Europe retain Ryder Cup in Medinah

Europe retain Ryder Cup in Medinah

Thousands of spectators have watched Europe complete a sensational comeback to retain the Ryder Cup at the Medinah Country Club, Chicago.

Europe were 10-6 down going into the final day, but battled back to take the prize 14½-13½.

The event provided a boost to the tourism industry in America, with thousands of fans travelling from around the world.

It comes at a time when America is trying to reassert its position in the global tourism market place, with the new Brand USA marketing body launched by the Obama administration.

The body got a new chief executive earlier this week, with Christopher Thompson taking over from interim chief Caroline Beteta.

Scotland will be looking for a similar boost when the 2014 Ryder Cup comes to Gleneagles Hotel in Perth & Kinross, Scotland.
