Rory McIlroy may be the rising young gun of the European Tour, but he definitely views the Ryder Cup differently than his European compatriots. The 20-year-old Brit has spoken out by saying that individual competition is more important to him than the Ryder Cup.

McIlroy said that “The Ryder Cup, it’s a great spectacle but an exhibition at the end of the day. It’s not that important an event for me.”

“At the end of the day it’s (the Ryder Cup) a great event, probably the best spectacle in golf. But sometimes it’s been taken a little too seriously.”

If it’s not that important to him, then I wonder if he will give up the spot that he will likely have for someone who really wants to be on the team. Probably not…
