BBC Sport - Ryder Cup 2016: Rory McIlroy on Hazeltine's 'hostile environment'

'It's a hostile environment out there'

Rory McIlroy says playing in front of the US fans at the Ryder Cup is a hostile environment.

McIlroy bowed to the crowd as he holed the eagle putt that completed his fourballs win with Thomas Pieters over Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar.

On his celebration, world number three McIlroy said: "You want to let them know how much it means to you."

After losing 4-0 in the foursomes, Europe fought back to reduce the USA's lead to 5-3 on day one.
