Europe beat America to win golf's Ryder Cup in Wales

Europe Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie holds the Ryder Cup after Europe beat America to keep hold of the trophy

Europe triumphed over America in a nail-biting finish to golf's biggest competition - the Ryder Cup.

It came down to the last two holes of Graeme MacDowell's match at Celtic Manor in Newport, Wales, but the Northern Irish golfer held his nerve.

His match win helped Europe beat the USA by one vital point, and get their hands back on the trophy.

It's the first time the competition has run over four days. The extra day was needed because of the bad weather.
