Rory McIlroy clashes with foul-mouthed USA Ryder Cup fan after Caroline Wozniacki heckle
Rory McIlroy found himself confronted by a foul-mouthed US fan at Hazeltine as Europe set up a tense final day at the Ryder Cup.
The Ulsterman had the lout ejected after he shouted abuse, while Ian Poulter had another spectator thrown out for heckling Danny Willett.
McIlroy, who won his fourball alongside Belgian rookie Thomas Pieters, said: “The plan is to try to get them fired up and that gets us fired.
"You have to keep your concentration, but it’s tough at times.
“It fuels me a lot. The more they shouted, the better we played.
"I hope they shout at us tomorrow.”
