We have to go back to the infamous Ryder Cup at Brookline in 1999 for the US's last win in the biennial competition.
Controversy raged from the start within the European camp when captain Mark James threw Nick Faldo's "good luck " note to the team in the bin.
James also incurred some wrath by keeping Jean Van de Velde, Jarmo Sandelin and Andrew Coltart out of action until the final day singles.
But the event, in European eyes, will be remembered for the controversial US invasion of the 17th green after Justin Leonard holed a monster putt to all but secure victory.
