The team played magnificantly over all the three days, with each and every one of them pulling for each other. Perhaps this element of a 'team' was one of the crucial differences between Europe and the US.
Montgomery as the senior pro led from the front, why oh why can he not reproduce this form in a major?
I saw Ton Lehmann interviewed after Europe had won and I have to say 'what a gentleman', magnanimous in defeat, he was a credit to his team. European Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam admited that he felt under great pressure to win the Ryder Cup, but praised his team for fulfilling their winning potential, after he had got soaked in champagne and downed a pint of Guiness in one on the balcony!
