The European Ryder Cup team have been named Team of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards in Birmingham.
Europe were recognised for their achievement in regaining the trophy from the USA in October in such thrilling fashion at Celtic Manor.
Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie said: “It’s an honour for me to pick this up for 12 great, great men of golf.
“We were very fortunate and we had unsung heroes in our caddies and we want to thank every spectator who turned out in support of the European team in Wales.”
Montgomerie was also named Coach of the Year for his Ryder Cup success, beating Blackpool manager Ian Holloway and England cricket coach Andy Flower to the award.
“It has been a fantastic year to European golf and I’m privileged to receive this award on behalf of the European Tour,” said Montgomerie.
