Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2023 Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, Rome, Italy

This week’s Monday Memories looks back on a battling win by Team Europe at The Belfry in 2002, where Paul McGinley secured the decisive half point to see Europe win The 2002 Ryder Cup.

The teams were tied with eight points each heading into the Sunday singles matches and a thrilling day’s golf followed.

Stood on the 18th green with a 15-foot putt to win The Ryder Cup, McGinley duly delivered sparking some of the most memorable celebration in the event’s history as he raised his arms, jumped up and down and embraced his rushing teammates.

Speaking about that moment, McGinley said: “I wish everybody could experience that feeling. It was really special.

“I put my arms in the air and I saw Sergio in particular who was jumping up and down, so that’s why I did that stupid dance and started jumping up and down.

“It was a win for everybody. That’s the nice feeling that you have because you’ve made so many people happy.”
