Ryder Cup: Pivotal win over Tiger gives Rahm "best feeling"

Jon Rahm said beating Tiger Woods to help Europe win back the Ryder Cup on Sunday was the best feeling of his life.

The Spaniard clinched a 2 and 1 win over American great Woods to move Europe three points clear after a difficult day on which the United States threatened an incredible fightback.

And having ensured his team retained complete control, Rahm thought of late, great compatriot Seve Ballesteros and his grandfather as he reflected on an incredible moment.

It doesn't get any better than this, says Rahm

"No, [it doesn't get any better,] to be honest," he told Sky Sports.

"I played really good all day and didn't make any putts. At 16, there was a short putt and I missed. I hit a couple of good ones at 14. It was only fitting to hit those two shots at the beginning of 17 and make that putt.

"There's a lot going on for me right now, to be honest: the memory of Seve, many people, my grandpa, who would have loved to be here right now. He passed away at the PGA and he was my biggest fan.

"Then to beat Tiger, one of the all-time greats, if not the greatest, on a Sunday for a pivotal point. I was aware of it. It's the best feeling of my life."
