Ryder Cup 2018: Captain Thomas Bjorn says Europe players left egos behind

Ryder Cup 2018: Captain Thomas Bjorn says Europe players left egos behind

Europe "left their egos at the door" in their Ryder Cup win over the United States, said captain Thomas Bjorn.

Splits in the US team have emerged after they lost 17½-10½ in France.

Patrick Reed said Jordan Spieth did not want to play with him, despite the pair previously winning five points together while Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson reportedly had a bust-up.

"There's no superstars in our team," said Bjorn. "When they are in the team room, they leave egos at the door."

The US, boasting 11 of the world's top 17 players, were favourites beforehand to win on European soil for the first time in 25 years.

But before the event only three had played a competitive round at Le Golf National, near Paris, and Europe lifted the trophy for the seventh time in the last nine events.

After victory, the winners talked of their team spirit, a 'love-in' on their WhatsApp messaging group and Bjorn's promise to get a tattoo should they win.
