Ryder Cup LIVE: Day Three updates and tee times as Europe attempt miracle comeback

Team USA have clinched the 43rd Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits and are on track to storm to a record victory. 

A half point from Collin Morikawa against Viktor Hovland was enough to tip the US to the coveted 14 1/2 points needed to snatch the trophy back from Europe. 

Europe battled early on to rally back with a commanding lead out from Rory McIlroy but never managed the feat of turning the tide as the board flooded with red.

With three matches left out on the course, it is down to Lee Westwood, Tommy Fleetwood and Matt Fitzpatrick to prevent the US romping to a record winning margin. 

The record Ryder Cup victory in the European era is 18½–9½. The US achieved that in 1981 at Walton Heath and Europe have done it twice, in consecutive wins at Oakland Hills in 2004 and the K Club in Ireland in 2006.

With 17 1/2 points currently on the board, Steve Stricker’s men have the chance to smash that record.

Europe required another miracle to retain the Ryder Cup with the United States taking a commanding lead into the final day singles at Whistling Straits.

The USA dominated on day two and lead 11-5, meaning they required just 3.5 of the 12 available points on Sunday to clinch the trophy.
