PARKER, Colo. - Even with six rookies on her team, captain Liselotte Neumann told the Europeans this was their time to make history in the Solheim Cup.
All she wanted was for them to prove they could win in America.
They gave her so much more.
Caroline Hedwall became the first player in Solheim Cup history to win five matches, and the final point was for more than the 24-year-old Swede. She stuck her approach on the 435-yard 18th hole into 4 feet for a birdie that gave her a 1-up win over Michelle Wie and assured Europe of keeping the cup.
"I'm still shaking," Hedwall said. "It's just amazing."
Moments later, Catriona Matthew holed a 5-foot par putt to halve her match and give Europe the outright win on the seventh try in America.
Europe set a record the biggest blowout since this competition began in 1990 - 18-10.
And the Europeans did it with six rookies on their team, who combined to go 12-5-2.
Catriona Matthew, at 43 the oldest player on the team, rallied to halve her match against Gerina Piller that gave Europe 14 1/2 points and an outright win in America.
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Patrick Reed won the Wyndham Championship for his first PGA Tour title, beating Jordan Spieth with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.
Reed recovered from a drive on the par-4 10th that nearly went out of bounds and placed his second shot 7 feet from the pin. Spieth reached the green in two strokes but his 10-foot birdie putt trickled less than an inch wide of the cup. Reed then sank his birdie putt to end it.
ENDICOTT, N.Y. - Bart Bryant won the Dick's Sporting Goods Open to becoming the Champions Tour's 1,000th tournament winner.
Bryant shot a tournament record-tying 10-under 62 in the second round and completed his first victory on the 50-and-over tour with 72. He finished at 16-under 200 to beat Russ Cochran and Corey Pavin by one shot.
BROOKLINE, Mass. - Matt Fitzpatrick has won the U.S. Amateur, beating Oliver Goss 4 and 3 in the 36-hole final to become the first English champion of the tournament since 1911.
Fitzpatrick won when Goss missed a par putt on No. 15 at The Country Club. The event came on the 100th anniversary of local caddie Francis Ouimet's U.S. Open victory over British pros Harry Vardon and Ted Ray.
