Ryan Moore described his maiden Ryder Cup experience as "crazy" after he secured the point that saw the trophy return to the United States.
Only confirmed as Davis Love III's final selection a week before the event at Hazeltine, Moore finished with a 2-1 record, defeating Lee Westwood 1up to take the US past the 14.5 points they needed to regain the Cup.
Moore had been two down with three to play in that match, but won the final trio of holes to secure the USA's first victory since 2008, capping a remarkable few weeks for the 33-year-old.
With four top-10 finishes in his last six starts heading to Hazeltine, Moore continued that fine form against Europe and reflected on a whirlwind few days.
"It's been crazy," he said in a news conference. "I can't believe a week ago that I didn't even know I was going to be here, really.
"J.B. [Holmes] and Patrick [Reed] both showed up after I went two down on 15, and I walked off that green and I saw both of those guys and I said, 'All right, I'm going to do it for my team right now. I'm going to do something. I'm going to try and flip this match somehow.'
"And it's such a different feeling for what we do week-in and week-out on Tour. To do it for my team-mates, for my captains, for everybody who picked me, who wanted me to be on the team, I had all of that on my shoulders and I said, 'all right, I'm going to try and get points somehow today.'
"For that to actually work out was pretty incredible, and for that to actually be the point that clinched this beautiful Ryder Cup was incredible.
"I wouldn't want to do it with any other guys than there's sitting around me right now. It's been an absolute blast. I couldn't ask for better team-mates. And hopefully there's more to come."
