What he said: Day 2 quotes of the 2014 Ryder CupSeptember, 2014
We round up all the best player quotes from Saturday at the 2014 Ryder Cup where Europe took a 10-6 lead
“I played really well but the big reason why my game was so good the last two days was because I was playing next to Graeme.
“He’s been fantastic the last four days. He’s been amazing with me. First Ryder Cup is difficult to manage the stress and being nervous before the tee. I really tried to do the best for him the last two days.
“You know, the captain asked me to be a leader this week and I really wanted to embrace that role. He kind of trusted me with Victor. I knew he was good. I didn’t know he was this good. I can’t say how talented he is. He really is Europe’s next superstar.”
“We got off to a bad start, they got off to a great start, Take the both sides of that and there’s a gap. We tried to push them as far as we could but they played great and made it tough to make a comeback.”
“It’s still there. I like our squad, I like our guys. I’ve got faith in all of us.“
“Every credit to Paul for sending us out again, it was a ballsy move.
“There’s no easy games out here and it’s tough to win a point at the Ryder Cup. Jamie played great again today. I think we made one bogey which is pretty good in foursomes. It’s all about the team, I’m not trying to justify anything. We’re out there playing for each other and the captain.
“Somebody just told me I’ve gone past Seve’s points record and that means a lot.”
Funny things happen don’t they – second class post" – Ian Poulter Jamie Donaldson
“We just gelled really well. We brought the best out of each other in foursomes. We didn’t quite gel as well in the fourballs.
“I think the team is just getting on really well together. Everybody seems to work harder for each other. I think we are looking pretty good.”
“Funny things happen don’t they – second class post. It was a time where we needed something to happen.”
“We held strong out there. We were down most of the back nine so to get a half against Rickie and Jimmy who have been a very strong paring, is a good thing.”
