After the defeat at Gleneagles in 2014, it was time for a change among the Americans. A task force was implemented, the awarding of wild cards was reorganised and team spirit was worked on. This all bore fruit. Team USA got off to a dream start and refused to surrender the lead, headed by an unleashed Patrick Reed. All 12 players were convincing and played their part in the resounding success, which makes the next Ryder Cup in Paris in two years, at which BMW will be the Official Partner, even more exciting now: Will Europe return to winning ways on home turf? Or will the USA be able to keep riding on the wave of success with the "new" team spirit of Hazeltine?
