Tiger Woods took the lead in his match here on the 17th green, but it wasn't enough as Europe Martin Kaymer sunk his put on the 18th to win the Ryder Cup

MEDINAH, Ill. -- What looked like a potential runaway for the Americans turned into a thriller as Europe, playing in memory of Seve Ballesteros, dominated the Sunday singles and won the 39th Ryder Cup at Medinah, 14 ½-13 ½.

Martin Kaymer made a clutch, six-foot par putt on 18 to defeat Steve Stricker, 1 up, and give the Europeans a 14-13 lead. That guaranteed them at least a tie, which meant they would retain the Cup because they won the 2010 matches at Celtic Manor in Wales.More »

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Phil Mickelson soaked up a scene he knows all too well as he climbed the steep hill toward the 18th green at Augusta National to claim another green jacket.
