Team Europe held on Sunday in singles, beating Team U.S 16½-11½. to win the Ryder Cup at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club outside Rome. Europe hasn't lost on its home soil since 1993.

Tommy Fleetwood's birdie on No. 16 ensured Europe of at least a half point in his match, guaranteeing it enough to win.

Here are some of the top moments from the three days of the Ryder Cup:

Considering the largest final-day deficit overcome to win the Ryder Cup is four points, the Americans will have their work cut out for them entering Sunday. But that hasn't dimmed Sam Burns' competitive spirit.
