Ian Poulter on Twitter: "As a parent, these moments we get to spend with one another sometimes are few and far between, Luke, but when moments like this come around, I was not letting you down today".
'I just tried to do things well and be professional and I had an wonderful partner in Tommy alongside me. "The last month has been a struggle".
Molinari and Fleetwood were looking to become the first European pairing to win their first four matches together and stormed into a 3-up lead after just six holes against Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau.
"It was a good battle", McIlroy said to his dad, Gerry, as they made their way off the course.
"I've been part of another two winning teams where I didn't bring full points, and I'm glad after I've been carried on the shoulders by some of these guys to give something back", Molinari said.
But this was more about the Europeans as a team, and they were tougher than ever on a course they know well.
Molinari wasn't the only history-maker.
Sergio Garcia's singles victory over Rickie Fowler saw him become the all-time points scorer in Ryder Cup history, moving half a point clear of Nick Faldo, with 25.5 career points.
Only Americans Larry Nelson in 1979 and Arnold Palmer and Gardner Dickinson in 1967 had gone 5-for-5 in 41 prior Ryder Cups.
Tanigawa finished at 10-under 205, also making a long eagle putt on his final hole Saturday at Poppy Hills to take a two-stroke lead into the final round.
Payback belongs to Europe, and so does the Ryder Cup.
"We'll regroup and I'll definitely kind of go through some things in my head and we'll move forward".
The Europeans lost five of the first eight holes and wound up getting beaten 3 and 2 by Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson, but Garcia's passion stayed to the end.
US captain Jim Furyk came over with some words of consolation. "The worst decision I made all week".
Saturday's rally was "almost a similar thing", Finau said.
But ever since, Europe mercilessly battered its opponents - opponents who were pre-tournament favourites before a ball had even been struck. I know I had the game to do it.
Bjorn was on the hotseat some after the selection of Garcia, who had not been in very good form this season. He missed the cut in all four majors this year. But once Bjorn called him, he worked hard to be ready.
Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson, Ian Poulter and Paul Casey earned 9.5 points.
"It feels great but it's not about me", he said.
"We've got to take all that in and you look at Brookline, Medinah, plenty of examples of these scorelines not meaning a lot until you get to singles", Bjorn said.
"How do you sum that up?", European captain Thomas Bjorn said.
Two up with three to play, Rahm handed Woods a lifeline by three-putting the 16th, but then smashed a wonderful 356-yard drive down the 17th and hit his approach to three feet to set up a winning birdie. You bet it did. "It was about time to have them but it's about the group not the individual". "Thomas was a better captain and their team outplayed us". He was the lone player from his team in the field. Woods and Mickelson are 1-7 in Ryder Cups where they both play.
I thought this year would be different because they were surrounded by 10 of the best golfers alive, future hall of famers who will have plaques next to theirs in 10 or 20 years. For me it was an easy job to guide them in that direction.
