Europe showed Sunday that it can win the Solheim Cup anywhere.

Caroline Hedwall became the first player in Solheim Cup history to win all five of her matches, holing a 4-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 1-up victory that assured the Europeans of retaining the cup. Moments later, Catriona Matthew finished off a rally to halve her match against Gerina Piller. That gave Europe 14½ points for its first win on American soil since this event started in 1990.

Charley Hull, the 17-year-old teenager and the youngest player in Solheim Cup history, capped off her amazing week by demolishing Pleasanton's Paula Creamer in a match that set the tone for Europe. Carlota Ciganda of Spain handed Morgan Pressel her first lost in singles in four appearances to go 3-0 for the week.

Europe still trails 8-5 in the competition, but this was the first time it has won back-to-back.

"It's a fantastic feeling right now," European captain Liselotte Neumann said. "I'm so proud of them. They played such good golf this week."

PGA Tour: Patrick Reed won the Wyndham Championship for his first PGA Tour title, beating Jordan Spieth with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.

Reed recovered from a drive on the par-4 10th that nearly went out of bounds and placed his second shot 7 feet from the pin. Spieth reached the green in two strokes, but his 10-foot birdie putt trickled less than an inch wide of the cup. Reed then sank his birdie putt to end it in Greensboro, N.C.

Reed earned $954,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points for winning the final tournament before the playoffs.

Reed and Spieth finished regulation at 14-under 266. Reed closed with a 4-under 66, and Spieth had a 65. John Huh (68) and Brian Harman (66) were two strokes behind.

Champions Tour: Bart Bryant won the Dick's Sporting Goods Open to become the Champions Tour's 1,000th tournament winner.

Bryant shot a tournament record-tying 10-under 62 in the second round and completed his first victory on the 50-and-over tour with a 72 in Endicott, N.Y. He finished at 16-under 200 to beat Russ Cochran (67) and Corey Pavin (69) by one shot.

It was Bryant's first victory since winning the 2005 Tour Championship.

U.S. Amateur: Matt Fitzpatrick won the U.S. Amateur, beating Oliver Goss 4 and 3 in the 36-hole final to become the first English champion of the tournament since 1911. Fitzpatrick won when Goss missed a par putt on No. 15 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.

Fitzpatrick earned an exemption for the U.S. Open and British Open and a likely invitation to the Masters. Fitzpatrick was the low amateur at the British Open.
