Tommy Fleetwood has admitted he does not know why USA seemed to lack cohesion and unity during the Ryder Cup but felt Europe "played with our hearts a little bit more".
Europe won 17.5 - 10.5 at Le Golf National over the weekend, with reports subsequently emerging of discord within the American team.
Fleetwood has suggested Europe may have wanted the victory a little more than their opponents, with Thomas Bjorn's side showing a palpable sense of unity throughout the three-day tournament.
"It's really difficult. We have no idea what goes on and what's real in that dressing room," said Fleetwood, who won all four of the Foursomes and Fourballs matches he was involved in alongside Francesco Molinari.
"I think, at the end of the day, we as a team played so much better.
'I hate when my kids come to watch'
Tommy Fleetwood is surprised more spectators do not get hit by golf balls and has told his family not to stand anywhere where they could be in range.
"It's hard to know what goes on in their team room but they seem to be getting something wrong quite often.
"Who knows why that is. It's difficult to say we wanted it more but you get a sense we maybe played with our hearts a little bit more.
"Whether that's true or not, who knows."
