Well, folks. That's it. After three frantic days in northern France, Europe got the job done to complete a resounding victory over the United States to regain the Ryder Cup.

The splash of Phil Mickelson's golf ball was replaced by the splash of spraying champagne, as Thomas Bjorn's men began the celebrations that are sure to last long into the night and, most likely, into Monday morning.

So as the dust settles on another memorable Ryder Cup, take a look at Omnisport's final daily diary from Le Golf National.
