1991 Kiawah Island

US 14.5 - Europe 13.5

Langer missed a six-foot par putt in the final singles, a putt that would have won his match and clinched a tie and retained the Ryder Cup for Europe.

It was the first win for the United States since 1983 following consecutive losses to Europe in 1985 and 1987 and a tie in 1989.

Due the fierce competition, gamesmanship and general over exuberance of the US team and its fans, the 29th Ryder Cup match quickly became known as the War on the Shore.
