ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) - Paul Lawrie wasn't just battling Brandt Snedeker as Europe won the Ryder Cup. He also had to contend with the Medinah crowd.

Lawrie lost his opening fourballs match Saturday before beating Snedeker 5-3 in the biggest singles victory Sunday. But the Scot was unhappy at the behavior of the Chicago gallery and says captain Jose Maria Olazabal dealt with the issue in meetings at the start of last week.

Lawrie says "you get comments like, 'Top it! Shank it! You're going to lose.' Stuff like that on every shot you play." But that "makes it all the more satisfying on Sunday night when you're standing there with the Ryder Cup in front of you and they are not."

Europe retained the cup by winning 14 1/2 to 13 1/2.
