The European Ryder Cup team had a week to remember and it was anchored by some of their top players’ best-ever performances.

World No. 2 Rory McIlroy went 4-1-0, the best mark the 34-year-old has ever had in his seven Ryder Cup appearances.

McIlroy’s stellar record wasn’t the only strong performance for the victors, as four other players won at least three points in the 16.5-11.5 win. Only one golfer did the same for the U.S. team.

Records for all 24 2023 Ryder Cup players

Rory McIlroy (EUR): 4 points, 4-1-0

The leader of the European team had a little bit of everything this week. Big wins playing with Fleetwood and Fitzpatrick and a Sunday gut punch by handling Sam Burns with ease. Patrick Cantlay’s birdie putt Saturday night — plus whatever happened afterward — was the only blemish on what was McIlroy’s best-ever Ryder Cup performance.

Tyrrell Hatton (EUR): 3.5 points, 3-0-1

Hatton quietly had Europe’s most efficient week, going undefeated in four matches, including birding 16 Friday evening to help deny Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth a full point.

Max Homa (USA): 3.5 points, 3-1-1

The lone bright spot for the Americans was Homa, who moved to 7-1-1 in his career in Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup matches and was the only American to play all five matches. His clutch up and down on 18 against Fitzpatrick in singles kept the Americans alive for nearly another hour.

Viktor Hovland (EUR): 3.5 points, 3-1-1

Hovland was perhaps the hottest player in the field after winning the FedEx Cup in August and he played like it. He and Ludvig Aberg’s 9-and-7 thumping of Scottie Scheffler and Brooks Koepka Saturday morning nearly demoralized the Americans.

Tommy Fleetwood (EUR): 3 points, 3-1-0

Fleetwood clinched the winning point for the Europeans by defeating Rickie Fowler in singles. That came after two foursomes victories with McIlroy.

Jon Rahm (EUR): 3 points, 2-0-2

The Masters champion picked up two foursomes wins with Hatton, but it was perhaps his two half points, both coming against World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, that may have proved the biggest.

Robert MacIntyre (EUR): 2.5 points, 2-0-1

The rookie from Scotland ends his first Ryder Cup undefeated after taking down U.S. Open champion Wyndham Clark in singles.

Patrick Cantlay (USA): 2 points, 2-2-0

Cantlay became the rallying point for the U.S. after reports of him being a divider in the locker room circled Saturday. He birdied his final three holes Saturday to steal a point from McIlroy and Fitzpatrick and then took down Justin Rose Sunday.

Ludvig Aberg (EUR): 2 points, 2-2-0

The rookie had an impressive debut, winning two fourball matches with Hovland, including a record 9-and-7 rout of Brooks Koepka and Scottie Scheffler Saturday morning.

Brian Harman (USA): 2 points, 2-2-0

Harman got two big wins and found a solid partnership with Homa, but he couldn’t keep the momentum in singles, falling to Hatton.

Wyndham Clark (USA): 1.5 points, 1-1-1

When the pressure was highest, Clark did not rise to the occasion. Twice he had chances to secure full points after perfect drives in the 18th fairway, only to blow his approach way right. He was bailed out by Cantlay Saturday evening.

Shane Lowry (EUR): 1.5 points, 1-1-1

Lowry battled to a tie with Jordan Spieth Sunday after falling 3 down early and got an early win Friday morning to help kickstart the European victory.

Brooks Koepka (USA): 1.5 points, 1-1-1

Koepka didn’t look like his normal steady self but handled the upstart rookie Ludvig Aberg in singles to keep the U.S. alive.

Justin Rose (EUR): 1.5 points, 1-1-1

Rose was better than his record would indicate, running into an inspired Cantlay Sunday after helping to turn the momentum Friday afternoon with back-to-back birdies to tie his match.

Justin Thomas (USA): 1.5 points, 1-2-1

After being a controversial captain’s pick, Thomas didn’t get his only point until a nearly meaningless singles match with Straka.

Sam Burns (USA): 1 point, 1-2-0

Burns and Collin Morikawa combined to give Viktor Hovland his only loss of the week in fourballs and he hung with McIlroy as long as he could Sunday.

Matt Fitzpatrick (EUR): 1 point, 1-2-0

Fitzpatrick was red-hot Friday afternoon in fourballs with McIlroy to finally earn his first Ryder Cup point. He also fought Max Homa till the end in singles.

Sepp Straka (EUR): 1 point, 1-2-0

In his first Ryder Cup, Straka got a win in that dominant opening session with Lowry and had a chance to earn the clinching point if he could have flipped his singles match with Thomas on the final hole.

Collin Morikawa (USA): 1 point, 1-3-0

Aside from pairing with Burns in Saturday afternoon fourballs for a win, Morikawa was disappointing and held by a balky putter.

Xander Schauffele (USA): 1 point, 1-3-0

Schauffele was winless until taking down Højgaard in Sunday singles in what was a shocking performance for the player who won three points at Whistling Straits.

Scottie Scheffler (USA): 1 point, 0-2-2

Scheffler’s two most significant matches were brutal ties at the hand of Rahm. His loss on the 18th hole Sunday in singles all but assured a European victory. Being a part of that 9-and-7 rout Saturday morning is not what you want out of your World No. 1 star.

Jordan Spieth (USA): 1 point, 0-2-2

Spieth was statistically the U.S.’s worst player off the tee and left partner Justin Thomas to fend for himself several times in both his fourball matches.

Nicolai Højgaard (EUR): 0.5 points, 0-2-1

Højgaard earned one half-point in his Ryder Cup debut, helping Rahm grind out a half-point against Koepka and Scheffler Friday afternoon with six birdies.

Rickie Fowler (USA): 0 points, 0-2-0

In one of the biggest surprises of the entire Ryder Cup, Rickie Fowler played in just two matches, the fewest of any player, and failed to record a point.
