Austria's best golfer raved about the experience and the great honor despite the debacle of the Europeans.

Wiesberger after Ryder Cup:

The US golfers celebrated their triumph at the Ryder Cup wildly and exuberantly. Europe's selection conceded a historic 9:19 defeat on Sunday (local time) in the prestigious continental comparison on the shores of Lake Michigan. It was the ultimate victory of a team in the modern era of the Ryder Cup. The Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, who did not win a point on his cup debut, still raved afterwards.

The Europeans only won three singles on the Whistling Straits Golf Course on the final day. After their 5:11 deficit after the first two days, the guests were far from catching up. Wiesberger also failed to win points in his duel with the former world number one Brooks Koepka. The Burgenlander should still have enjoyed his debut at the Ryder Cup.

“It's hard to describe. First Ryder Cup, just different, the camaraderie, the common room, the banter, the fun and the joy. Even in disappointing situations like the weekend, it was incredible. It's a great honor to be part of this team and I hope it won't be the last time. I will do everything for it. This week was unique for me, ”said Wiesberger in a statement on the Ryder Cup website.

Of course, the 35-year-old imagined the appearance differently. “But I think we were close, in crucial moments it didn't go well for us. That makes it look a lot easier in the end than it felt with the many games. We are now starting anew and will tackle it again in 2023, ”said Wiesberger.

The Europeans are now facing hard times. You will have to think about how you want to position your team for the future. It is questionable whether the three English veterans Lee Westwood (48 years old), Ian Poulter (45) and Paul Casey (44) will still be part of the 44th Ryder Cup in Rome in two years' time.

In the US team, Captain Steve Stricker even saw the beginning of a new era in golf. “This is a new era. These guys are young. You want it. You are motivated. They came here to win. I could see it in her eyes, ”said the 54-year-old. In contrast to the Europeans, none of the Americans has already celebrated their 40th birthday. The best point collector was “Senior” Dustin Johnson. The 37-year-old world number two won all five games in which he was used.

Superstar Tiger Woods was also enthusiastic about the team's performance. “A dominant performance by @RyderCupUSA! I can't wait to see you all and celebrate with you! ”Tweeted the 15-time major champion, who is still recovering from the aftermath of his car accident.
