Europe reclaimed the Ryder Cup with a 17.5-10.5 victory over the United States at Le Golf National in Paris.

Here, we look at the contest in numbers:

0: Three American players failed to register a point – Bryson DeChambeau, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

4: Tommy Fleetwood scored four points, a joint-record for a European rookie, equalling the performance of Thomas Pieters two years ago.

5: Francesco Molinari scored five points, the best performance ever by a European player in the Ryder Cup.

6: The European pair of Alex Noren and Sergio Garcia, and the American partnership of Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson, both managed to run up triple-bogey sixes on the par-three second hole in their foursomes match on Saturday. It was an unlikely way to see a hole halved.

9: Europe have won nine of the last 12 Ryder Cups.

12: All 12 members of the European team contributed at least a point.

Making history: Sergio Garcia.

Making history: Sergio Garcia.

18: Only six of the 28 matches over the three days reached the 18th hole.

22: After losing twice, Mickelson has now lost more matches than any other player in Ryder Cup history. Woods has now lost 21 after four defeats this week.

25.5: Points now scored by Sergio Garcia in his Ryder Cup career, a new record, surpassing the previous mark of 25 set by Sir Nick Faldo.

6,900: Number of seats in the grandstand behind the first tee.

7,000: People worked on the event at Le Golf National throughout the week, including 1,050 marshals and 650 police officers.
