The United States won the 8th Junior Ryder Cup Tuesday at Olympia Fields Country Club with a convincing 14 to 9 victory in the two-day tournament.

After a good showing in the foursome and mixed four-ball matches, the U.S. team of six boys and six girls won seven of the 12 singles matches and halved one match to win the Junior Ryder Cup for the third straight time.

The United States now owns a 4-3-1 overall record in the Junior Ryder Cup, and has not lost since 2004 at Westfield Country Club in Westfield Center, Ohio. The matches were halved 6-6 in 2006 at Celtic Manor in Wales.

Both teams are scheduled to play a 10-hole "friendship match" Wednesday afternoon at Medinah, featuring a combined mixed four-ball, with six groupings of four players that include one girl and one boy from both Europe and the United States.
