U.S. Golfers Fight Back Tears After Choke

U.S. Golfers Fight Back Tears After Choke, No Ryder Cup team has ever self-destructed as spectacularly as the Americans did. U.S. coughs up Ryder Cup in biggest choke ever, It will go down as the biggest choke in Ryder Cup history, a collapse that even considering the pressure and tension and unpredictability of this remarkable event, was so unexpected as to defy belief.

The United States, utterly dominant on the first two days of competition in this Chicago suburb, failed to hold its nerve and self-destructed on a dramatic final afternoon to allow Europe to retain the trophy, 14.5 points to 13.5.

No home team had ever surrendered a lead of this magnitude, and the gap of four points heading into Sunday should have been enough to ensure a comfortable cruise for the Americans.
