Ahead of the final day of Europe's dominant victory being repeated, in full, this Sunday on Sky Sports, two of the winning team from 2004 joined Josh Antmann to reflect on that historic week.
The pair discuss how confident the European team were going into the week at Oakland Hills and the influence captain Bernhard Langer had on the players, plus the decision to interact more with the American fans while out on the golf course.
McGinley reveals how late he found out he would be featuring in the opening session of Europe's 18.5-9.5 triumph, while the duo also reflect on how much Colin Montgomerie and Padraig Harrington's early win of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson galvanised the team.

Howell explains the nerves he felt as a Ryder Cup rookie when he stepped onto the tee for his opening match and how he required a last-minute swing change during tournament week, as well as talking about how the team felt going into the final day with such a commanding advantage.
Both players also provide plenty more behind-the-scenes tale from an incredible week in Michigan, including one about a caddie who thought he'd lost a putter and how the team celebrated retaining the trophy in style!
