In Pictures: Ryder Cup Team Europe ratings

Luke Donald
Joint top-scorer for the home side so definitely justified his selection as a wild card. Remains perfect in six foursomes matches and has won 8.5 points out of a total of 11 in three Ryder Cups. Helped Lee Westwood take out Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker on Sunday, then hung on for a vital win over Jim Furyk in the singles.
Won 3, Lost 1, Halved 0 (3 points)
Mark: 9/10
Graeme McDowell
Monty's rock. For the first time in 40 years the European captain had the opportunity to put the US Open champion in the anchor match and, boy, did G-Mac come up trumps when the whole match came down to the last singles game out on the course. He earlier guided rookie Rory McIlroy through three of the most gruelling matches of the week.
Won 2, Lost 1, Halved 1 (2.5 points)
Mark: 10/10
Lee Westwood
Now Europe's new Monty, leading the way at the top of the order. The new world No 2 put blue on the board early yesterday but he ultimately lost. Highlight was alongside Donald giving the previously unbeatable Woods and Stricker a 6&5 thumping on Sunday. Immense performance after a seven-week injury break, only tiring against relentless Stricker in the singles.
Won 2, Lost 1, Halved 1 (2.5 points)
Mark: 9/10

Graeme McDowell may have holed the winning putt in the Ryder Cup but Europe's victory was definitely a team effort.
