The 2001 match was postponed following the disastrous events of 11 September with the same teams coming together 12 months later.
New European captain Sam Torrance and US counterpart Curtis Strange presided over an event which focused on a renewed spirit of friendship and fair play.
Europe featured the out-of-form Lee Westwood, the European number one in 2000, but he rose to the occasion, winning his first three matches with Sergio Garcia to give his side a foothold.
The two teams went into the singles locked at 8-8 to set up a tense final day.
