WWW.IRISHGOLFER.IE Peter Finnan, on behalf of the team W hat a Sunday that was at Le Golf National! All the talk before the event was of the American Team and how strong they were but the European Team was quite simply outstanding in handing the USA side the second largest defeat in the history of the event since Continental Europe joined the fray in 1979. The team dynamic, unity and 'oneness' that Thomas Bjorn in- stilled into his European side won through for them which seems in stark contrast to the US team where rumours of arguments and physical stand-offs on the flight to Paris as well as on Sunday evening after the event show just how disjointed they may have been behind the scenes. The stars of the European show were undoubtedly Rookie Tommy Fleetwood and his dance partner Francesco Molinari. Winning four points from four in the fourballs and foursomes was unbelievable and it was fitting that Molinari was the one to snatch the winning point for Europe, For Bjorn, it was the culmination of two years of hard work. His attention to detail was superb but more over than that, he managed to gel a group of multi-millionaires together in a way not seen since McGinley did it at Gleneagles in 2014 and that was the difference in the end. If anyone knows of a place to sign a petition for MoliWood to be given advance captains picks for 2020, please let us know! It was the result we all hoped for but few expected but besides the scoreline, Paris provided a real treat for Ryder Cup fans around the world. RYDER CUP – ANOTHER AMAZING INSTALMENT IN EUROPEAN HISTORY
