Keegan Bradley 4/10

Played 3 Won 1 Halved 0 Lost 2

Partner for Mickelson and after an opening-day win and then defeat was stood down on the Saturday. Lost decisive match to Donaldson 4&3

Rickie Fowler 5/10

Played 5 Won 0 Halved 3 Lost 2

Second Ryder Cup and yet to win a game. Opened up with three half points but another one who lost his mojo in the Saturday foursomes and his much anticipated singles with McIlroy turned into a procession for the world No1

Jim Furyk 4/10

Played 4 Won 1 Halved 0 Lost 3

Now lost more Ryder Cup matches than any American, though always offered a challenge and took García down the 18th in the singles

Zach Johnson 4/10

Played 3 Won 0 Halved 1 Lost 2

Not at his best with Mahan and Kuchar in foursomes, though a brave birdie putt at the 18th salvaged a half against Dubuisson

Matt Kuchar 5/10

Played 4 Won 1 Halved 0 Lost 3

Victim of his own versatility and played with three different partners in the four-man events but finally came good in the singles

Hunter Mahan 5/10

Played 4 Won 1 Halved 1 Lost 2

Won Saturday fourballs with Jim Furyk and led for most of the day in the singles before bogey at the last meant he halved match with Rose

Phil Mickelson 6/10

Played 3 Won 2 Halved 0 Lost 1

Played fourballs and foursomes on Friday and sat out the next day for the first time in 10 Ryder Cups. Got the job done in the singles

Patrick Reed 7/10

Played 4 Won 3 Halved 1 Lost 0

Riled some of the crowd with his OTT celebrations but finished with the most points by a USA rookie in this format of the Ryder Cup

Webb Simpson 4/10

Played 2 Won 0 Halved 1 Lost 1

Wildcard selection ostensibly to partner Watson but dropped after opening defeat, though had good tussle with Poulter in the singles

Jordan Spieth 7/10

Played 4 Won 2 Halved 1 Lost 1

Did as much as could be expected of a rookie, so much so that he was sent out as lead-off man in the singles but ran out of steam after leading McDowell by three at the turn

Jimmy Walker 7/10

Played 5 Won 1 Halved 3 Lost 1

Stablemate and partner for Fowler in the four-man games, produced his best stuff in the singles to see off Lee Westwood. Stand-out USA player

Bubba Watson 3/10

Played 3 Won 0 Halved 0 Lost 3

US Masters champion missed a birdie putt at the 1st on day one and never recovered. Failed to take one of his matches to the 17th

Europe ratings

Thomas Bjorn 4/10

Played 3 Won 0 Halved 1 Lost 2

Things started so well for the Dane on day one but his form quickly spiralled from there. Only won half a point in a disappointing performance

Jamie Donaldson 8/10

Played 4 Won 3 Halved 0 Lost 1

Hit the winning shot which will forever symbolise this European success. Three points on the board and some crucial victories for the Welshman

Victor Dubuisson 8/10

Played 3 Won 2 Halved 1 Lost 0

There was an element of the unknown surrounding the Frenchman but he produced some wonderful golf. Unbeaten and it could have been a perfect record

Stephen Gallacher 3/10

Played 2 Won 0 Halved 0 Lost 2

Difficult not to feel sorry for the local boy, whose struggles on the opening day were out of character and surely due to the pressure

Sergio García 7/10

Played 4 Won 2 Halved 1 Lost 1

Did not quite click alongside McIlroy on opening morning but recovered well. Wonderful shot to save half in the Friday foursomes and a singles win

Martin Kaymer 6/10

Played 4 Won 1 Halved 2 Lost 1

Emphatic victory over Watson on final day but was convincingly beaten alongside Bjorn by Reed and Spieth in the Saturday fourballs

Graeme McDowell 9/10

Played 3 Won 3 Halved 0 Lost 0

The only European with a perfect record. McDowell was masterful alongside Dubuisson and turned around a significant deficit in the singles

Rory McIlroy 8/10

Played 5 Won 2 Halved 2 Lost 1

Emphatic victory over Fowler to set the tone for Europe's Sunday. One defeat but on the whole an impressive weekend for the world No1

Ian Poulter 5/10

Played 3 Won 0 Halved 2 Lost 1

Not his usual enigmatic self but did produce some magic at a crucial time alongside McIlroy in the Saturday fourballs to secure a half

Justin Rose 9/10

Played 5 Won 3 Halved 2 Lost 0

Europe's best player of the Ryder Cup. Some of Rose's golf was simply sublime and he proved to be this year's talisman for the home side

Henrik Stenson 8/10

Played 4 Won 3 Halved 0 Lost 1

Was in fine form alongside Rose and the pair formed a formidable partnership. Lost at the death to Reed in the singles though

Lee Westwood 6/10

Played 4 Won 2 Halved 0 Lost 2

Effective with Donaldson in the foursomes although lost to Walker in the singles, albeit when the cup had already been retained.
