McIlroy said, “There was also three texts and two missed calls from Tiger, because they’re obviously still close. I sent him a quick message: ‘“It will be fine … long day … just want to go to bed.”

Tiger Woods surely conveyed his concerns to Rory McIlroy after his altercation. However, on the matter of LaCava caddying for Woods in the future, there has already been a decision long before the Ryder Cup. This is because LaCava has now switched to full-time caddying for Patrick Cantlay. Therefore, it is certain that he will not be seen caddying for Tiger Woods shortly when the legend makes a comeback into the game.
