The 43rd Ryder Cup was held between the U.S.A. and Europe on Friday. As usual, the fans brought their passion and wore the appropriate outfits. Whistling Straits was flooded with American fans, who wore red, white, and blue to represent America’s flag. The Europeans wore blue and yellow to match theirs.
One fan dressed up in the role of Abraham Lincoln, the other in a Brooklyn Dodgers Jackie Robinson uniform. Both were nods towards the tournament’s return to America. The Americans’ win at the Ryder Cup is their only victory in five meetings with Europe. Another fan, eager to show his American pride, wore a mask depicting the bald eagle — the country’s national bird.
American Marshals, a fan club established during 2008 Ryder Cup, Valhalla Golf Club, wore red, white, and blue Viking outfits in honor of their first tournament. According to the Marshals, websiteSince 2008, they have worn American-inspired Viking attires to each Ryder Cup.
Some European fans wore yellow and blue overcoats that looked straight out of a Super Mario video. The Americans responded with stars-and stripes sweat suits, cowboy caps and temporary tattoos of American flag on their faces.
Ryder Cup fans bring humor and fun to the outfit planning for the tournament. Players are now doing the same. Rory McIlroy wore plastic cheeseheads on Thursday with his European teammates to please the multitude of Wisconsin fans at Whistling Straits.
This strategy may be sound considering how loud American fans can get.
