari after he won.

I'll have to have a look to be sure but I'm fairly certain that he qualified for most Ryder Cups he played in. He was a smidge away from qualifying for this one.

For whatever reason the Ryder Cup does seem to inspire him, I'm not he stands a chance against an in form Dustin Johnson though.

He's played in loads of Ryder Cups, I think he's qualified for the majority but has also been a captain's pick a number of times I think. I was reading that he had one of the all time best records for a captain's pick for either side - 8-0-2 or something like that - going into this tournament, in which I think he was also a captain's pick, so that's got to be at least three times!

He is inspired by the Ryder Cup, but more importantly he tends to inspire the rest of the European team and power them to victory. See: Valhalla, Celtic Manor and Medinah.

He should be a mandatory pick for Ryder Cups.

Dustin is world number one but that doesn’t count for much. Look at Tiger’s record in the Ryder cup. It’s very poor.

Tiger is more the exception than the rule, I don't think he gets on well with the team aspect. Poulter doesn't hit it very far by modern standards and DJ is just on another level to him. Matchplay can be a bit of a leveller but Johnson just wasn't at the races today.

Not taking anything away from Poults, he doesn't just get points but gets them at times that shifts momentum.

It's a thing in American golf along with "buh bah booyee!" and the like. It genuinely makes it painful to watch.

That’s the first time in four singles matches that Johnson has lost so it was a fair point.

I can't believe people are ripping into Patrick Reed for the shush celebration, it was clearly a bit of theatrics paying homage to the match with Rory. He bowed to the craft afterwards and applauded them.

I thought Butch didn't get get it because he's old.
