The Europeans once again confirmed their dominance at Wentworth. The fact is that all the players are in shape and ready for the biggest challenge! The Ryder Cup is a tournament where everyone gives their best, given the importance of it.

Rory McIlroy will probably be the golfer who will get the most attention. The Northern Irishman has put in solid performances in the last few weeks, but his experience and quality will certainly shine through at the Ryder Cup.

It's awesome,” said Rory, as quoted by Going to Rome turned out to be a wonderful thing. The players got to know each other better, of course, and understood what awaits them. Such experience will be crucial for them before such an important tournament.

Most of them know what Donald expects from them. It's up to them to show it in a few weeks. “We're in a good spot. We had a really good day in Rome on Monday. The team's been shaping up really well for the last couple of months, everyone's been in pretty good form.

It's still almost two weeks away until the first ball is hit on the Friday morning, but we are all just so excited to get to Rome and get going. I'll get some really good work in Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday before heading to Rome, which will be great, and you know, once we get there, we still have four days of practice to do.

So I'll certainly be chomping at the bit to get started."

Rory McIlroy: The weekend was great

The Northern Irishman has been showing what is expected of him lately. Although Rory is far from what we want, it can be said that he inspires optimism, and that he could experience full glory at the Ryder Cup.

Rory expects his teammates to be great. "When you look at the weekend as a whole, to shoot 12 under and go from making the cut on the number to finishing in the top ten, it's a very solid two days of golf. I said on Friday night that at least making it to the weekend gave me the opportunity to go out and shoot a couple of good scores and feel a bit better about where my game is, and that's what I've done.

The weekend was great. I struggled a little bit Thursday and Friday, but I've been saying it's not too far away. I was 16th in Ireland last week, not a fair reflection of how I actually played. I played well. It's been two solid weeks.

Definitely things to improve and to work on to try and iron a couple of the misses out of my game, but everything's headed in the right direction”.
