U.S. Team Wins Ryder Cup in Upset

“I poured my heart and soul into this for two years, and my players poured their hearts into it for this past week, and I couldn’t be prouder of them. The golf was spectacular on both sides, and our guys just came out on top.”

--Paul Azinger, USA team captain.

“I got chills up my spine the whole day today and I’m loving every minute of it. I wouldn’t trade this for $10 million. This has been an experience of a lifetime.”

--Anthony Kim, USA teammate and Ryder Cup rookie that provided a spark to the team.

For the first time since 1999, the USA team beat a heavily favored European team.
