NEW YORK (AP) - The Ryder Cup's final day has drawn its highest preliminary television rating since the last big comeback 13 years ago.

Sunday's coverage on NBC earned a 4.1 overnight rating and 9 share. The network said Monday that was the best since a 6.3/15 for the U.S. comeback in 1999 in Brookline, Mass.

This time, the Europeans rallied from the same 10-6 deficit to win 14 1/2 -13 1/2.

The rating was up 21 percent from the last Ryder Cup in the U.S., a 3.4 for the event in Louisville, Ky., in 2008.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned to a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight ratings measure the country's largest markets.
