The U.S. Ryder Cup Team, down by one point after two days of competition, mounted a memorable comeback by winning six singles matches and halving two to win the 30th biennial Ryder Cup Matches. Led by rookie Davis Love III and veteran Chip Beck, the 15-13 victory was capped on the final day by Raymond Floyd sinking three birdie putts on the back nine to seal the triumph. Beck remained unbeaten in singles competition for his career (3-0) by rallying from a three-hole deficit to defeat England's Barry Lane, 1-up. Love, who suffered from putting woes throughout the week, edged Italy's Costantino Rocca, 1-up, making a six-foot par putt on the 18th green. The 51-year-old Floyd, the oldest Ryder Cup competitor in history, downed Spain's Jose Maria Olazabal in their singles match, 2-up.
