Rickie Fowler photo: Ryder Cup golfer creates certain super meme
Wives and girlfriends applaud their men as the US team players walk on stage during the opening ceremony of the 42nd Ryder Cup at Le Golf National. Photograph: Getty Images. The 42nd Ryder Cup started, like so many others before them, with the formal introduction of the wives and girlfriends. They were made to dress up like Stepford Wives and march in a parade on to the stage, where they made an immaculate backdrop for the opening ceremony. They spent the next hour sitting and standing, waving and clapping. They do not even get to stand by their men but have to line up behind them. It is not really clear why the Ryder Cup feels the need to have them do this.
STAR athlete Rickie Fowler has created a certain super-meme with one of the all-time most tragically awkward group photos. Everyone settling down for winter I'm just like RickieFowler pic.
This Thursday, golf fans around the world will turn their attention to Augusta National for the first men's major of the year, the Masters. It is, as Jim Nantz has so often put it, "A tradition unlike any other," filled with incredible views and even more spectacular golf. This year, there's plenty of compelling players to cheer for — Tiger Woods is looking to continue his comeback with another green jacket, Rory McIlroy is hoping to complete his career grand slam, and Rickie Fowler wants finally to get a major win under his belt.
