THE RYDER CUP

September 29, 2018

Sergio Garcia Rory McIlroy

Guyancourt, France

Q. The sixth straight point for Europe in this Ryder Cup. How would you describe the emotions of this match?
SERGIO GARCÍA: I think you could see there on the last putt. It was great. I think we played really, really well. We gelled extremely well because a couple of times, he was out of the hole. I made par, a good par or birdie. When I was out of the hole, he made a couple of great birdies. I think we gelled, and that's what you need in fourballs.

I've always enjoyed playing with Rory. He knows that. He's a good friend, and today wasn't any different.

Q. Speaking about being good friends, you guys get along very well off the golf course. On the golf course, you're a very good team. When you have somebody who can pick you up when you're down or vice versa, what is the mentality going into the day?
RORY McILROY: Yeah, it's very important, especially for me, I didn't have my best stuff out there again this morning, but any time I didn't hit a great shot Sergio was always on my shoulder with encouragement telling me to come on, and that's great to hear that from someone like him; and his passion and fire for The Ryder Cup is second to none and it's pretty infectious. We had a great time out there.
