Video: Europeans discuss Ryder Cup victory with Piers Morgan

By Alex Myers

As a British journalist, Piers Morgan didn't hide who he was rooting for during the Ryder Cup. Not surprisingly, he then welcomed three members of the victorious European team onto his show the first chance he got.

On Monday, Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell and Justin Rose sat down for an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." Here's how the host set it up on Twitter:

"Warning to all Americans - do not watch my #CNN show for the next 15 minutes. It's going to be an unashamed Brit #RyderCup gloating orgy."

Turns out, that was a bit of an over-statement. A civil conversation ensued, focusing on the topics you might expect, from the team using the memory of Seve Ballesteros as inspiration, to trying to quiet a boisterous U.S. crowd at Medinah. Here's the clip:

On Tuesday morning, Morgan tweeted about an office putting contest he was having with Poulter, who was there for an appearance on CNBC's "Squawk Box." Apparently, Poulter won 2 and 1. After the way the Ryder Cup stalwart putted at Medinah during his perfect 4-0 week, did you expect anything different?
