2023 Ryder Cup Winner, Match Scores, Player Records

The 2023 Ryder Cup was the 44th time this biennial competition was played.

It was the first Ryder Cup played in Italy. Following Team Europe's victory, the all-time standings were 27 wins for Team USA, 15 for Team Europe, with two draws.

Final Score: Europe 16.5, United States 11.5

Dates Played: September 29-October 1, 2023

Golf Course: Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome, Italy

Team Captains: Zach Johnson for Team USA; Luke Donald for Team Europe

Team Rosters:

  • Team USA: Scottie Scheffler, Wyndham Clark, Brian Harman, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, Sam Burns
  • Team Europe: Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Tyrrell Hatton, Matt Fitzpatrick, Robert MacIntyre, Ludvig Aberg, Tommy Fleetwood, Nicolai Hojgaard, Shane Lowry, Justin Rose and Sepp Straka
Match Notes: Team Europe went 4-for-4 in the opening Day 1 foursomes session, the first time in Ryder Cup history the European side swept the competition's opening session. ... Team USA halved three matches and lost one in the Day 1 afternoon fourballs, making for the first full day in Ryder Cup history that the American side failed to win a match.

Team Europe began Day 2 winning three out of four morning foursomes to take a 7-point lead after three sessions. That tied the largest-ever lead after three sessions in any five-session, 28-point format Ryder Cup. ... One of those foursomes was a 9-and-7 win by Viktor Hovland/Ludvig Aberg over Scottie Scheffler/Brooks Koepka. That set an all-time Ryder Cup record for biggest win/worst defeat in any 18-hole match.

On the final day, Tyrrell Hatton's win over Brian Harman in the sixth singles match got Europe to 14 points, a half-point away from taking back the cup. That winning half-point came when Shane Lowry won the 17th hole of the 10th singles match go dormie against Jordan Spieth. ... Europe entered the final day with a 5-point lead, and that is how it ended — in a 5-point victory for Team Europe.
