In the picturesque setting of Guidonia Montecelio, Italy, the final day of the Ryder Cup promises intense drama, regardless of the eventual winner.

Europe, holding a commanding 10.5-5.5 lead, is determined to avenge their painful 19-9 loss at Whistling Straits two years ago. Meanwhile, the U.S. is aiming to achieve a historic comeback from a five-point deficit, ending a 30-year winless drought on European soil.

The challenge is immense for the Americans, as the most points ever scored by a team in Sunday Singles is 8.5. Can they pull off the improbable? Singles, historically a strong format for the U.S., raises hopes, but the margin appears daunting.

Here are recaps of Sunday’s matches as they unfold:

Match 1: Viktor Hovland (Europe) def. Collin Morikawa (U.S.), 4 and 3 A decisive point for Europe as Hovland displayed a remarkable Singles performance. He took an early 3-up lead with four birdies on the front nine. Despite Morikawa’s attempts to cut into the lead, Hovland remained resolute, securing the critical point for Europe.

Hovland, whose game has matured significantly since his Ryder Cup debut, emerged as one of the top performers of the week.

Player records: Morikawa (1-3-0); Hovland (3-1-1)

Score: U.S. 5.5, Europe 11.5

Match 2: Scottie Scheffler (U.S.) ties Jon Rahm (Europe) A critical turning point on the 18th hole as Scheffler aimed for a win crucial to the U.S. comeback. However, a misjudged eagle chip by Scheffler and a close attempt by Rahm resulted in a halved match. This result halted potential American momentum and earned Europe an important half-point.

Rahm, with an impeccable record, contributed significantly to Europe’s success, while Scheffler remained without a win.

Player records: Scheffler (0-2-2); Rahm (2-0-2)

Score: U.S. 6, Europe 12

The day continues with matches 3 through 12, with both teams determined to leave their mark on this unforgettable Ryder Cup battle.
