Published Add your comment

One of Europe’s most talented golfers Danny Willett summed up his experience in the Ryder Cup that concluded on Sunday in brutal fashion during the press conference.

Europe were defeated by USA 17-11, but it was Willett’s performance that drew criticism from all quarters as he won just two holes out of 54 over three sessions.

Speaking to the press in the aftermath of the tournament, the British golfer was asked to explain his overall experience during his first outing in the Ryder Cup.

Much to the amusement of the players and journalists present, Willett replied saying: “S***.”

With nothing noteworthy to say about his performance, he continued: “Sorry, would you like me to elaborate? Really s***.”

The answer conjured a series of laughter all around, although the Sheffield-born professional didn’t complain about the distraction and disruption caused at the Hazeltine National Golf Club as he took the field.

However, Rory McIlroy, who represented Europe, acknowledged the victory of the United States, but claimed that Europe will be back to their absolute best in Paris.

There were instances when golfers from Europe were the subject of abuse from fans at the Minneapolis-based course.

But the former world number one called for calm and reiterated that there should not be any retaliation when USA travel to the French capital to defend their title.

He said: “First and foremost, we wouldn’t encourage any sort of retaliation. That’s just not who we are. That’s not what we do. We want to play this tournament in the manner in which it should be played.”

The 27-year-old disclosed that every member of both teams have immense respect for each other which was being tarnished by a small percentage of abusive fans present.

“We have no problem with anyone on either team, and really, it’s just a very small minority; 95 percent of the people out there, the American gallery are absolutely fantastic, they really are.”

After this appalling display in North America, Europe will definitely be aiming for a better showing when the tournament takes place at their home venue next.

The victory of USA, finally regaining the Ryder Cup after a gap of eight years, must be commended as their efforts provided fruitful results against a strong European side.
