Europe wins Ryder Cup in Rome with help from McIlroy and Fleetwood

Europe regained the Ryder Cup title on Sunday with a 16.5-11.5 victory over the United States in Italy. Led by Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood, Europe dominated the tournament, winning eight of the previous 11 Ryder Cups.

McIlroy played exceptionally well throughout the week, winning his fourth match and contributing to Europe's success. Fleetwood sealed the victory with an impressive drive on the 16th hole, while Rickie Fowler struggled and eventually conceded a short birdie to Fleetwood.

The Europeans celebrated their victory, as they have done on many occasions before, on their home soil. This win marks their fifth title in the past seven tournaments.

On the other hand, the American team was hoping to end their 30-year losing streak away from home. However, they were unable to overcome Europe's dominance and will have to wait until 2027 for another chance to reclaim the title.

Europe entered the final session with a five-point lead, which no team had ever overcome on the final day. Although the Americans made a brief comeback, it was not enough to secure victory. Jon Rahm, Tyrrell Hatton, and Viktor Hovland were among the European players who contributed to the team's success.

Fleetwood's drive on the 16th hole played a crucial role in securing the win for Europe. After Fowler's shot into the water, Fleetwood made an impressive putt, prompting Fowler to concede. With this victory, Europe celebrated their triumph and looked forward to future competitions.

Overall, Europe's victory in the Ryder Cup showcased their dominance in the tournament. While the American team had high hopes of ending their losing streak, they were unable to overcome Europe's strong performance. The Ryder Cup remains one of the most thrilling events in golf, and fans eagerly await the next edition in 2027.
