GAEL FORCE WIN The winds of change were howling over the 17th hole at Medinah Country Club late on Sunday afternoon when Rory McIlroy took a bow in front of the gallery. Moments earlier, McIlroy had gained Europe's second point of the day with his defeat of Keegan Bradley. It was just the beginning of a final-day rout that saw the Euros come from four down to defeat the U.S. 14½--13½ and retain the Cup (page 56).
