NEW YORK (AP) - The Ryder Cup's final day drew its highest preliminary television rating since the last big comeback 13 years ago.
Sunday's coverage on NBC earned a 4.1 overnight rating and 9 share. NBC said Monday that was the best since a 6.3/15 for the U.S. comeback in 1999 in Brookline, Mass.
This time, the Europeans rallied from the same 10-6 deficit to win 14 1/2 -13 1/2.
The rating was up 21 percent from the last Ryder Cup in the U.S., a 3.4 for the event in Louisville, Ky., in 2008.
