The European Ryder Cup Team, trailing by two points after two days of competition, mounted a memorable comeback in the final-day singles to win the 31st Ryder Cup Matches. Sparked by singles victories by unheralded Philip Walton of Ireland and Howard Clark of England, Europe finished with a 7 ½ to 4 ½ margin on the final day. U.S. rookie Phil Mickelson finished as the only unbeaten player in the Matches (3-0-0). Clark highlighted his 1-up singles victory over Peter Jacobsen with a hole-in-one on the par-3 11th hole. Walton edged Jay Haas, 1-up, after his American opponent's rally ended on the 18th hole. Haas, down three holes with three to play, holed out a bunker shot on the 16th and won the 17th with a par after Walton missed his five-foot par putt. But Haas' rally ended on the 18th tee when he popped his drive into the trees on the left side of the fairway, punched out, then spun his approach shot off the green. Haas failed to save par from a putt off the fringe of the green and Walton two-putted for bogey and the Ryder Cup.
