23.01 - That's all, until Italy in 2023
Thanks for following the competition with us over the three days. Congratulations to the United States for this record winning margin.
23.00 - USA reach a record 19
Fleetwood hits water on the last and with Berger on the green the match is effectively over. With two putts to win the match he leaves his third shot with four feet. Fleetwood then misses a bogey putt and it is all over.
22.52 - Half agreed
Spieth and Fleetwood both left two foot putts for par and decided to call it a draw. This means America can only set a points record if Berger wins the last match.
22.40 - Westy steals a point
If this is to be Lee Westwood's last Ryder Cup match, this is a good way to end it as he battled back from behind to beat Harris English on the 18th, after the American hit water.
22.19 - Westy still fighting
Lee Westwood brings his game level with two holes remaining.
22.05 - Poulter keeps Singles record intact
It hasn't been a great week for the Postman but once more he delivered on a Sunday to keep his unbeaten record in Ryder Cup Singles.
22.02 - DJ gets seals 5/5
Both hit great seconds to the 18th, but neither could hole birdie putts meaning DJ becomes just the third player to win five points in a Ryder Cup.
22.03 - Thomas seals win
A chip to inches from the hole sees a levelling par conceded which gies him the game.
21.55 - How big will the margin be?
Koepka hit his tee shot inches from the hole on the 17th and with Wiesberger unable to hole for a birdie, another point goes onto the American total.
21.50 - The United States win the 2020 Ryder Cup
Morikawa misses his par putt so Hovland halves the match but that is enough to get the magic 14.5 figure.
21.47 - Postman to deliver
Poulter is surely going to win his match, he goes three up with three remaining.
21.31 - Morikawa guarantees win
A marvellous tee shot on the 17th, after Hovland on the edge of the green, leaves Morikawa within three feet. He will be one-up with one to play. Casey eagles the 16th to stop his opponent securing the winning half point.
21.25 - Johnson goes two-up on Casey.
He, Morikawa and Justin Thomas look to be competing to clinch the winning half point.
21.16 - Garcia downed
The Spanish players were the only ones who kept Europe even faintly alive in the first two days, but they did not have any miracles in their bag today. A horrible bunker lie meant Garcia didn't have a chance on the 16th and DeChambeau wins the point.
21.12 - Hovland level
The Norwegian has been superb today and just nailed a 15-footer to bring his game to all-square.
20.58 - Postman back in business
Like McIlroy he will be devastated by his form up until this point but he also has come to the party in the Singles. A 12 foot putt puts him 2-up.
20.50 - Another one bites the dust
Lowry's fourth is further away from the hole than Cantlay's third and he gives up the hole.
20.49 - The glut begins
Scheffler pars the 15th to beat Rahm.
20.40 - McIlroy tearful
Apologetic about feeling he has let his side down, McIlroy is in tears in his post-event interview.
20.38 - McIlroy wins
Both concede birdie putts and it is game over. The lead is reduced to five. It won't get any better than this so let's enjoy it. Casey also reduces Johnson's lead to one with a big putt.
20.33 - Fleetwood, Hovland reduce leads
A monster putt from Fleetwood reduces his lead to one and a superb tee shot has an easy putt for Hovland who has performed very well in his match.
20.24 - Thomas chips in, Johnson extends lead
Two more games definitely going America's way. 20 points is not out of the question....in fact it's the current projection.
20.20 - Cantlay extends, Garcia contracts
Lowry has batled and hit another great approach but Cantlay's was even better and the Irishman then missed his putt. DeChambeau missed the green and conceded Garcia's putt. Two the margin in both games.
20.07 - McIlroy restores three-point lead
A fine long putt from McIlroy then sees his opponent miss an easier one and this point is all but in the bag. Rahm back to three down too, but Morikawa two ahead again.
19.59 - Scheffler four up
Even Rahm seems incapable of saving this match.
19.53 - Lowry, Hovland just one down
Cantlay overshot the green and twice traversed it with his next to shots to bring Lowry back within one. Morikawa finally missed a putt from inside 20 feet.
19.48 - Koepka goes ahead
A 12-footer sees him take the lead over Wiesberger. The record of 19 points seems within reach.
19.38 - Casey back level
Awkward chip from the edge of the green for Johnson and he misses the green on the other side.
19.33 - McIlroy three ahead
Can we call the first one? This was one call Padraig got right. Schauffele was bunkered meaning a parr was good enough. Lowry has pulled back to two down and Berger is all-square in the final match.
19.28 - DJ up
Dustin Johnson, the US veteran, putts in from the fringe and has the lead over fellow oldie Casey. A poor putt from Fleetwood sees him one down on Spieth too. Westwood is one up, but US have the lead in seven and Europe five.
19.15 - Rory two up
While much else is falling down, McIlory is doing his part, a fine approach enables him to putt in from five feet. Fitzpatrick also sinks a 15 footer to go ahead on the first.
19.13 - Bryson back two up, Morikawa has lead
A birdie putt extends DeCambeau's lead and a missed putt from Hovland has him one down with Morikawa.
19.11 - English pulls level
Westy couldn't make a long birdie putt and with English's approach close it means the match pulls level.
19.01 - Thomas goes back-to-back
Two straight birdies get JT what already looks a big lead over Hatton.
18.54 - Westy up early
A fine approach, the sort we have seen for years and years at the Ryder Cup from Lee, has him one up.
18.48 - Thomas goes one up
JT wins the opening hole against Hatton. Tyrell really can't let this match get away from him.
18.43 - Morikawa pulls one back
It's been coming, a superb putt from the fringe on the last hole was equalled by a fine Hovland putt but the European could not match him on the fourth.
18.35 - Cantlay three up
After awful approaches to the first tow holes, Cantlay has been on fire since and is now three up on Big Shane who seems unlikely to repeat yesterday's heroics. Rory is down to one ahead too.
18.33 - Postman delivering
Poulter birdies the first with a long putt to set the tone for his round.
18.31 - Rahm dragging it back
After a poor tee shot, Rahm produced a magnificent second putting pressure on Scheffler to sink his putt and it just rimmed out.
18.25 - Brooks one down
Koepka's errant tee shot had him behind the eight ball and Wiesberger takes the opening hole with a par.
18.21 - Cantlay extends lead
Lowry put his second in the water but then played a great recovery shot but with Cantlay playing his third to a few inches it was to no avail.
18.14 - Garcia pulls one back
A long putt from right to left is judged to perfection. Hovland has also gone two up over Morikawa. Didn't see that coming.
18.13 - Rahm four down
He needed to hole a monster for the half and just missed doing so.
18.10 - McIlroy holes a monster to half hole
A great recovery after hitting water with his second shot.
18.05 - Garcia two down too
After a tough approach he has a chance to tie the third but misses a putt of just over six foot. Rory has hit water as well...
18.04 - Things not going well...
Cantlay, after being one down, is now one up over Lowery.
18.01 - Let's hope history repeats...
Rahm is three down after three, Scheffler in ridiculous form out the gate.
17.59 - Hovland one up
Morikawa with a rare duffed shot with his second, eventually saw him with a tough putt to save par and he just misses.
17.54 - Rory two up
The former World number one is doing his part. A missed par putt from Schauffele sees the Ulsterman go two ahead.
17.52 - Scheffler two up
Rahm and Garcia were three down after three yesterday morning and they might have the same predicament in their singles. Scheffler with another birdie extends his lead.
17.49 - Cantlay back level
Lowry misses the green on the par three third and Cantlay's tee shot is perfect, setting up a birdie.
17.46 - Eagle at the first!
DeChambeau drove the green and then sunk a putt of over 25 feet to take an early lead.
17.42 - Cantlay looks shaky
A poor putt gives Lowry a chance to win the second with a birdie and he does just that.
17.36 - Scheffler goes in front
Europe's hero Rahm is one down after the first hole after a superb second shot from Scheffler had him three feet away for a birdie putt - and he made no mistake.
17.24 - First hole halved
Cantley played a terrible second into the greenside bunker but a wonderful recovery for a gimme putt.
17.13 - What a start...
McIlroy putts home from eight feet for a birdie and then Schauffele misses from less than half that. Early lead in the Singles!
17.05 - That's a start...
McIlroy produces a booming drive to the edge of the green....the only problem is Schauffele does exactly the same.
17:00 - USA 11-5 Europe - McIlroy set to take to the tee
