Rory McIlroy: I can't say enough about Paul McGinley

Europe players full of praise for Irishman

Europe's triumphant Ryder Cup players have heaped praise on Irishman Paul McGinley.

McGinley received public support from the likes of Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter and Luke Donald when the post was being decided in January 2013.

Sergio Garcia, who beat Jim Furyk on the 18th, said: "He has been so methodical. Every single aspect he needed to touch on, he did. I've been fortunate to have a lot of great captains but Paul did things a little bit differently but with great style.

"He has been a little bit more of a modern captain, taking care of every single detail. He knew what we had was good and working but improved it without changing it."

McIlroy added: "I can't say enough about the captain. Paul McGinley has been absolutely immense this week. He has left no stone unturned. He has given this week a lot of thought over the last two years. I am just glad it worked out for him."
