Kaymer on handling pressure: 'That's the way we Germans are!'

Martin Kaymer spoke about the pressure he felt going into the 16th hole last night.

"[Europe captain] Jose Maria [Olazabal] told me, 'We need your point - and I don't really care how you do it, just deliver!'

"But I like those - that's very straight forward, that's the way we Germans are!"

Kaymer, left out all day on Saturday, was the one to deliver the point Europe required to match the biggest comeback in the Ryder Cup history.

Europe retain the Ryder Cup

Europe retained the Ryder Cup after completing an astonishing comeback to grab an unbeatable lead on the final day at Medinah Country Club today.

With one singles match still to be completed, the Europeans ensured they could not be beaten when Germany's Martin Kaymer defeated Steve Stricker one up to give the visitors a 14-13 lead.

As holders, Europe, who started the final day trailling 10-6, only needed to tie the match to retain the Cup they won in Wales two years ago.
