The Ryder Cup continues to bubble away nicely, after Europe fought back from 4-0 down to within a point of Team USA.

And there’s one man in particular who is taking the competition by the scruff of the neck. His name is Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy breathing fire – nails 10-footer birdie to stay 4 up going to 11th, upper-cutting the air like McGuigan, roaring defiance at stands

He’s had his troubles with a partisan American crowd.

Rory McIlroy now getting booed. Ugly, just ugly. #RyderCup

But there’s no question who’s coming out on top between Rory and the spectators.

If there were Ryder Cup hecklers at every major McIlroy would be on double figures by now #Pumped

McIlroy is literally strutting like Derek Zoolander. Rightly, too.

He seems to have it all under control.

McIlroy on crowd: You just need to quieten them down and after the front 9 we felt they weren't as vocal

Just don’t let the emotion get the better of you, Rory.

If – when – McIlroy wins this match, don't be surprised if he rips his shirt off, rarely have I seen a golfer so pumped up.

At times, the game looks simple in McIlroy’s hands.

McIlroy on par 5.
Driver. 8 Iron. Putt.

And everyone is keen to see these two form players go head to head.

I think what everyone wants to see is Rory McIlroy vs Patrick Reed #makeithappen

Team Europe certainly need McIlroy to continue his heroics if they’re going to make a match of this.

Wonderful from McIlroy on 9th, mid-iron to 3ft. Dragging this European team towards a possible overnight lead, both talisman and leader

Breathtaking exhibition of sporting brilliance by Rory McIlroy today

Or should we say … Roary? We’re terribly sorry.
