Dapper or Damper: The Ryder Cup

I love the Ryder Cup. Who doesn’t? It’s been tough to watch over the last 10 years or so, as the USA seems to win every other time on home soil and lose every time abroad. It’s always fun though, and it brings out some interesting attire, especially for the screaming masses.  

Euro fans – Dapper

I always feel a little uneasy about people wearing flags as clothing – I’m not sure if it’s disrespectful or not. But, it appears everyone does it and everyone’s happy, so let’s move on.  These guys look ridiculous and awesome. Although, I’m happy they went home without a win.

Team USA – Damper

They look just as insane as the Euro fans and I love it. USA!!

I’m tired of the camo. Is there a reason we need to militarize these golf outfits. I mean, it is a pretty American thing to do, but camo as a patriotic fashion statement is dumb.

Team Europe – Dapper

This was probably the best look of the week, and it happened on a practice day. I love the no-hat look that many Euros featured this week; it’s so old-school and it can only happen when they’re not required to wear their sponsors gear. The cardigan look is stellar. Rob Rock would be proud.

Team Europe – Dapper

All week, the Europeans featured really boring, bland choices. Solid shirts and pants that barely matched and were uninspiring overall. I like that Rory added some color with the Euro-flag shoes and the sweaters for the early morning were nice.

Team Screaming Rory – Dapper

The grey and the blue are boring and nice, and again, he added some color with the shoes. But mostly, the constant screaming and taunting between Rory and Fat Pat was the real show.

Team USA – Dapper

The Sunday attire was good. Definitely not as boring as Team Euro and not obnoxious. Plus, Pat was screaming at everyone, which was fantastic. 

Team Euro – Damper

The Euros got in on the see-through party on Saturday. Even if they weren’t see-through, these are still really ugly shirts.  

Team USA – Dapper

I loved the navy, red, and grey. A solid, and very American look. The hat design tho….not a fan.

Team USA – Damper

Yes, every single American golfer wore see-through pants on Saturday with a USA logo on the bottom. They were unfortunate and ugly. Rickie’s were even about 4 inches too short (cool shoes, though). So, unless seeing Brandt Snedeker’s underwear is what you tuned in for, this was bad.
