    Ryder Cup Scores Into the New Millenium

    For many years in Ryder Cup history, Team USA dominated. But heading into the 21st Century, Team Europe began flipping that script.

    2016: USA 17, Europe 11
    2014: Europe 16.5, USA 11.5
    2012: Europe 14.5, USA 13.5
    2010: Europe 14.5, U.S. 13.5
    2008: U.S. 16.5, Europe 11.5
    2006: Europe 18.5, U.S. 9.5
    2004: Europe 18.5, U.S. 9.5
    2002: Europe 15.5, U.S. 12.5

    Team Europe Begins Evening the Score (1979-99)

    In 1979, Team Europe debuted in the Ryder Cup. Just two cups later, the tournament suddenly had a much more competetive and intense feel to it. The period of American domination was well-over.

    1999: U.S. 14.5, Europe 13.5
    1997: Europe 14.5, U.S. 13.5
    1995: Europe 14.5, U.S. 13.5
    1993: U.S. 15, Europe 13
    1991: U.S. 14.5, Europe 13.5
    1989: Europe 14, U.S. 14 (Europe retains the cup)
    1987: Europe 15, U.S. 13
    1985: Europe 16.5, U.S. 11.5
    1983: U.S. 14.5, Europe 13.5
    1981: U.S. 18.5, Europe 9.5
    1979: U.S. 17, Europe 11

    USA Dominates Pre-Team Europe Era

    From 1947 (the first post-war tournament) through 1977 (the last tournament with Team GB&I), there were 16 Ryder Cups played. Team USA won 14 of those. There was one tie. It was near total Team USA domination, but when you see the team rosters in many of these years you'll understand why.

    After the 1977 matches, the Ryder Cup expanded the GB&I side to include golfers from all of Continental Europe, too.

    1977: U.S. 12.5, Great Britain & Ireland 7.5
    1975: U.S. 21, Great Britain & Ireland 11
    1973: U.S. 19, Great Britain & Ireland 13
    1971: U.S. 18.5, Great Britain 13.5
    1969: U.S. 16, Great Britain 16 (U.S. retains the cup)
    1967: U.S. 23.5, Great Britain 8.5
    1965: U.S. 19.5, Great Britain 12.5
    1963: U.S. 23, Great Britain 9
    1961: U.S. 14.5, Great Britain 9.5
    1959: U.S. 8.5, Great Britain 3.5

    1947: U.S. 11, Great Britain 1
