"Historically Europe probably have been stronger in the foursomes and America have always been stronger in the fourballs," European Captain Darren Clarke said.
"And that was completely turned on its head. The guys were disappointed with the way they played this morning, the way they performed. But they showed tremendous bravery and heart and desire to go out and play the way they've done this afternoon. As a captain I'm certainly proud of them."
