The duo of Northern Ireland, great friends off the field and partners at ease about him, had lost one and halved one of their first two matches, both against Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar but in a dominant form of the third session.
They won the first hole Saturday afternoon and were never taken thereafter; they went on the March 1 & triumph.
“Here, this is pure fiction, fans have been fantastic,” said McDowell after finishing Sunday’s game on the green from 17 to the European level set at 6-6 with four matches still on fourball the course.
“It’s great to play with one of my best friends is a real honor to play with this man,” added the United States this year’s Open champion.
The couple had three European after seven holes when, in their frustration, they were forced to put an end to darkness on Saturday evening.
The Americans pulled one back on the restart when Johnson sank a putt from 35 feet, but could make no further inroads in the following six holes. When they threaten the 15th, McDowell drained a long putt for a birdie correspondent.
On Saturday, the duo of Northern Ireland had looked set to win when they were two with two to play and then one and much closer to the axis after their tee shots on 17.
However, Cink sunk a monster putt, McIlroy missed from six feet on a good note, the Americans also won the 18th to claim an unexpected point after the opening fourballs between the same players had been halved.
This adjustment must have been on the Northern Irish spirit, when Johnson holed another long putt Sunday to win the 16th and cut the lead to two.
This time, however, Europeans kept their composure as McDowell put his tee shot on 17 safely on the green with two putts to win the match, McIlroy has used one of them, as has dug a 20-feet to the point.
“We walked out disappointed yesterday because we thought we should have won this match,” said McDowell.
“But we went straight to the next session and got underway and we wanted to go back to today and leave quickly because we knew that the U.S. would be charged.
“That putt on 15 was a big putt. These guys just keep sinking putts, Stewart Cink beat us with the putter in the first two games, but having this guy (McIlroy) makes my life easy.
“We talked about this for some years, pleasing to win a point in the Ryder Cup, he was great, everything we imagined it could be.”
McIlroy said: “At the exit of the seventh yesterday, I do not let me disappointed, but we could not get something from the match 18.
