Meet Cop Who Gave Rory Ride

The police officer who got Rory McIlroy to Medinah (Ill.) Country Club in time for his tee time in Sunday’s singles matches at the Ryder Cup has been identified: Lombard (Ill.) Deputy Police Chief Pat Rollins. CBS Chicago tracked down Rollins, who was working player security at the team hotel. When Ryder Cup officials realized McIlroy wasn’t at the course for his 11:25 a.m. tee time — McIlroy thought he was teeing off an hour later because he’d seen the times in Eastern Time — they sent someone to his room. “She just went up and said, ‘Rory, are you OK?’ and he answered the door and said, ‘Yes, what’s the matter?’” and (she) said, ‘You’re on the tee,’” Don Larson of Medinah Country Club told the network.
