2012 Medinah

Europe 14.5 - US 13.5

The greatest comeback in sporting history. Period.

Reeved up by the bulging eyeballs of Ian Poulter during Saturday's afternoon fourballs following a slow start to the week, Europe pulled to within four points at 10-6 heading into the final-day singles.

With Seve looking on from above, Europe achieved one of the greatest comebacks in Ryder Cup history by winning eight and tying one of the 12 singles.

Martin Kaymer clinched the crucial point when rolling home a five-foot putt on the 18th to defeat Steve Stricker, before Francesco Molinari halved the final match with Tiger Woods to ensure an outright win for Europe.

What's your favourite Ryder Cup match and why? Who do you think has the upper hand heading into the 40th Ryder Cup match at Gleneagles later this month?
