It's Official: Europe Wins Ryder Cup 2018, Tiger Woods Goes Winless

Team USA's golf struggles in Europe continue as the Americans lost another Ryder Cup on foreign soil. Europe has defeated the U.S., claiming the needed 141/2 points to win during singles play Sunday with several matches still underway.

In the end, Europe won with a blistering final score of 17 1/2 to 10 1/2. The European team dominated the 2018 Ryder Cup from its start on Friday.

Europe's victory was secured when Phil Mickelson hit a ball into the water on the par-3 16th hole against Francesco Molinari. Mickelson then conceded the match, giving Europe the win with matches still in play on the course. Mickelson finished this Ryder Cup 2018 winless as did Tiger Woods. Both players were captain's picks for the event, held every two years.

Woods as 0-4 in France at Le Golf National, the 2018 Ryder Cup home. In Sunday's singles action, Woods lost to Spain's Jon Rahm, who claimed a 2-and-1 victory on the 17th hole. Woods was coming off his first PGA win in five years, but the Tour Championship victory last Sunday may have taken some momentum.

The American team began Sunday with long odds, facing a 10-6 deficit. They have not won a Ryder Cup in Europe since 1993.

Sergio Garcia set a Ryder Cup record with his third victory in France. Garcia posted on Sunday at 2-and-1 win over America Rickie Fowler, giving him a total of 25.5 points in Ryder Cup play -- more than Nick Faldo's previous record of 25 points.
