Why not? He's your best player.

American or not, he seems like a real asshole.

Not exactly relevant, but those white trousers are horrible. You can see their legs in certain light.

Absolutely. Before this season I was hoping for an other Dutch speaking player, but no way he could have done better :-)


He's doing great. A bit nervous yesterday at the start but very solid now.

Hope he can keep this up for the remainder of the holes and for tomorrow's singles.

PGA Tour keeps tweeting McIlroy, in full leonine lion roaring Rory mode. Just let it out, McIlroy, let those repressed feelings go :-P

Rors went OB trying to make birdie to close out the match. Why not if you're 4 up?

The American fans are the rowdiest bunch I've ever seen, I don't recall the USA players receiving so much grief at Gleneagles, there's been some pretty poor behaviour IMO.

They shouted 'fore' when Webb Simpson was teeing off for the first time. According to Rory's critique that's rooting for bad shots. Take off the halo and be honest.

That wasn't a couple of idiots cheering that ball into the water. That was hundreds, if not thousands. Doesn't sit right with me.

Rory is usually a nice guy, but after that exchange with DJ trying to throw him off his shot with BS over who's away that moniker may fit Rors too today. Now who's looking like a hyper-competitive jerk?

If you play the heel expect to get a reaction from the crowd.  I was in my house cheering Rory's ball heading into the water.

Cheering against the opponent is what goes on in EVERY other team sport...I don't think team golf should have to be any different. It's a different animal than individual golf and I think is allowed to be treated differently. If I were in those stands I don't think I'd be vocally doing it, but as long as folks aren't shouting in back swings or the like, then I don't think it's totally out of line.

No, I don't expect it. USA has had plenty of assholes playing up to the crowd in Europe, and I've never heard anything remotely like this.

Anyway, USA really impressive in the last hour. That second match is huge.
