“It was very cool to have three points with Rory,” said Pieters, playing his first Ryder Cup. “I think we may be a team for a while.”

“Yes, look for us in Paris in two years,” he said.
McIlroy and Pieters are each 3-1 overall for the week. Pieters will be the first European Ryder Cup rookie to play five matches since 1999, when three Euros did it.
