Twitter Reacts to Stunning USA Collapse on Final Day of the Ryder Cup

The United States team was at the wrong end of one of the worst sports collapses in recent memory, as Davis Love III's squad fell to the Europeans at the Medinah Country Club by a score of 14.5 to 13.5.

Despite finishing play Saturday with a 10-6 lead, the Americans turned in an abysmal performance in the final round on Sunday.

It came down to Steve Stricker at the end, as the 45-year-old veteran needed to win his round against Martin Kaymer. But victory was not in the cards for America, as the latter sunk an 18th-hole putt to seal the deal.

Twitter exploded once the results were finalized, and as always, you can find the best of the best right here.
