Shane Lowry ultimately romped home after lighting up the course, building a sizeable lead with a box office Saturday outing at Royal Portrush.
He received a monster homecoming when he brought the Claret Jug to Clara in Co Offaly, drawing thousands of fans onto the streets to celebrate in the evening sunshine.
Moment of the Decade: Ireland's All Black win
In the opposite corner is Ireland finally beating the All Blacks, in the unusual surrounds of Chicago's Soldier Field.
Ireland ultimately beat New Zealand by an 11 point winning-margin - chalking-up 40 points against the All Blacks 29 despite a second-half onslaught from the Rugby World Cup holders.
Before kick-off, Ireland paid tribute to Anthony Foley by forming a 'Figure 8' to staredown the Haka.
Joe Schmidt's side stopped the All Blacks recond-breaking run of 18 consecutive test wins.
They created their slice of history in the Windy City days after the Chicago Cubs ended their own 108-year drought by winning the baseball World Series.
That victory drew 5 million people onto the city's streets to celebrate (and meant there was no shortage of parties for Irish supporters to join).
Jordi Murphy, CJ Stander, Conor Murray, Simon Zebo and Robbie Henshaw all crossed the whitewash for Ireland.
Yesterday the O'Donovan's Olympic heroics progressed to the tournament's quarter-finals - beating Pat Hickey's arrest in the Round of 16s, 'Rio Deby.'
That moment will face Shane Long's goal against Germany in the next round.
