Phil Mickelson claims the Ryder Cup was a waste of his time as the misery from USA’s defeat at Le Golf National rumbles on.

Jim Furyk’s side were humbled in Paris, defeated by a margin of 17½-10½, and it was Mickelson’s tugged tee shot into the water at the 16th which ensured Europe’s lead became unassailable.

All told, the 48-year-old endured a miserable weekend at Le Golf National. Mickelson and Bryson Dechambeau were convincingly beaten 5&4 by Sergio Garcia and Alex Noren in Friday’s foursomes before he was left out for the entirety of Saturday’s play.
