Default gained a step on Chicago defenceman Sheldon Brookbank. He fired from
Europe needed to overturn a three-point deficit in Sundays 12 singles matches to claim an unprecedented fourth straight win in the biennial contest, but USA proved too powerful on the final day. Kawann Short Jersey . Although Darren Clarkes side won three of the first five matches convincingly, wins for Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Brandt Snedeker and Ryan Moore took the home side over the winning line. Highlights of the singles matches from the final day of the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine The final score of 17-11 was the biggest winning margin for Team USA since a team containing the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Johnny Miller, Tom Watson and Raymond Floyd won by nine points at Walton Heath in 1981. Here, we look at the best five singles matches after a feast of golf on Sunday...Sergio Garcia halved with Phil MickelsonThe first match of the day has turned out as good as advertised. Mickelson and Garcia played the best golf from start to finish. It was so good that Mickelson made four straight birdies but was only 1 up through five holes. Garcia won the first two holes on the back nine for a 1 up lead, Lefty responded with a birdie on the toughest hole at 12, and then it was a battle to the end. Ryder Cup veterans Mickelson and Garcia could not be parted after a fantastic 18th hole Garcia squared the match with a birdie on the 16th. Mickelson made a stunning 25-foot birdie putt on the 17th, and Garcia matched him from 10 feet. The 46-year-old five-time major champion, competing in a record-equalling 11th Ryder Cup this week, made an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole, and Garcia matched him again from 8 feet to halve the match. They combined for 19 birdies, and both would have shot a remarkable 63 in medal play. Mickelson says the USA must learn from the great experience of winning the Ryder Cup I love the Ryder Cup, said Garcia. There is nothing like it. I loved every minute of it, even all the bombs Phil was making on me. There were so many great things this week that I will never forget. Patrick Reed beat Rory McIlroy 1 upWith both players at the top of their game, this was a match that lived up to its billing. 13 of the 18 holes were halved, and a four-hole stretch on the front nine left the gallery breathless. Reed squared the match by driving the fifth green to 8 feet for birdie. They halved the next two holes with birdies, and after McIlroy holed a 60-foot birdie putt on the 8th Reed answered with a 35-foot birdie putt to halve. Reed held his nerve on the final green to beat McIlroy by one point The blistering action started to take its toll on McIlroy, whos putter cooled, starting with a 5-foot par putt on the 9th that would have won the hole. Reed went ahead with a 6-foot par on 12, McIlroy missed a 5-foot par that would have won the 13th, and Reed pulled 2 up with a birdie from the bunker on the 16th. McIlroy and Reed exchanged amazing putts and passionate celebrations With McIlroy in tight for a chance at a half, Reed closed him out with a 7-foot birdie.Were playing the Europeans, but at the same time we play golf with these guys every single week, Reed said. We want to beat them at their best, they want to beat us at our best. McIlroy produced some early magic as he played the perfect bunker shot on the 1st tee Brooks Koepka beat Danny Willett 5&4The only American rookie to qualify for the team, Koepka had the shortest of singles matches to take the homeside to within two points of victory. Koepka tried to reach the par 4 fifth hole in one but ended up driving his ball into a spectators rucksack during play on Saturday Masters champion Willett had a forgettable Ryder Cup debut although he struck first with a birdie on the second and still lead until Koepka holed out for eagle on 7 for a 1-up lead. Willett tweeted to say the behaviour of some home fans at the Ryder Cup proves his brother Petes controversial magazine article was right Koepka won three straight holes with a Willett bogey and two straight birdies, and he closed out the match by holing a 6-foot par to halve the 14th hole. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Martin Kaymer beat Matt Kuchar 1 up Kaymer showed some of the resilience that was missing from his game earlier in the week. Kuchar had four birdies in the opening seven holes to put the German former world No 1 on his heels, and this match appeared to be an American victory early. Top five Ryder Cup shots The five top shots at Hazeltine National Kaymer didnt give anything away and cut the deficit to 1 down when Kuchar bogeyed the 13th hole. Kaymer took it from there with three straight birdies to build a 1-up lead, and they halved the final three holes, by which time the destination of the trophy was already known. 2016 Ryder Cup: Singles scoring USA Europe Eagles 3 1 Birdies 61 60 Pars 116 115 Bogey or worse 20 22 Points 7.5 4.5 Ryan Moore beat Lee Westwood 1 upMoore went from being the final captains pick to clinching the Ryder Cup for Team USA a week later. He wasnt even on the team a week ago but wound up making the point that clinched victory for the American. Moore had two putts to beat Westwood on the 18th and win the Ryder Cup for the USA Westwood shook off his missed 2-foot putt that cost Europe on Saturday afternoon by staying in the contest and making putts at crucial times. Neither player was more than 1 up until Westwood made a birdie on the 15th hole to go 2 up and appear headed to victory.Moore hit to 7 feet on the par-5 16th for an eagle, he birdied the 17th to square the match and he won on the 18th when Westwood went bunker-to-bunker and made bogey. His point gave the Americans 14.5 points needed to win the Ryder Cup. Westwood looked to have put the painful end of day two behind him with some wonderful putting I mean, I dont even know. This is unbelievable right now, to actually get the point that clinches it, Moore said, who has won five US PGA titles, the most recent coming last month at the John Deere Classic. That birdie on 17 and then to win with the par on the last hole, its - honestly, I dont even know what to tell you. Its incredible.

It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. "I was really nervous, but right before the game when I was sitting in here," Berra said, "I just said, Go out, play your game and have fun. You have nothing to lose. "I put that excitement and nerves into positive energy." Russells shot from the blue line clanked off the crossbar and past Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, ending Calgarys 10-game losing streak in Chicago. The Flames won at the United Center for the first time since March 2008. "I saw a body in front and tried to get a hard shot off," Russell said. "I dont think hes seen it. Fortunately it went in." "The last few games weve played well but havent got rewarded," Russell added. "Tonight, we had a grinder-style game. Especially coming into a barn like this, I hope we can grab some momentum off this." Mike Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross scored in regulation for the Flames. Calgarys T.J. Galiardi missed on a second-period penalty shot. Chicagos Marian Hossa scored a power-play goal with 4:19 left in the third period to tie it at 2. Patrick Kane also scored for the Blackhawks, who had won three in a row. Crawford made 27 saves. The 26-year-old Berra was recalled from Abbotsford of the AHL on Saturday after the Flames waived Joey MacDonald. The 6-foot-4 Swiss goaltender was acquired in the trade that sent defenceman Jay Bouwmeester to St. Louis last April. Berra was sharp against the Blackhawks, making a handful of point-blank and flashy stops. "Im very proud for Reto," said Flames coach Bob Hartley, who has coached in Berras home country. "He played tonight the same way I saw him play a full year in Switzerland. Obviously, its not the same calibre, but the poise he showed throughout the game. "He never got rattled. The perfect control on every shot. The two shots that beat him were perfect shots. Great win." After a slow start this season offensively, Chicago had scored 24 times in its previous five games. But the Stanley Cup champions showed little of that explosive skill and tempo against Calgary. Vernon Butler Jersey. Although Chicago fired 44 shots at Berra, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville thought there werent enough quality opportunities. "We did put pucks at him, but we didnt get enough rebounds and we didnt get enough traffic," Quenneville said. "Certainly, he was pretty good at controlling those rebounds tonight as well." The Blackhawks outshot the Flames 18-11 in the scoreless first. Berra coolly swept away Chicagos routine chances and turned in a couple of tough stops, including a quick glove save on Andrew Shaw with 5:00 left in the period. Calgarys best chance came with 1:28 left, but Dennis Widemans shot capping a 3-on-2 break was smothered by Crawford. Galiardi was awarded his penalty shot -- the first for Calgary and first against Chicago this season -- at 4:06 of the second after he was hooked from behind on a breakaway by Hossa. He fired wide on the attempt. Kane opened the scoring, beating Berra on Chicagos 23rd shot at 6:25 of the second. After cutting across the top of the Calgary zone, Kane moved to the left faceoff circle and wristed a shot through a screen that fooled Berra on the short side. Cammalleri tied it just 50 seconds later. Left open at the edge of the crease, Cammalleri was able to deflect Widemans shot from the right point in midair and past Crawford. Cammalleri has seven points in seven games since returning from an upper-body injury that sidelined him for the start of the season. Glencross gave Calgary a 2-1 lead at 2:16 of the third on a shot that sailed past Crawfords glove, clanked off the right post and landed in the net. Glencross cut in from left wing and gained a step on Chicago defenceman Sheldon Brookbank. He fired from the circle and Crawford fanned on a glove save attempt. NOTES: Calgary also recalled D Chad Billins from Abbotsford, but he was a healthy scratch on Sunday. ... The Blackhawks were set to leave for Washington following the game, and will visit the White House on Monday to be recognized by President Barack Obama for their 2013 Stanley Cup title. ... Chicago C Michal Handzus missed his fifth game with an upper-body injury, but has resumed skating. ... Sitting out for Calgary were C Lee Stempniak (foot), D Mark Giordano (ankle) and D Chris Breen (abdominal).
