Background: The United States overran Britain and Ireland int he final day's Single's matches to via the Ryder Cup golf trophy by 19 points to 13 at Muirfield, Scotland on Saturday (22 September).
After the first two day's play, the teems were level on eight points each but the Americans turned on the power on the final day, losing only three of the 16 Singles matches. The United States wan the eight morning Singles by 5 1/2 points to 2 1/2, and the afternoon series by a similar margin.
Gay Brewer and Lee Trevino both inflicted crushing six and five defeats on their British opponents in the afternoon, as the Americans stormed to their 16th victory in 20 contests since the biennial series began in 1927.
Brewer overpowered the young Scotsman Bernard Gallagher and Trevino hammered Neil Coles, one of the veterans of the British team.
