Tiger Woods believes the United States' Ryder Cup victory at Hazeltine has created a special bond between the team that will last forever.

Following three consecutive losses to Europe, the USA regained the trophy in style at Hazeltine, winning Sunday's singles matches 7.5 - 4.5 to secure a 17-11 success.

In the past, the American side has been accused of lacking the spirit displayed by their European counterparts - with Woods himself highlighted as one such example of individuality.

But the 14-time major champion, a vice-captain under Davis Love III at Hazeltine, feels the US' 2016 vintage are a special group.

"For me, as a player that's been on these teams, to be on a different side of it, to be on the vice captaincy side of it has meant so much to me, to get to know these guys on a different level and to know how hard a job it is to do this," he said in a media conference.

"I learned a lot and I became really close to a lot of these guys, and it's been just an honour to be part of it.

"And to be part of getting to know these 12 guys, and these vice-captains and our captain on a deeper level has meant so much to me.

"The relationships that we've forged here this week and actually before this week, these are bonds that will last a lifetime.

"As a player, I've been a part of that with these teams, and as a non-player, it's still the same. You still have the same bonds; they grow deep.

"And being a part of the team - I didn't actually hit a golf shot, but to go out there and be with these guys, we are truly a team. And we have that mindset coming here with our captain and we did it, we accomplished it and we won it together."
