Europe completed their mission in the singles to win the 40th Ryder Cup 16½-11½ against the United States at Gleneagles. After the miracles and the 17th green shootouts, and all the gut-wobbling drama that is usually the staple of a Ryder Cup crescendo, it all ended uncharacteristically easily. Captain Paul McGinley's side led 10-6 going into the final day and reached the 14½ needed to win the Cup outright when Welsh rookie Jamie Donaldson beat Keegan Bradley 4&3. This was the Gimme In The Glen, Keegan Bradley conceding Jamie Donaldson's putt halfway down the 15th fairway to confirm the point that Europe needed,with almost half the matches still out on the course and almost half the course trying to get to that match. Still, as always, it was great to watch, with some magnificent shots. Roll on Chaska Minnesota 2016.
