Back on home soil, the Americans claimed a fifth straight win with ease, proving the British were as far away as ever from getting their first win in the States.
Sam Snead's team dominated the opening foursomes and carved out a 3-1 lead on the first day.
Only Arthur Lees managed to disrupt the American victory procession, with a win not only in the foursomes, but in the singles as well.
With the likes of Snead, Ben Hogan, Jimmy Demaret and Lloyd Mangrum on their team, the US were always likely to dominate, and so they did. Over the two days only two of the 12 matches reached the 18th hole.
Jack Burke Jnr made his mark by joining more illustrious team-mates like Snead and Hogan in winning two points for the Americans, while Demaret produced some magical bunker play to defeat veteran Dai Rees. The Brits could not wait to get home.
