Emotions were running high for all concerned - if you missed Rory McIlroy’s reaction to his point, read more here.

23:15 , Tom Rostance

Steve Stricker: “I never won a major but this is my major right here.”

23:12 , Tom Rostance

USA captain Steve Stricker: “This is the greatest team of all time, right here. Tiger Woods has been a big part of this team as well so shout out to him.

“We had a lot of communication, these guys love each other and it showed. They came here with a mission.”

23:11 , Tom Rostance

Now it’s ceremony time.

Berger beats Fitzpatrick 1 UP

23:01 , Tom Rostance

And that makes it a record defeat - 19-9.

Berger v Fitzpatrick

22:59 , Tom Rostance

Matt Fitzpatrick sticks his approach on the 18th into the water. That’s a shame.

Spieth drew with Fleetwood

22:53 , Tom Rostance

Both men get close with their third shot and they agree to call it a half each.

It takes the scores to 18-9.

22:49 , Tom Rostance

The last two pairings are heading down the 18th.

22:46 , Tom Rostance

Phil Mickelson: “We got the right picks, the right guys, the right matchups. It’s been special to be part of this. It’s very different as an assistant captain, to be able to enjoy it and not have to perform! I’ve had a great time this week.”

Westwood beats English 1 UP

22:44 , Tom Rostance

Lee Westwood with a late surge and he’s won another point for Europe. Well battled.

It’s 17 1/2 - 8 1/2 now.

22:42 , Tom Rostance

Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington on Sky Sports: “They played very well, it’s a tough loss for us. They played better than us. The team did everything I could ask of them. Their spirits were high, they worked together, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

“It was always going to be a tall order, this was a strong US team and a lot of things went against us. The US had momentum all the time, you wonder if the crowds were part of that. The reality is the US played better than us. I can walk away comfortable with all my decisions. It’s a small consolation.”

‘They have outplayed us this week'

Ian Poulter on Sky Sports: “Congrats to Team USA, when you look at the points they have outplayed us this week. They owned each session and we were left a mountain to climb. You always feel you have a chance and we needed to come out strong, they played better than us. It was always going to be hard this week, and it was tough.

“Don’t set me off - it’s tough. You put a point on the board and that’s nice but it doesn’t mean anything. I’m unbeaten in singles but this is a team week and it’s deflating. We’ve got a good young team who are going to take this forwards. I wanted to come here this week and give everything, you don’t know if you will get the opportunity to go again.”

22:25 , Tom Rostance

A lot of class out there, Steve Stricker embracing Jon Rahm and Ian Poulter.

‘Enjoy it, you deserve it,’ Poulter says.

‘We do not like to lose'

22:21 , Tom Rostance

Dustin Johnson: “Ryder Cups are special, I didn’t think I would play five matches never mind win five. The team played amazing, we just wanted it more. I was the oldest, I am used to being one of the youngest, it was a different dynamic. We all have one thing in common - we do not like to lose.”

1 UP English v Westwood

22:20 , Tom Rostance

Lee Westwood with a chance to get a bit of blue. A wonderful shot.

1 UP Spieth v Fleetwood

22:17 , Tom Rostance

Those still out there are fighting hard for every point. Jordan Spieth holes out on 15 to go back ahead in his match.

22:09 , Tom Rostance

There are some beers being chugged down by the 18th now...

Poulter beats Finau 3&2

22:08 , Tom Rostance

Ian Poulter remains unbeaten in Ryder Cup singles, a rare win, but like Rory McIlroy earlier on he looks bereft. Sinks to his knees.

The score is 17 1/2 - 7 1/2.

22:07 , Tom Rostance

US captain Steve Stricker: “This is a special day for everyone involved. This Ryder Cup means a lot to everyone on both sides and to put in a dominant performance, these guys played great, they were fired up and they deserve it.

“I sure feel like this is a new era. This is a young group, they come in with a lot of fire, they are friends and they get along well.”

Johnson beats Casey 1 UP

22:04 , Tom Rostance

And now Dustin Johnson becomes just the third man to win all five points in a Ryder Cup weekend. Fantastic play.

Thomas beats Hatton 4&3

22:04 , Tom Rostance

A fabulous chip from Justin Thomas leads to a concession from Hatton and that’s another point on the board.

‘Let’s get to 20'

22:02 , Tom Rostance

“I woke up this morning and I was trying to tell the guys, ‘Let’s get to 20 points,’ because this is going to be the next era of Ryder Cup team for the U.S. side,” Patrick Cantlay said, finishing an unbeaten week with a win over Shane Lowry.“We’ve got a lot of young guys. I think they’re going to be on teams for a long time, and I wanted to send a message.”

22:00 , Tom Rostance

Here’s the moment these two fine young golfers shared a point and the moment USA won the Cup back.

Koepka beats Wiesberger 2&1

Still plugging away, Paul Casey pulls a hole back with a fabulous putt.

1 UP Morikawa v Hovland

21:37 , Tom Rostance

Morikawa v Hovland

21:32 , Tom Rostance

Collin Morikawa on 17 - his tee shot rolls to within about four feet! Wow. What a shot.

‘It’s electric'

21:25 , Tom Rostance

Bryson Dechambeau to Sky Sports: “Sergio is an unbelievable player, it was a tough fight. This course suits me well and I hit a few bombs. I am proud, there’s nothing more to it. I fed off the crowd with every shot, it’s electric.”

Dechambeau beats Garcia 3&2

21:20 , Tom Rostance

Sergio shakes hands and the US need just half a point more to regain the Ryder Cup.

‘I just wish I could have done a little more for the team’

21:19 , Tom Rostance

Rory McIlroy was emotional in his post-match interview, here’s what he said to Sky Sports in full.

“I just... I love being a part of this team. I love my team-mates so much. I should have done more for them this week.

“I am glad I put a point on the board for Europe today, but I just can’t wait to get another shot at this.

“It is... by far the best experience in golf and I hope little boys and girls watching this today aspire to play in this or the Solheim Cup because there is nothing better than being part of a team, especially the bond we have in Europe.

“No matter what happens after this I am proud of every single one of the players that played this week, I am proud of our captain and vice-captains.

“I just wish I could have done a little more for the team. It has been a tough week.”

English v Westwood

21:14 , Tom Rostance

21:12 , Tom Rostance

The win is well within sight now, with USA on track for 20 points.

21:06 , Tom Rostance

Sergio Garcia manages to have a joke with Bryson Dechambeau as they come off the green, the American goes three up with three to play. Too good.

Finau v Poulter 2 UP

20:58 , Tom Rostance

The postman making a late charge to pick up another point...

20:54 , Tom Rostance

Patrick Cantlay: “It was a dogfight today but I played really well. Shane Lowry charged at me and I thought he would. All the guys get along really well.”

20:54 , Tom Rostance

Scottie Scheffler: “I played very solid golf today, got off to a good start and only made one mistake, on 12. I didn’t know what to expect this week, I was just looking forward to it and it’s been a great week.”

Cantlay beats Lowry 4&2

20:50 , Tom Rostance

The points coming thick and fast now as Lowry concedes.

Scheffler beats Rahm 4&3

20:49 , Tom Rostance

A statement point. Jon Rahm was never in the match.

20:48 , Tom Rostance

The standard is just relentless as Cantlay teases an iron shot down to within sight of the hole.

20:42 , Tom Rostance

Jon Rahm not happy - he throws his club to the floor and complains to someone in the crowd for putting him off through his backswing. A tough day for the world number one.

Schauffele v McIlroy 3 UP

20:08 , Tom Rostance

Schauffele can’t follow McIlroy in as a matter of fact so Rory is now three up.

Schauffele v McIlroy 2 UP
