Social Media Reacts To Emotional Rory McIlroy Interview

Going in to the Sunday singles, Team Europe faced a mountain of a challenge at the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits (opens in new tab).

Having lost all three of his matches, Rory McIlroy had come under some fire. However, the four-time Major champion showed his class and steely determination, defeating one of USA's in-form players, Xander Schauffele (opens in new tab) 3&2.

In an interview with Henni Koyack (opens in new tab) after his match, an emotional McIlroy broke down in tears saying “I love being part of this team. I love my teammates so much and I should have done more for them this week.”

The interview was a real tear jerker, with people taking to Twitter to voice their thoughts and support of the 32-year-old.

Matt joined Golf Monthly in February 2021 covering weekend news, before also transitioning to equipment and testing.

Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4. To date, his best round came in 2016, where he shot a six-under-par 66 having been seven-under through nine holes. He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
