Rory McIlroy dropping some great one-liners in his Ryder Cup press conference just now. -- "I bowed to them, said you're welcome for the show," after sinking an eagle putt to close out his four-ball win Friday afternoon. -- "I thought about the celebration before I hit the (eagle) putt," that sealed his four-ball victory. As usual, a very open and honest McIlroy. Team USA 5, Team Europe 3.

Rory McIlroy on not shaking Austin Johnson's hand: "Oh, did I? I get on with AJ really well. I'll text him. I'll have to go apologize."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Rory McIlroy: "Even before I hit that putt, I wanted to put an exclamation point on the session. I was thinking about that celebration."

Rory McIlroy's villainous bows to the enemy crowd just took me back to Reggie Miller at Madison Square Garden.

Rory McIlroy: "It was hostile out there. Reactions like that on the last, I just want to let people know how much it means to us."

Rory McIlroy's theatric bows to the enemy crowd just took me back to Reggie Miller at Madison Square Garden.

Rory McIlroy with an eagle to win the match, followed by all sorts of screams and fist pumps and bows to the crowd. Too much swag.

Ryan Moore tried to keep himself and J.B. Holmes in their fourballs match, but it proved too little, too late. Sergio Garcia -- who often looks like world's best putter at this event and this event alone -- rolled in five birdies to team with countryman Rafa Cabrera-Bello for the 3 and 2 victory.

Brandt Snedeker and Brooks Koepka didn't play this morning, but never trailed as partners this afternoon, steamrolling the European duo of Danny Willett and Martin Kaymer for what is very likely going to be the only U.S. point of the afternoon.

Brandt Snedeker after win: "My job was to make putts and let Brooks Koepka do what he does." They both did what they do.

Jack Nicklaus gave talk to U.S. team Thursday night. .. He apparently wasn't available to do same prior to afternoon matches. #RyderCup

It took exactly 10 hours and 1 minute from this morning's start, but Europe finally has its first point on the board, as Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson beat Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, making nine birdies in a 5 and 4 win.
