2016 USA Ryder Cup Winners Team Special
We are delighted to offer this stunning team special collage to celebrate the USA winning back the Ryder Cup with a 17-11 victory at Hazeltine National Golf Club, Minnesota from September 30th to October 2nd 2016.
The victory was all the more sweet after years of European dominance that had seen the USA only win 2 of out the previous 10 encounters – 1999 (Brookline) and 2008 (Valhalla), with Europe arriving at Hazeltine on the back of 3 successive wins.
The USA appointed David Love III as captain for the 2nd time after his dramatic loss in the iconic “Miracle at Medinah” Ryder Cup of 2012. A task force had been created with the aim of turning around American fortunes and a heavyweight group of vice-captains, including Tiger Woods was assembled to wrestle the cup out of European hands.
A dream start in the opening Foursomes saw USA race to a 4-0 lead. Young guns Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth led the way with a win over Europe’s strongest pairing Open Champion Henrik Stenson and Olympic Gold winner Justin Rose. Europe fought back hard over the next 2 sets of matches but late USA wins in the four balls on Saturday afternoon gave USA a vital 3 point advantage going into the final day singles.
The singles matches will long be remembered for the incredible standard of golf played under the most intense pressure. A phenomenal encounter in the opening match between Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed was won on the last by USA talisman Patrick Reed. Phil Mickelson could only halve his match with Sergio Garcia despite 10 birdies over the 18 holes. USA dominated the singles with the winning point secured by late captain’s pick Ryan Moore, with a comeback win over Lee Westwood having been 2 down with 3 to play.
Late wins for USA players added to the margin of victory with the USA winning 17-11.
The team special collage is available as a 28” x 20” photographic print with all of the names and caption information in place. The collage is also available in a 32” x 24” frame ready mount and fully framed at 34” x 26”.
