U.S. Wins Ryder Cup, Ends Europe’s Streak

The United States took home the 41st Ryder Cup this weekend at Minnesota’s Hazeltine National Golf Club, snapping a frustrating string in which European teams had taken eight of 10 trophies. The 17-11 victory came as the first for an American squad of elite golfers since 2008 and was led by Davis Love III. For the first time since 1975, every U.S. player scored at least one point during the biennial men’s golf competition—an achievement last accomplished by a team led by Arnold Palmer, who died one week ago.
