So now that the tumult and the shouting is starting to die down, who is to be praised and who to be blamed for the US triumph and the European defeat at the 37th Ryder Cup on Sunday?
Was it Paul Azinger, the US skipper, and European captain Nick Faldo who were the hero and the villain of the piece in this exciting Valhalla show in Kentucky.
