SPAIN’S Sergio Garcia triumphed on the final day of the Ryder Cup as Team Europe romped to a 16½ – 11½ win over their American counterparts at Gleneagles.
On Sunday’s final day, Garcia came from behind to defeat Jim Furyk in their singles tie bringing back memories of his critical comeback win over the same man at Medinah two years ago.
Earlier in the tournament, European captain Paul McGinley showed faith in the Spaniard when he paired him with world number one Rory McIlroy for the anchor leg of the opening morning’s fourballs.
This was Garcia’s seventh appearance at golf’s most prestigious tournament, of which Europe have won five.
