Resounding US Ryder Cup win could be start of something big

After America's youngest Ryder Cup team handed Europe its biggest beating ever, they're more than a little cocky, too. Heading into the final-day singles, the U.S. players threatened to run up the score - something the Europeans did more than once while taking seven of the previous nine cup matches - and man, did they ever deliver. Collin Morikawa, at 24 the youngest player on the team and already a two-time major champion, came up with the clinching blow.

The odds of Steve Stricker not having tears running down his face after leading the U.S. to a dominating Ryder Cup win were about as long as the chances of Europe roaring back on Sunday to beat the Americans. The Ryder Cup was safely back in American hands and the way this U.S. team performed, it looks like it may stay for a long time. It may not have happened if not for a hometown captain who showed a supremely talented group of players how to win the way the Europeans always won - as a team.

All European captain Padraig Harrington can do at this point is post the lineup card, recite a few lines from Winston Churchill's "We Shall Fight on the Beaches" speech, wave his guys on their way Sunday morning and then pray. Harrington knocked that first task off his to-do list late Saturday, predictably front-loading his lineup in a desperate bid to gain momentum and then somehow sustain it through the dozen singles matches. The Europeans trail captain Steve Stricker's young and hungry U.S. squad 11-5, and no team has ever come back from a deficit of more than four points.

Pairing two swashbuckling Spaniards will be recalled as perhaps the one coherent decision of Padraig Harrington's Ryder Cup captaincy. For Europe, the dynamic between Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia has provided a rare but precious connection to the feats of Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal, still the most decorated partnership in this event's history. "The Spanish Armada," the pair are being called, a nod to their exalted forebears. Usually, one might expect an armada to be composed of more
