The first blow of the Ryder Cup has been struck and it's come from the hand of Phil Mickelson. The veteran American chose to take a dig on Team Europe, and Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell in particular, at Team USA's news conference this afternoon.
Speaking about his US teammates, Mickelson said:
Mickelson was of course alluding to the are they/aren't they friends situation between McDowell and McIlroy due to the legal battle between Rory and Horizon Sports Management.
An early and low blow from Mickelson.
