Ryder Cup

Sunday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the winners and losers on Sunday of the Ryder Cup? Let's take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys

Martin Kaymer

Birdie: Martin Kaymer

Twenty-one years after his idol and fellow countryman Bernhard Langer missed a five-foot putt that would have retained the Ryder Cup for Europe, the 27-year-old German faced a nearly-identical situation. This time, the putt went down to cap an incredible comeback by the Europeans. More amazing was that it was Kaymer, who had struggled in 2012 more than any player at Medinah this week and who had lost in his only previous match, who wound up sinking the decisive puttt. He may not be the world's top-ranked player anymore, but his confidence after clinching the Cup for an entire continent might be at an all-time high.
