Report: Rory McIlroy, Joe LaCava clear air after Ryder Cup spat

GUIDONIA MONTECELIO, Italy -- European star Rory McIlroy and American caddie Joe LaCava reportedly met at the Ryder Cup to clear the air Sunday, one day after their disagreement on the 18th green spilled into a parking lot at Marco Simone Golf Club.

According to a report from NBC Sports, LaCava, who caddies for Patrick Cantlay, sent a text message to someone in McIlroy's team Saturday night.

"Love you guys, I have nothing but respect," LaCava wrote in the text, according to the report.

McIlroy and LaCava then met before Sunday's singles matches, according to NBC Sports.
