Rory McIlroy urges Ryder Cup fans in Europe not to stoop to level of loud-mouthed Yanks
RORY McILROY has urged European golf fans not to stoop to the level of Hazeltine’s American boo-boys in two years' time because they’re better than that.
The Team Europe talisman bore the brunt of the abuse from the rowdy crowd in Minnesota and even confronted one fan in an angry exchange on Saturday afternoon.
But after the dust had settled on a bruising 17-11 defeat, McIlroy insisted that he’d hate to see Europe’s home crowd retaliate in 2018 at Le Golf National in Paris because that would degenerate the reputation of one of the greatest events in golf.
