Rory McIlroy is the world's No. 1 golfer, a four-time major winner, multi-millionaire and the focal point of Europe's Ryder Cup team, but he was like a wide-eyed schoolboy in the presence of former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson.Ferguson, the all-conquering Scot who led United to 13 Premier League titles and a host of other trophies in his 26 years at Old Trafford, gave the team a pep-talk Tuesday night and McIlroy, a United fan, said it was the highlight of his week so far.However, it was a conference call with Seve Ballesteros, seven months before the Spaniard's death from a brain tumor, that hit home for McIlroy, somewhat nervously awaiting his Ryder Cup debut four years ago.Sergio Garcia, appearing in his seventh Ryder Cup this week, said McIlroy had come to appreciate the importance of the competition.
