Three weeks have passed since the last edition of the Ryder Cup, in which the European team dominated and deservedly won this prestigious competition. The Europeans showed what passion they had, and succeeded in their intentions.

Rory McIlroy was one of the golfers who most wanted to win. It could be noticed from the first day. His performance at the Ryder Cup was also marked by an incident that you all remember. Rory and Joe LaCava (caddy) had a confrontation in the car park.

Previously, Joe LaCava waved his hat in Rory's direction. McIlroy was furious, and there was an argument between them. Now, when some time has passed, and when the tensions have disappeared, McIlroy has confirmed that he has no regrets about that moment; "Jeez, no, not at all.

I felt like what happened in the car park galvanised the team and it benefited us."- McIlroy said, as per Playing in such a competition can bring such moments. Both had to act differently in such a situation.

However, the most important is that things calmed down, and LaCava and the Northern Irishman had a chat afterward in which they 'sorted out' everything. "Things happen in the heat of the moment. Tensions were high but Joe came into the European team room on Sunday night and had a drink and a chat.

I have had a great relationship with Joe over the years and that wasn't going to change."- he continued.

Rory McIlroy was motivated by incident

McIlroy didn't talk much about what happened, but it had a huge impact on him.

Such an incident seems to have awakened the McIlroy that fans want. "The incident happened. I didn't want to meet anyone on the Sunday morning because I wanted what happened to fuel me and my focus was on making sure Europe won the Ryder Cup, and then we will sort all the other stuff out after. And it is all fine. We are all friends."
