ATLANTA -- Give this to the Europeans: they have a wicked sense of humor.

On Friday, U.S. captain Davis Love III boldly proclaimed that the American Ryder Cup roster was "the best golf team, maybe, ever assembled." Following his round on Saturday at the Tour Championship -- a bogey-free day that vaulted him into contention -- Rory McIlroy was asked about Love's assertion.

McIlroy didn't miss a beat, crafting the perfect response in one simple sentence.

Well played, Rors. Well played.
