Well that is all we have time for on this Ryder Cup live text. United States have the victory, and an emphatic one at that, and its time for reflection for Team Europe who didn't quite get it right this year.

Thank you to all of you who have tuned into our coverage of the 2016 Ryder Cup. We'll have all the reaction from Hazeltine on the way over the next few days so look out for that. But until next time, goodbye.

22:42

Now Davis Love III, who is the victorious captain:

I'm just proud of these guys. They had a lot of pressure on them for the last two years.
And every time we picked a guy, there was more and more pressure on the team and more and more questions, and I'm just proud the way every one of them played. It was a great team effort. I've never seen a team come together like a family like this. So much has happened over the last week. Unbelievable golf. The Europeans played just some stunning golf. I told Rory McIlroy it was best month of golf I think I've ever seen. I'm just proud of them. They hung in there all week.

22:40

Let's get some reaction to USA regaining the Ryder Cup. Here is Europe's captain Darren Clarke:

At the end of the day, the American guys played better that we did. They
holed the putts when they had, and we lipped out. But that's happened the other way around for quite some time. The guys gave it all. They are trying everything, they
tried as hard as they could. You can't ask for anything more as a captain. We're obviously bitterly disappointed, but credit to Davis and his team for the performance of the day."

22:37

Kaymer has two putts to win the match and he goes within five inches, confirming the win. United States 17 Europe 11 is the final result, the hosts' biggest margin of victory for 35 years.

22:35

One match still out on the course, where Martin Kaymer is assured of a half-point in the 11th match. Either way, USA will inflict upon Europe their biggest defeat since 1981. It's been some effort from Davis Love III's men.

22:17

Zach Johnson beats Matthew Fitzpatrick 4&3 in the bottom match. Just two left out on the course.

22:10

Moore has three downhill putts to win the Ryder Cup for the United States. Two to in the match with Westwood outright. The Tour Championship runners-up leaves it a foot short and the concession sees the United States regain the Ryder Cup.

22:09

Westwood with a putt for a par, but frankly it is all academic at this stage. Moore will have a putt for the win and to claim the Ryder Cup. The Englishman misses to the right.

22:06

Dustin Johnson misses a putt to win the Ryder Cup for the United States. Delaying the inevitable, you fancy.

22:03

Martin Kaymer has come back from three down after eight to lead by one with three to play. It's the fighting qualities this European team are built on.

But Snedeker claims a 3&1 win and that draws them to 14. Half a point away.

22:00

Europe's players have to attack fairways and greens now, and that could draw the USA closer to victory if the errors continue to flow. Sullivan does out-drive Snedeker however at the 17th.

21:56

Ryan Moore pulls level with Westwood and that match will go down the 18th too. Snedeker assure USA of a half at least in match number eight. It's a case of who will hit the winning blow now.

21:55

Garcia now with a putt to guarentee a half on the 18th. After seeing Mickelson role in his birdie this is a pressure putt, but he responds. What a contest and it's half a point each.

21:54

To the 18th where Phil Mickelson has a 15-footer to assure at least a half, with Garcia is close. The five-time major champion has been superb today and he makes his 10th birdie of the day! Amazing.

21:51

Kaymer now all square with Kuchar in the 11th match. Bit of fight from the German, but is it too little too late?

21:49

Mickelson's approach to 18 goes beyond the pin but doesn't spin back. Chance for Garcia.

Ryan Moore pulls one back against Lee Westwood, who is one with two to play.

21:46

Just two away now are USA after Koepka makes par at the 14th to beat Danny Willett 5&4. It's been a sorry week for The Masters champion.

21:44

Kaymer and Wood reduce the leads of Dustin Johnson and Kuchar to just one. A little bit of fight from Europe as USA hone in on the 14 1/2 points they need to regain the Ryder Cup.

21:42

And Garcia holes it! A lifeline for Europe? Maybe not, but that match will go down the 18th.

Andy Sullivan misses a chance to half the lead of Brandt Snedeker, but he shaves the left of the hole. Another chance goes begging.

21:40

Mickelson putting essentially to assure USA of a half. From the shadows the ball plummets down the hole and now Garcia has the burden of holing out.

21:38

Rose misses from around 12 feet and Fowler holes one from all of 18 inches to win the match. USA just three points away now. Meanwhile, Mickelson does match Garcia and he's inside the Spaniard at 17.

21:36

Rickie Fowler misses from 20 feet to win the match on the 18th against Justin Rose. Chance for the Olympic champion.

Meanwhile, Garcia is on the green at the 17th and it is advantage Europe in his match with Mickelson.

21:34

Danny Willett misses a putt for a half on the 13th and he is now dormie five against the ruthless Brooks Koepka.

21:33

Garcia with two putts to level his match with Mickelson and he doesn't take any risks and that match is all square with two to play. Some fight at last.
