McGinley right to break up Rory McIlroy pairing, says McDowell

Graeme McDowell believes European Ryder Cup skipper Paul McGinley made the right call by not pairing him up with compatriot Rory McIlroy.

There was a lot of talk before the event that the two compatriots would not be paired up together for the first time in three Ryder Cups and in the end Paul McGinley decided that it would be better to break up the pairing.

And McDowell believes this was the right call as the two of them did not have a record that was overwhelmingly brilliant over the past two editions of the event and at best, the two of them could have played a couple of foursomes. He also hailed the decision making of McGinley throughout the event and considers the win for Team Europe as a testimony to his skills as a skipper.
