NOTE: Dubbed the "Battle of Brookline" the matches were marred by the abusive behaviour of some American fans. There was also the infamous "invasion" of the 17th green on the final day when Justin Leonard holed his 45-foot birdie putt. Over-excited American players and their wives charged onto the green in celebration. Once the commotion had died down, it was left for Jose Maria Olazabal to attempt his 22-foot birdie putt to halve the hole. Unsurprisingly he missed the putt.

NOTE: A tied score resulted in the USA retaining the Ryder Cup as holders. Most memorably, in the final match on the final green, Ryder Cup rookie Jack Nicklaus conceded a three-foot putt to his opponent Tony Jacklin. If Jacklin missed the putt the Americans would have won outright. The "concession" provided an unforgettable sporting gesture at the end of a contest that had been anything but sportsmanlike in the first two days.

Hudson, who funded the visitors' trip to the USA (Britain still being in the grip of post-WWII austerity and food-rationing). Despite the result (still the largest winning margin in Ryder Cup history) the event was hailed a great success. Most importantly it got the post-war era of Ryder Cup matches underway.
