Rory McIlroy Shouts At The American Fans And Asks: "Who Can't Putt?"

The 2018 Ryder Cup is in full swing. See what I did there?

Europe are currently leading the US thanks to a number of impressive performances from the likes of Sergio Garcia, Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari.

But someone who is out to prove a point this afternoon is Rory McIlroy, who keeps proving his doubters wrong.

McIlroy struggled on the opening day, failing to record a single birdie in the four ball defeat.

That being said, he has recovered brilliantly and this moment on the third hole shows how much the Ryder Cup means. "Who can't putt? I can putt, I can putt!!!" he shouts to the US crowd.

This is what it's all about.

So how did McIlroy react to Friday's defeat? Justin Rose has revealed what the Irishman said in the dressing room and it sums him up perfectly.

"I had a little chat with [Rory McIlroy] in the team room, it was tough loss this morning,' Rose told Sky Sports.

"So to turn it around was important. I saw my playing partner on the way out and Henrik and I have had great vibes in this event. 'Rory just said, "Put some blue on board, give us something to chase." And we did that."

Will Europe go on and win the Ryder Cup or will the US stage one of the most historic comebacks of all time?

Let us know in the comments.
