It's too bad the Ryder Cup is over because it was filled with amazing moments, but perhaps none were better than American Patrick Reed taunting Rory Mcllroy after Mcllroy buried one of the tournament's best putts.

Mcllroy left his tee shot on the Par-3 eighth hole 55-feet short, but he made the ball go to its home with a perfect birdie putt – and his reaction was priceless. A fired up Mcllroy belted out over the roar of the crowd, "I can’t hear you" – clearly aimed at American fans, according to the New York Post.

But Reed, just inside the fringe on the hole, responded with a perfect putt of his own, halving the hole.

Reed pumped both of his fists and waived his index finger at Mcllroy like he was former NBA shot blocker Dikembe Mutombo.

Watch it unfold right here.

Mcllroy was the center of attention after he took a bow in front of American fans after making a birdie putt on Friday.

And Reed must have remembered because he took a bow of his own after tying a hole with Mcllroy earlier in the round.
