European Ryder Cup team savour McIlroy's FedEx Cup win


Rory McIlroy's FedEx Cup triumph was understandably celebrated with gusto by the rest of the European Ryder Cup team as attention now turns to Hazeltine. 

The world number three will head into the biennial golfing battle between Europe and the United States - which gets under way on Friday - high in confidence after a thrilling play-off win to claim the Tour Championship on Sunday and with it seal an improbable FedEx Cup success. 

There was a triple dose of US disappointment as McIlroy beat Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell in the play-off to dash Dustin Johnson's FedEx Cup hopes in the process. 

And video footage showed McIlroy's European team-mates relishing the moment the Northern Irishman came out on top following four play-off holes.
