Sunday’s Ryder Cup Matches by the Numbers

My friend Brett Zimmerman compiled these numbers from Sunday’s Ryder Cup singles matches. It it easy to see why Europe produced the biggest comeback in the competition’s history.

Europe made 3 eagles and 48 birdies, US had two eagles (both by Jason Dufner) and 42 birdies.  Europe was -25 and the US -14.

The biggest discrepancy came in the first 5 matches out, all Europe victories.  Europe made two eagles, 26 birdies, and seven bogeys while the US made 19 birdies and 12 bogeys.  Europe was -23 and the US was -7.

They must have finally adjusted to the green speeds.

It was mentioned how the final two matches had four guys who had earned 0 points in the team matches.  Easy to see why, on Sunday all 4 were +1 for their rounds.
