LEAKED: European Ryder Cup group chat sees Luke Donald worry about Rory McIlroy!

The European Ryder Cup group chat has been *leaked* to GolfMagic following the BMW PGA Championship, and it would appear as though captain Luke Donald is a bit worried about Rory McIlroy's well-being on his mate's stag do in Mykonos. 

Donald specifically warned McIlroy to take things easy on the trip when speaking to him about it earlier this month.

McIlroy headed straight over to Mykonos following the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Sunday. 

Taking a deeper dive into the latest text conversation from the European Ryder Cup team, and there's plenty of excitement building with just a week to go until Ryder Cup week gets underway in Rome, Italy. 

There's also some frustration from Tyrrell Hatton at a lack of form from various players in the team. 

Gareth Bale also drops in, as too does European Ryder Cup reject Adrian Meronk and even vice-captain Thomas Bjorn

Fear not though, this is just a bit of parody for you on a bleak Monday... ;)
