Rory McIlroy

Ian Poulter


Q. Crucial match for Europe, tell us about that chip shot and how much pressure you were feeling and tell us about the shot itself.
RORY McILROY: Yeah, Rickie hit a great shot in there out of the -- seen way too many fairway woods out of the rough from him this week to the greens. He hit a great shot. And I didn't have the best of lies there, but luckily Ian hit a great shot in there before me. So that took a little bit of the pressure off. But there's only one thing in my mind which is try and hole it. Felt like it was going to turn a little bit more than it did, but it was good to get the 4 and get the halve.

Q. You were first to admit you were not at your best today but you come to the 15th hole, looks like you're going 2-down and out comees the postman --
IAN POULTER: Funny things happen, don't they. Second-class post --

RORY McILROY: (Laughing).

IAN POULTER: I guess a couple of quick birdies to start the match off with which was great, and fell asleep in the middle. But you know, a time where we needed something to happen, Rickie hit a fantastic shot and obviously looking like that match is going to go 2-,up and then obviously holing that and turning 1-over on the next hole makes a massive difference.

Q. The Saturday afternoon at Medinah you must have been remembering when he chipped that in and feeding off those memories.
RORY McILROY: Yeah, as soon as he chipped in, I was like, here we go again. And then he held a putt on 16, too. But 17 was playing tough, so it was a tough birdie hole today. But we held strong out there, and you know, we're down most of the back nine to get a halve again, with Rickie and Jimmy who have been a very strong pairing this week is a good thing.
