1997: It might of only been Day one Fourball's but every point matters as Darren Clarke and Thomas Bjørn showed with these celebrations in 1997, Europe would go on to secrue a 14.5-13.5 victory.

2002: When you hole the winning putt there's only one way to celebrate if your Paul Mcginley, jump in the lake of course.

2004: Now a Ryder Cup veteran and legend, 12 years ago Ian Poulter was a rookie but he knew how to celebrate.

2010: Graeme Mcdowell holed the winning putt at Celtic Manor, here he is before being mobbed by on the green by the masses.

2012: The Miracle at Medinah is probably the greatest comeback in European history, Lee Westwood and Rory Mcilroy prepare to storm the green after Martin Kaymer holed the winning putt.

2014: Probably one of the most unique ways to celebrate gaining the winning point, Jamie Donaldson rode Thomas Bjørn into a press conference.
