October 5th 2010, Wales – The European golf team, notably comprising four Audemars Piguet ambassadors – Lee Westwood, Rory Mcllroy, Graeme McDowell and Miguel Ángel Jiménez – has won the 2010 Ryder Cup, thereby bringing back to Europe the prestigious trophy it lost on the other side of the Atlantic two years ago. Europe beat the American team by 14.5 points to 13.5.
After Friday’s torrential rains and the poor Sunday morning conditions on the Celtic Manor course, the Ryder Cup organisers had to postpone the singles matches to Monday.
Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell scored 2.5 points each, and Rory Mcllroy and Miguel Ángel Jiménez 2 points apiece. It was during the third session on Sunday that Team Europe gained the edge it was able to maintain right through to the final victory, by scoring 5.5 out of the maximum possible 6 points.
