Tell us your favourite moment from the Ryder Cup 2012 for the chance to win a copy

It was arguably the greatest comeback in the history of sport. The most remarkable Ryder Cup of all time. A win that inspired a continent.

Jose Maria Olazabal’s heroes, motivated by the spirit of their talisman, Seve Ballesteros, overcame one of the strongest American teams in recent memory, a raucous Chicago gallery, and a four point deficit going into the final day’s singles matches.

Well, you all know what happened. But now you can relive it in full High Definition glory. On this two-disc collection, not only is there all the action from the three remarkable days, but European skipper Olazabal takes us on his own personal journey of the week dubbed the Miracle at Medinah.

From the calm as he watched his team arrive in Chicago to the emotional climax of ‘the putt he couldn’t watch’, in this programme we get the unique chance to see the highs and the lows of the 2012 Ryder Cup through the eyes of El Capitan.

But that’s not all. There is also a Road to Medinah film, including both the European and US teams’ road to Medinah, interviews with both captains and leading players, recent history of the biennial slobberknocker, an insight into what makes a great Ryder Cup venue, plus insightful stories from key people who make a Ryder Cup happen.

Miracle at Medinah: The 2012 Ryder Cup Diary & Official Film is published by LaceDVD and is available now priced £12.95. Click here to watch the 60-second trailer.

Sunday singles, Justin Rose, birdie on 17 to pull Mickelson back to level and then go on to win the match. The total confidence on his face after it went in not to mention "the walk" to the hole was priceless.

Following on from Justin Rose's birdie on the 17th on Sunday - which came after Mickelsen's chip burned the edge, it was Mickelsen's little thumb up/clap to Justin Rose as he left the green for me. I've always had half an opinion that Mickelsen's fan-friendly nature was slightly fake, but I thought that was unbelievably classy - in the heat of the battle, etc.

Nicolas Colsaerts single handedly defeating Woods and Stricker in his debut fourball. I think he shot an approximate 62, and he was holing everything. A Colsaerts in full flow is a thing of beauty, as the virtually spectating Westwood would surely appreciate.

Ian Poulter snarling and fist pumping when a putt dropped in. Sod the British stiff upper lip. He showed the Yanks how much he cared.

Furyks dejected face when he lost on the final day ,it was a face that said it all for the americans as it was just a look of pure shock horror and realisation that they were going to lose ,and the european juggernaut was simply steamrollering them.

Phil mickleson acknowledging Justin Rose chip in on 17, that showed the true spirit of the Ryder cup right there, one player appreciating the skill of an opponent even under the fiercest of competitions, lovely to see, a lot of sports could learn from that moment.

Two no hopers in the final singles on Sunday coming down the stretch.
No chance. lambs to the slaughter!!

For me it was when Paul Lawrie chipped in against Brandt Snedeker. Fist pumping.....that's why they call him chippy went the commentator

If you have a best memory, you've already seen it. So dash out a copy to a poor pleb who hasn't - me

Well we needed a quick start on the final day and Donald,Poulter, Mcilroy, Rose and Lawrie certainly gave us one, winning the first 5 matches. But Rose's chip in on 17 and Lefty's acknowledgement of the shot is my lasting memory, a proper sportsman.

I wason holiday in Portugal at the time, and wasn't worried about not being able to watch it as I knew there was an "English" bar with Sky. First evening there we walked over for a drink and sat down right in front of this massive TV. Marvellous I thought.  Eventually a surly woman came over and sort of hovered about. We we didn't know if she was waiting on or about to bum  a fag or summat. Turned out she was the owner!!!!!! What a miserable moo she was! We had one drink and cleared off never to return. I missed the flamin' lot !!! Can i have one please?

Nic Colsaerts playing in his first ever match against Tiger Woods, shooting 10 under with his own ball while partner Westwood (who couldn't make a putt) laughing in disbelief.

Best performance by a rookie - ever.

For me it's the guy from the crowd shouting.  'Go Tiger your our 13th man'.  In actual play terms Furyk celebrating making the putt on 16 and missing.

Posted: 22/11/2012 at 11:30

Phil Mickleson's acknowledgement of Justin Rose's putt on the 17th was pure class in such dramatic times but I also really liked Tiger Woods conceding the match to Francesco Molinari on the final green. It really shows the true spirit of the game.

When the camera went to Paul Lawrie as he had just sealed his signles win over Brandt Snedecker - bottom lip quivering all he could splutter out was "it's Kleenex time"........just showed what it really means

Martin Kaymer sinking that crucial putt !

Justin rose interview after beating Michelson and his comment

"I now know what It feels like to be Ian Poulter"

Some Americans have more regrets than others, and boy does ESPN journo Gene Wojciechowski have a huge pile after his massive foot in mouth moment that was discovered with glee on the Sunday night. He had served the last rights on Europe the day before in his article "Ryder Cup all but locked up for U.S." where he suggested the only way the US would not win was if amongst others Keegan Bradley was abducted and Amy Mickleson turned out in the singles.

So my favorite moment was the cruel, needless but very entertaining verbal 'putting the boot in' that followed. It's not big, it's not clever but totally deserved! And very satisfying.
