Patrick Reed taunts Rory McIlroy with finger wag after trading huge putts

BY foxsports • October 2, 2016

If you decided to spend your Sunday watching the NFL, you're missing one of the greatest singles matches in Ryder Cup history.

Team Europe's Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed combined for eight birdies and an eagle over the first nine holes at Hazeltine National Golf Club, capped by jaw-dropping back-to-back putts at the eighth green to remain all square. 

McIlroy's tee shot at the par-3 8th hole left him with a 55-foot birdie putt - and he drilled it to heap pressure on Reed, and screamed to the American crowd "I can't hear you."

Reed responded by hitting a long putt to halve the hole and steal a win away from McIlroy, then turned to him and wagged his finger like Dikembe Mutombo for the second time in the round. McIlroy could only laugh and walk to the next tee.
