MEDINAH, Ill. -- A glance at Sunday's final day of the Ryder Cup:

Clincher: Martin Kaymer of Germany sunk a 6-footer for the 14th point that Europe needed to retain the cup after winning in Wales in 2010.
Key statistic: Of the six matches that reached the 18th hole, Europe won 4½ points.
Quoteworthy: "I'm sure there's a lot of great plans in sporting events that sound real good the night before." -- U.S. captain Davis Love III.
