It didn't take long for the players to pump some energy into the Ryder Cup on Saturday.

In the opening foursome pairing, Rory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters faced Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler. On the first hole, just after Fowler dropped in a birdie putt, Pieters responded with one of his own to halve the hole. As the Ryder Cup rookie walked to pick up his ball, he put his right pointer finger to his mouth, shushing the loud Hazeltine crowd. It's the same move American Patrick Reed made famous at the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

Pieters' partner, McIlroy, also bowed to the crowd after winning his four-ball match Friday. It should be a fun weekend.
