  • United States regain the Ryder Cup.
  • Ryan Moore claims wining point to claim first Ryder Cup since 2008.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Birdie chance for Lee Westwood at the 15th and he takes it. He goes 2UP in the seventh match against Ryan Moore. Two up with four to play. His teammates need to follow him.

Andy Sullivan misses a putt to win the hole at the 14th, but makes his half coming back the other way. Those really have to start dropping for Europe, if they're to stand any chance this afternoon.

Fowler and Rose alongside each other in the 18th fairway.

Cabrera Bello secures the point for Europe which, albeit temporarily, draws them one point behind the United States. But the rest of the leaderboard is more of less all red. Trouble ahead.

Chris Wood misses a birdie putt to cut Dustin Johnson's lead in half. Putts just haven't fallen for Europe this afternoon.

But there is another point on the board as Cabrera Bello goes within a handful of feet at the 16th. Walker should be snuffed out there.

Fowler makes his par putt and that ensures he will go down 18 with a half in the bag. Rose still had a two footer to make for his own three but he makes no mistake.

Here comes Rose's putt which is up hill, about 10 feet and he goes past by about two feet. Not threatening the hole that one and the Olympic champion is despondent.

Fowler one up with two to play but Rose well placed on the 17th green. Fowler will putt first from around 20 feet towards the lake. He misses way to the left and that opens the door for Rose.

Reed and McIlroy congratulate one another after a stunning exchange in their singles match.

A second point on the board for Europe through Thomas Pieters, who beats J.B. Holmes 3&2. But the news for the holders isn't much better from there. Brooks Koepka now leads Danny Willett 4UP.

Patrick Reed beats Rory McIlroy 1 UP

Flawless finish from Reed as he putts home after a superb iron shot. These two have had a tremendous battle today, akin to two heavyweights going blow for blow for a world title.

3 up Brooks Koepka vs Danny Willett

Masters champion Willett is sinking a bit here, he is now three behind Koepka who has just extended his lead on the 10th.

Henrik Stenson beats Jordan Spieth 3&2

It looks like Spieth won't be able to take this with the officials informing him if he steps in the water he'll move the ball. With no other option, he concedes defeat to Stenson and Europe close the gap! But there is plenty more to do.

Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson 2up

Jordan Spieth is having to step into the water to get anywhere near his ball after a wild tee shot. He has his trousers rolled up and everything.

1up Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

A lifeline for McIlroy and Europe? Reed's lead is reduced to one after a poor chip shot from the sand. McIlroy taps home to win the hole and to the 18th we go.

1 up Brooks Koepka vs Danny Willett

Big putt from Brooks Koepka who moves ahead against Danny Willett. The Masters champion missed a big shot on the ninth, inviting the American to take the lead.

Europe need a couple of matches to start going their way. It's all square in two but they trail in six.

2up Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

On the 16th, Reed sinks his first birdie since the eighth hole before McIlroy misses the chance to half it. The American is now two up with just two holes remaining and there is a slight hint of dejection beginning to creep into the Northern Irishman's game.

Things are looking good for the USA at the moment. Europe need a big momentum shift.

Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson 2up

Frustration for Henrik Stenson, he misses the chance to move three up against Spieth.

1UP Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

Another chance passes McIlroy but. From 12 feet out, he his shot breaks to the left and another chance to draw level is gone. Three holes to play here.

Phil Mickelson vs Sergio Garcia A/S

The momentum may have shifted USA's way over the last few rounds but Garcia has just wiped out Mickelson's advantage on the 10th. Having watched the American make par, he holds his nerve to sink a 10 footer, cueing a few fist pumps from the Spaniard.

1 up Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

A reprieve for McIlroy; Reed's putt to extend his lead is the worst we have seen from him today. That's less a criticism and more of a testament to the ridiculous level we have seen from these two today, but he'll be irked he didn't sink that.

Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson 1 up

Stenson's lead is back to one after he missed from seven feet out. Spieth makes no mistake with his shot and coolly sinks his shot. Is this the momentum shift USA needed?

USA now lead in six of our 12 matches. Plenty of golf still left to be played, however.

1 up Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

Reed lands in the bunker off the tee and bogeys on his last shot. Big chance for McIlroy to wipe away his lead but his six footer breaks wide to the left and he too bogeys the hole.

Dustin Johnson vs Chris Wood A/S

Brilliant from Dustin Johnson, who putts in from 30 feet out to leave him on the brink of drawing level against Chris Wood. From the edge of the green, Woods' effort is far too short and the USA pull another one back.

1 up Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

On the par 13th, Reed digs himself out of trouble from the bunker with a shot that should be enough for par.

Plenty of red on the board now with Reed leading McIlroy for the first time today.

1 up Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy

Reed makes no mistake, guiding home from 12 feet out.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

Uh oh. McIlroy misses his par putt on the 11th and Reed has the chance to take the lead. Huge shot here for the American...

JB Holmes vs Thomas Pieters A/S

Superb from Pieters! He sets himself up for an easy with a wonderfully judged approach shot across the fairway. He knocks home from a couple of feet out and we are all square here again.

Dustin Johnson vs Chris Wood 1 up

Chris Wood watches as Dustin Johnson misses his putt and that sees him take the fifth hole.

Brandt Snedeker vs Andy Sullivan a/s

Andy Sullivan stormed into the lead in his showdown with Snedeker but the American has responded brilliantly since then, sinking birdies on the fourth and fifth to wipe out his lead.

Rickie Fowler vs Justin Rose 1 up

On the eighth, Rose moves four under for the day to restore his advantage.

Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson 1 up

Terrific stuff from Stenson! Spieth settles for par, but after a dodgy start which landed him off the fairway, he completes a brilliant recovery to sink his birdie shot.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Andy Sullivan and Chris Wood all lead in their matches with Phil Mickelson the only American currently with some red on the board.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

So close from Reed on the 10th! A delightful chip uphill from the rough rolls just past the pin. It would have been enough for him to take the hole but the miss allows McIlroy to notch home from a couple of yards out to take a half.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

Reed falls two feet short of his birdie shot on the ninth, leaving the door open for McIlroy to take advantage. He just overcooks his putt, however, and we stay all square.

1 up Phil Mickelson vs Sergio Garcia

Agonising for Garcia! After watching Mickelson putt home from 15 feet out, the Spaniard watches his stop dead right on the lip.

Phil Mickelson vs Sergio Garcia A/S

Mickelson strikes back on the third, sinking a birdie on the par five to haul Garcia back.

Nick Howson at Hazeltine

Not for the first time this afternoon noise from elsewhere on the course comes just as a player addresses the ball. Reed's birdie at the eighth could be heard all around. Europe though, building some momentum.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

Amazing from McIlroy! A birdie from 75 feet prompts more roars of celebration from him, and more shushes directed at the American crowd. But Reed is going blow for blow with him and birdies himself from 20 out. The two share a first bump as they stay at five under par. What an extraordinary duel this is.

Brandt Snedeker vs Andy Sullivan 1 up

Brilliant approach play from Sullivan on the first and he taps home to draw first blood against Snedeker.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

This was always going to be the most compelling watch, wasn't it? Reed jumps in the air to celebrate sinking a fine 12 footer. How does McIlroy respond? Brilliantly. He drains a three footer and turns to shush the baying American crowd.

Ryan Moore vs Lee Westwood 1 up

After a Saturday to forget, Westwood takes the lead on the first hole, taking full advantage after wild card pick Ryan Moore bogeyed.

Jimmy Walker vs Rafael Cabrera-Bello 1 up

Rafa goes one up on the third, coaxing home a birdie to put some more blue on the board.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

McIlroy sinks a birdie, can Reid keep up with him? Yep, he follows suit and waggles his finger at the Northern Irishman as if to tell him he is going nowhere.

JB Holmes vs Thomas Pieters A/S

On the fourth, Pieters sinks another birdie to wipe out Pieters' lead. He's well and truly over those nerves from the opening hole.

Phil Mickelson vs Sergio Garcia 1 up

Nice and easy from Garcia, he seals his birdie shot on the opening hole and his countryman Cabrera-Bello is within a whisker of doing so in his match against Walker, but watches on as his 12-footer rolls agonisingly off the edge of the hole.

As Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia get started, here;s how things look with four matches underway.

Patrick Reed vs Rory McIlroy A/S

A superb drive from Reed from the tee left him from within seven feet of an eagle. McIlroy does all he can do to ensure he isn't pegged back, sinking his birdie shot but Reed holds his nerve and levels the contest again.

Jimmy Walker vs Rafael Cabrera-Bello A/S

Big let off for Cabrera as Walker passes up the chance to convert from five feet out.

Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson A/S

Spieth started flawlessly here but has missed a birdie shot here. Stenson takes full advantage, making his birdie shot on the third.

Rickie Fowler vs Justin Rose 1 uP

Sensational from both men on the second. Fowler makes up for that ropey start on the previous hole, hitting long and spinning it back to within five feet of the pin. Rose has to match him but does so effortlessly, albeit leaving himself with a slightly more difficult birdie shot uphill.

Patrick Reeds vs Rory McIlroy 1 up

What a shot from Reid on the fifth! From the tee, he drives it long and drops it within 12 feet of the pin.

2 up JB Holmes vs Thomas Pieters

Pieters' nervy start continues, he's now lost the first two holes with Holmes finishing up with a birdie.

Rickie Fowler vs Justin Rose 1 up

Brilliant from Rose, he takes the first hole with a shot to spare, easing one in from 12 feet out.

Nick Howson at Hazeltine

Such is the insatiable appetite for success, US fans have just gone mad after seeing Patrick Reed chip in from the fairway, by the first tee big screen. Only problem is it was a replay from his eagle during yesterday's fourballs. Never has such huge noise disipated so quickly.

Jimmy Walker and Rafael Cabrero-Bello are just about to get underway; here's how things look at the minute.

Ryder Cup singles round

Patrick Reeds vs Rory McIlroy 1 up

Europe pull one back thanks to McIlroy, who makes no mistake from eight feet out.

1 up JB Holmes vs Thomas Pieters

Pieters misses his bogey shot after a nervy first hole and Holmes has the lead.

Patrick Reeds vs Rory McIlroy A/S

So close for McIlroy! There is plenty on pace on his shot from a good 60 feet out but it is racing right towards the centre of the pin. There is just too much pace on it however, taking it over the hole and back out.

Nick Howaon at Hazeltine

The noise has ratcheted up another level on this third morning and thanks to that birdie from Jordan Spieth the atmosphere has swelled further. Three matches out on course and already red on the board - and you need only put your ear to the ground to know the USA have started well.

JB Holmes vs Thomas Pieters

Very nervous third shot on the opening hole from Pieters; his chip is struck well wide of the line and with plenty of pace on it, it trickles away horribly.

JB Holmes and Thomas Pieters are now underway and the former is the latest to overhit his approach shot, finding the bunker.

1 up Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson

First blood to USA on the final day! Spieth, right on the edge of the green, slides a superb birdie shot in after Stenson's attempt went wayward.

Patrick Reeds vs Rory McIlroy - A/S

Reeds trickles one towards the pin but it pulls just wide. Can McIlroy take advantage? Nope. His birdie shot stops just short and we remain all level.

On their second hole, McIlroy lands his second shot on the downslope, around 12 feet or so from the pin. Reed is perhaps double the distance away.

Stenson has a big task ahead having driven his tee shot well over the crowd and dropping it next to what look like a block of toilets for the crowd. "I knew it was a s*** shot," he quips, as he arrives on the scene to assess his options.

A superb par putt from Reed sparks enormous cheers from the home crowd with Reed eating it all up. When they finally quieten down, McIlroy taps home. All level after one hole here.

Jordan Spieth vs Henrik Stenson is underway but the Swede pulls his short horribly wide to the left, dropping it over the crowd. Spieth fares much better, showing no signs of that hand injury suffered yesterday.

After that poor second, McIlroy brilliantly dinks in from the bunker, trickling it to within a couple of feet of the hole. Reed has also found some range, but he's still some way short of the pin.

Reed's second shot from the rough catches the branches; it's another errant one from him that misses the fairway. After his his ideal start, McIlroy overcooks his second shot and drops it into the bunker.

Nick Howson at Hazeltine

Reed vs McIlroy is one of the sporting contests of the year, nevermind of this 41st Ryder Cup. The two best players from either side and how important could a douse of red of blue at the top of the leaderboard be for those players teeing off later? An amazing noise on the first tee, but it's a stage both players deserve.

And this final round is officially underway. McIlroy's drive down the fairway is near-perfect, but Reed pulls his slightly to the left, falling just short of the rough.

Patrick Reed, the pantomine villian at Gleneagles two years ago, is understandably a hero State-side. He's out on the green literally telling fans to raise the roof. We're almost ready here...

Nick Howson at Hazeltine

It is a sweltering morning at Hazeltine ahead of the start of the singles. The small section of European fans have just broken into a rendition of 'You'll never walk alone'. Whether it be a repeat of Istanbul or Medinah; there is little doubt Darren Clarke's men need a miracle today.

All times BST

It's not quite Medinah territory, but Europe need something special to deny USA their first Ryder Cup in eight years this evening. Darren Clarke's side should really be within two points of the opposition, but some errant putting from Lee Westwood means the task is a greater one than perhaps it should be today.

A score of 14 will see Europe retain the title, 14 ½ for USA will mean it stays State-side for another two years. For Davis Love III and his side, it is within their grasp. But does the ghost of what happened four years ago in Illinois still lurk?
